“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.

The columnist faced another medical emergency in July after suffering a shoulder injury and being rushed to hospital.

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.

She added: “Also, my doctor pretty much said to me, ‘You’ve got epilepsy. You can try this range of drugs and if we’re lucky one of them will stop it.’ When a doctor says that to you, it’s not terribly reassuring.”

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