Katie Price and Carl Woods have reportedly split, just days after a romantic trip to Thailand and Carl's appearance in court last week after he was accused of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour in a row last August. Katie was by his side when he pleaded not guilty to using threatening and abusive behaviour.

Carl proposed to Katie in April 2021 after just 10 months of dating and the couple had recently spoken about trying for a baby before getting married later this year.

However, fans caught on to the fact things were a bit rocky between them after photos of Katie disappeared from Carl's Instagram page over the weekend.

And according to multiple sources, Katie and Carl, who have split before, have called time on their relationship for good.

Another source told the Sun “Katie and Carl have decided to split up. It’s been a difficult couple of months and their ongoing court cases have just added even more stress to the situation.

“It really seems to be over for now and they are both very sad about it. But of course no one would be surprised if they got back together.”

Another source told the publication that Carl had ended things as he struggled to trust Katie and accuses her of being “a cheat and a player”.

Since the news broke both Carl and Katie have been posting to social media, with Katie posting a video of her and Princess celebrating Mother's Day on Instagram.

She captioned the post, "My girl ❤️❤️❤️❤️."

Carl also posted a picture of him and a friend on a night out with the caption, "There are friends and there is family and then there is friends that are family."

Carl Woods has been charged with 'threatening and abusive behaviour'

Their split comes just days after Carl appeared in court accused of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour in a row with Katie last August. Carl has been charged under Section 4 of the Public Order Act is set to face trial after pleading not guilty.


A police statement said: "A man arrested following an incident in Little Canfield, on August 23 2021, has been charged.

"Carl Woods, 33, of Dunmow Road, Little Canfield, has been charged under Section 4 of the Public Order Act.

"He is due to appear at Colchester Magistrates Court on March 10."

In August 2021, it came to light that a man was arrested after Katie was taken to hospital following multiple facial injuries.

Soon after the news that he had been charged occurred, Carl took to Instagram to confirm he didn’t hit or coercively control her in a lengthy rant.

He said, "The papers are saying I have been charged with a public order offence. Yes I have. A public order offence is just arguing in the street and using foul language that is what I have been charged with.

"I never attacked her."

He then continued that he has 'black and white proof' that he didn't hit his fiancé, “Everything I say I have got proof of and I will show it. So everyone who is messaging me saying you attacked Katie, you did this, the truth is out. No it’s not, the truth is not out at all.”

In the background Katie interjected saying, “I have never called the police on you, never.”

At the time of the incident, Carl stuck by Katie and insisted that he had nothing to do with the alleged assault.

"I have remained quiet until now due to the investigation being carried out by the police however I have found it so difficult to keep quiet on social media due to speculation and shocking abuse that I have received," he wrote on Instagram.

Who is Carl Woods?

The former squeeze of former glamour model Katie Price, Carl Woods had been credited with bringing Katie out of a turbulent time when she was seeking treatment for PTSD and a well-publicised battle with drug and alcohol abuse.

“Everyone tells me she’s changed since she’s been with me and that I’ve made her happy,” he told Closer back in January. “She had been in a bad place before she met me. I knew nothing about that time in her life when we first met, but it seems she’d lost her head a few times.”

The couple have recently announced their split however, following accusations of cheating and Carl's appearance in court following charges of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour in a row with Katie

Are Carl Woods and Katie Price engaged?

Following the recent news of their split it seems Katie and Carl's engagement is off. They confirmed their engagement – her eighth – in April 2021, just weeks after her divorce from third husband Kieran Hayler was finalised.

After they split, Alex went on to star in Celebrity Big Brother and he continues to fight. He's been married to Nikki Manashe since 2013. Most recently, he has been involved in a sex tape allegation - claiming that Katie showed a group of people a video of him performing a sex act. Will the drama ever end? (We hope not.)

It looked like Katie had a good thing going with Kieran Hayler and their two kids, Jett and Bunny. But Kieran had to go and ruin it by cheating on Katie with her nanny, two best friends (while she was pregnant), then again with a 19-year-old shop assistant. Katie kept taking him backbut she FINALLY called it quits in May 2018.

Carl Woods Love Island

Fans of KP will know that when he first appeared on the scene, Carl was touted in the media as being a former Love Island contestant – but it’s not strictly the case.

In 2016 – the same series that launched the careers of Alex and Olivia Bowen and Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde – Carl took part in a speed dating challenge but failed to catch the eye of any of the Islanders and didn’t make it into the actual villa.

Carl Woods and Harvey Price

In October 2020 Katie gave an interview saying that her eldest son Harvey, who suffers from multiple disabilities including autism, Prader Willi syndrome and partial blindness, had been “majorly let down” by her boyfriends in the past but that Carl was his “best friend”.

The following April, Carl was slammed on social media for “teasing Harvey” over his carrot cake, but it turned out to be all good fun, with Katie previously saying, “He wants a bit of winding up.

“At the minute, I play the mum and dad role with him. When I do YouTube, he knows when men walk in and he'll go 'Alright, d--khead?' and stuff like that, because he just wants that banter with the guys.”

What is Carl Woods’ age?

At 33, Carl is 11 years Katie’s junior.

What is Carl Woods’ job?

Carl is a Car dealer from Essex, and Katie had often praised him for being financially independent, with a source telling Closer in August 2020, “Carl has his own money, which he’s made by helping build his family’s motor dealership, and he spoils Katie.”

In January 2022, both Katie and Carl revealed that they had joined adult site OnlyFans.

As well as his (very short) stint on Love Island, Carl took part in a one off ITVBe venture called Killer Camp in 2018, which threw a bunch of attractive singletons together for what appeared to be a dating show but turned out to be more akin to an IRL game of Cluedo.
