Katie Hopkins Collapses In Street After ‘Taking Ketamine’


Katie Hopkins has collapsed after taking ketamine in South Africa, according to reports.

The controversial commentator has shared a graphic picture of her receiving an injection while sat on the pavement after the incident.

In the picture, you can see that Hopkins is surrounded by paramedics and medical equipment as they attend to the ex-radio host.

Hopkins posted the image to Twitter, with the caption:

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

Other than this tweet, not much else is known about the incident.


The mother of three, who suffers from epilepsy, is in South Africa to document ‘the violent, ethnic cleansing of white farmers by armed, black gangs. It’s infuriating, it’s heartbreaking.’

On her blog, she wrote:

And the world doesn’t care. Or at least the mainstream media doesn’t care. Do you? Every day I’ve been down here, I’ve produced a short video clip of what I’ve seen. Brave men and women who are still fighting for their land, for their families and their future.

And so many who have been killed or wounded.


This isn’t the first time Katie Hopkins has experienced a serious medical incident in public, about six months ago she was rushed to hospital after dislocating her shoulder at Paddington station.

The 42-year-old received the painful injury after she carried a suitcase across the platform.

She had been on her way to Heathrow Airport to fly to the Politicon conference in Pasadena where she had been booked as a guest speaker.

Paramedics at the scene gave the controversial pundit emergency gas and air before rushing her straight to St Mary’s Hospital for further treatment.

Speaking at the time with the Sunday Mirror, Katie’s husband Mark Cross made the following statement:

This is a legacy from her years with epilepsy.

The staff at St Mary’s were brilliant and managed to get her patched up in a couple of hours.

In 2016, Katie underwent surgery where a portion of her brain was removed, relieving the severity of her epilepsy.


The surgery was successful and Katie later tweeted:

I am out and about. Flying solo. I am no longer epileptic. Come on then life. Let’s do this thing.

It is not yet known whether the incident in South Africa was exacerbated by her past medical history.
