Katie first gave fans a glimpse of her new boyfriend Joe - the director of a herbal supplements company Life Seed Botanicals - in November, when she shared a cosy image cuddled up at an event. 

In September 2022, Katie split from her fiancé Harry just six months after the birth of their first child.

The TV personality shocked her Instagram followers by deleting all pictures of her former partner, before declaring she had been 'settling for way less' than she deserved.

Prior to Harry she was in high profile relationships with Love Island co-star Sophie Gradon and model Danielle Whittaker. 

The mother-of-one found fame after appearing on ITV2's Love Island in 2016, where she made history by pairing up with the late Sophie in the show's first same-sex couple. 

She continued to hit the headlines afterwards for her antics, which included earning herself a 'lifetime ban' from Cheltenham Festival after she flashed her breasts at punters; selling X-rated content on OnlyFans; and being questioned by police after a fight that saw her rushed to hospital.

The last couple of years proved to be the most tumultuous, with Katie battling post-natal depression following the birth of daughter Thaiga, now 22 months, splitting from her fiancé and her brush with the law.
