What happened with Katherine Ryan’s “bum lift”?

In February 2017, the star shocked her followers when she shared pictures appearing to show the results of a bum lift ‘procedure’ – later revealing that it wasn’t real after all.

After receiving support from fans, as they reacted to the painful-looking photos, Katherine later tweeted “thanks for your ridicule and concern”, before revealing the photos weren’t real.

In fact, it was an attempt to promote The Fake News Show on Channel 4, and it left fans angry and upset.

One tweeted: “I feel embarrassed now that I was concerned for you. But I guess that as long as it is to promote a TV show it doesn’t matter.”

However Katherine defended herself, claiming it was a “lesson” for people not to be “influenced” online.
