Kate confessed, “[It’s] my pre-baby weight, really. I’m absolutely thrilled. I feel like I’ve won already.”

Kate Silverton Illness

Kate suffered an allergic reaction after eating a prawn salad . In an article she published in 2019, she explained how she  nearly died from anaphylaxis.

While presenting for the BBC at Royal Ascot, I’d stopped for lunch, opting for a delicious prawn salad. But as I walked to the car to leave for home, a tickly cough began to irritate me. It became more intense until I was hunched over, battling a dramatic coughing fit. I stumbled around the street, red welts popping up across my chest and neck and my tongue doubled in size. Struggling for breath, I fell to the floor, certain I would die. Thankfully a passer-by recognized my symptoms instantly and injected her EpiPen into my thigh. My savior, a woman called Kate Dale, was highly allergic to nuts, so carried her life-saving shot of adrenaline at all times. And thank heavens she did, otherwise I would not be here to write this.

I researched forensically, asking leading allergy experts for answers. Some natural health advocates believe a weakened immune system might be partly to blame. So, I made changes to my lifestyle, aside from abandoning shellfish. I filled my diet with gut-friendly, fermented foods such as kefir and sauerkraut, healthy fats and home-cooked meals. I ate sugar sparingly.

In January 2008, Silverton sued a clinic after an allegedly botched cosmetic surgery procedure for treatment of acne scars. Silverton said that the procedure caused a severe skin reaction and she had to take two weeks off work after the treatment. The lawsuit filed for unspecified monetary damages
