Katie does politics

Katie kickstarted the year by going to Parliament with her son Harvey. The mum-of-five was campaigning against internet trolling, which Harvey continues to be a victim of. She said that she had already been successful in having two people arrested because of trolling, explaining: "I got two people arrested, (the police) seized all their computers, they seized everything, took them quite far, but then it got to the point where they can't charge them with nothing because there's nothing in place for it". Could the KP be the next prime minister?

Katie declares: 'I am back'

Katie posted a fierce message to Instagram after breaking an almost two month social media silence. In the post, she wrote: "I have my own story. I am not perfect. I am healing. I am learning everyday. I am a real person. I have feelings. I am doing the best I can do. I am being the best person and mother I can be. I have taken the time I needed to understand myself. This is now my time. I am back ❤ufe0f."We can't wait to see what comes next...

A source says, “Katie’s really anxious about Kieran’s legal plans.

"She never expected him to want custody, assuming that he'd be content playing happy families with Michelle, who has kids of her own.

"Right now, they split their time with the kids pretty equally and she thought that arrangement was working.

"But she's heard about Kieran wanting full custody through friends and now she’s scared that it could end up with the kids being taken off her.

"She's too scared to ask him about it in case he confirms her worst fears.

"She's already admitted how hard it is to watch Michelle bond with Jett and Bunny so the idea of them living with her and Kieran permanently is really painful."

The source says, "After everything Katie has been through, the kids are what truly make her happy. It's been hard for her seeing Princess and Junior move in with Pete, as she was so used to a busy house full of kids. The idea of Jett and Bunny moving out too feels like another bitter blow."

They went on, “Katie adores her kids and has always loved her family set-up, even if it has been tricky in the past with five kids and Harvey with a disability. But her worst nightmare is to end up alone. Deep down she’s terrified that she’ll end up being left behind."
