Katie Piper has reassured her fans about THAT Instagram post, where she revealed she had received a jellyfish sting on her pregnancy bump

Earlier this month, Katie posted a compilation of photos on the social media platform of her bump, hand and leg covered in cream, captioning it: "‪So today wasn't my best day.....stung by a jelly fish in 3 places one area was my baby bum!"

Fans were quick to react to the post, writing in the comments section "Hope you and baby are ok. xxx" and recommending remedies such as vinegar and - the classic Friends cure - urine.

Speaking on Lorraine this morning, Katie, who is due to give birth over Christmas, said she had at the time feared the sting might be "toxic".

We can totally relate to Katie getting worried - like any mum to be - but thankfully her concerns were unfounded.

She told Lorraine Kelly: “It was less dramatic than it sounds.

"I was abroad working and I was in the sea, and I go stung on my hand. And then it fell off and on to my bump, and fell onto my leg.

“It was sore, but I think I was just more worried being pregnant … could it be toxic? But it’s not as bad as it looks."

Katie also revealed how her three year old daughter, Belle, responded to the baby news.

“I’m really excited about being big sister but I don’t want the baby to live with us.”

Uh oh - not sure how that one's going to work out...but we're sure Belle will get used to it!

Following the baby's birth, Katie will be embarking on her first UK live tour, "What's In My Head", in 2018 where she will be discussing anxiety and mental health issues.
