Brave Katie Price battles through London Marathon as knee injury takes its toll
The former glamour girl's pace means she is predicted to finish in a time of just under eight hours.
If she keeps up her current pace, Katie, 39, is expected to cross the finishing line at around 7pm this evening.
The TV star, who is dressed as pair of lungs for her chosen charity, has already declared she will cross complete the race even if she has to "crawl".
Katie is running in aid of the British Lung Foundation after her mum was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2017.
The star previously suffered heartache during the annual endurance race in 2009 when she suffered a miscarriage.
This time, Katie is determined to finish the race again – no matter what happens on the way round.
She told The Daily Mirror: “If I collapse, I better f***ing get up again.
"But even if I end up having to crawl, I will get over that line. Whatever has gone on in my life this year, I’ll put that aside on the day.
Amy exclusively told Sun Online: “I am so proud of Katie. The last few months have been a rollercoaster ride for my family.
“The main thing is that we raise awareness of what is a much-neglected health area, so the people with the power to do something take notice and act.
“I have a terminal lung condition that took far too long to be diagnosed.
“A national plan for lung disease will help patients get the right diagnosis and early access to the right treatment and care.
“Everyone who runs the London Marathon does it for their own personal reasons and the journey they’ve been on.
“It means something to everyone. And for Kate it’s about me.”
Katie told Sun Online: “Somebody dies from lung disease every five minutes in the UK.
“It’s important that we raise awareness of the need for fast, accurate diagnosis and the best treatment."
