The controversial TV star had to be rescued by paramedics after she collapsed following a “dose of ketamine.”

While Katie Hopkins, 42, received some backlash for taking the drug, many people on social media are claiming she took the Class B drug for her epilepsy condition.

Some fans are now wishing the former Apprentice star well, insisting her epilepsy was to blame for the scary episode.

“Grateful thanks to the South African emergency service for putting me back together. Leaving it all on the road, to tell the truths not being told. *ketamine 1 / Hopkins 0.”

Katie, who suffers from epilepsy, is in South Africa to film a project.

Speaking about her epilepsy in the past, Katie said: “I felt worse in some ways when I was diagnosed. I never thought of myself as ‘epileptic’ or odd – which is pretty much what people think, isn’t it? That epilepsy equals odd.

“That’s harsh, but true. I think many people have the same preconceptions – that people with epilepsy fall on the floor and froth at the mouth.”

In March last year she underwent a 12-hour brain operation to treat the condition, which has “plagued her” since she was 19.
