Kris had shared a snap of himself downing shots on Instagram stories on Tuesday night, as he celebrated his birthday at Meze in Bexleyheath, but Katie had not been pictured. 

The comes amid a series of woes for Katie who is currently undergoing a 28-day stint at The Priory, where she is being treated for post-traumatic stress disorder.

It was not known she was still in contact with Kris as she is now in a new relationship with toyboy Alex Adderson, 25. 

Sources claimed Katie's romance with Alex has escalated rapidly since they enjoyed a wild holiday in Mallorca - days after she was filmed rapping about 'loving coke'.

Back in February, the mother-of-five was banned from driving for six months after doing 60mph on the 50mph A24.

Moreover, she famously handed herself into police back in July for driving while on a six-month ban.

Taking to Instagram, the former glamour model admitted that she thought the ban was over - but as soon as she realised it wasn't, confessed her wrongdoing to authorities to avoid a 'guilty conscience.'

She said at the time: 'Been on such an emotional rollercoaster the last 6 months and my head has been all over the place, so much so, that I thought my driving ban was up.

'After driving to Harvey's Hospital appointment I have NOW found out that I don't get my licence back until 8th August. With this on my conscience I called police and reported myself,' Katie confessed. 

'I've come such a long way and just want easy life now. 'I have got out of a hole and am finally happy and looking forward to being my old independent self.'

Katie's driving ban was first reported by The Sun, who revealed earlier this year that the businesswoman wouldn't be able to get behind the wheel for six months because she already had points on her licence when she was handed another six for her latest speeding offence.

The reality star received a £750 fine as well as £200 in costs and a £75 surcharge following her conviction, according to the paper.

Katie reportedly failed to inform police when she received the ticket for breaking the speeding limit in a 50mph limit on the A24 in Dial Post, West Sussex in 2017.

It is almost six years since Katie was barred from driving on the roads for 12 months for the first time back in 2012.

She admitted back in April that her beloved mother 'could die within a month' because contracting an innocuous cold could have a fatal outcome for the lung condition she is battling, Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.

Amy was diagnosed with IPF, a rare condition that causes progressive and irreversible scarring of the lungs, in 2017. Speaking to Now Magazine in an emotional interview.

Katie shared: 'My mum is dying, it’s that simple. They normally diagnose is three to five years but Mum has already had to change her life.

She now Katie has just three weeks before learning whether she'll officially be declared bankrupt.

The embattled starm, who was once thought to be worth £45m, was not present at the High Court Rolls building in London as her team submitted proposals for an individual voluntary agreement (IVA).

The hearing, which lasted less than 30 seconds and which she did not attend in person, relates to tax owed to HMRC.

A representative of HMRC said: 'The debtors insolvency practitioners made contact with HMRC and is considering submitting an IVA proposal and HMRC is not contesting it.'

An IVA sees creditors paid back over an agreed period of time and her application will be heard in 12 weeks on October 30. 

The Sun had previously reported that she's relying on her wealthy toyboy beau Alex to pay for everything — and she 'hopes to start over' as she 'expects' to be declared bankrupt.

Katie is also said to already be trying to sell her £2million West Sussex mansion which she bought in 2014.

She reportedly urged her ex Kieran to help her find new homes for her farmyard  animals— which includes two llamas, six rabbits and four horses, as well as her goats, sheep, ducks and pigs.

A source revealed in the summer: 'Katie hasn't had the easiest time of late, and isn't as flush as she was. She told Kieran to get rid of the animals but he's been struggling to offload the ­llamas for £2,000 a pop.

'He's selling her prize horses for £7,000 to an equestrian centre near her West Sussex home. And she has been touting the guinea pigs, goats and rabbits to friends and family.'

According to Heat, the glamour model continued to splash the cash at an alarming rate, with her expenses including £1,500 a month on twice-weekly manicures and pedicures. 

The star is also said to fork out £11,000 a month on a sizeable team of staff to help keep things ticking over at her Sussex mansion, reportedly employing two nannies, a housekeeper, a stable hand and a gardener.

Among the other expenses reportedly on the mother-of-five's monthly list are £1,000 on maintaining her hairstyles, £800 for massages every other day, £800 for a makeup artist to keep her looking glam and £400 on facials.

The star, who is said to spend £500 a month on age-reversing treatments, is also said to be shelling out an eye-watering £2,000 just to keep her grand abode warm.

With a mortgage costing her a reported £10,000 a month, Katie — who was once estimated to be worth £40million — is also said to be spending £60,000 a year on such farm machinery as a milking machine and tractor.

Additionally, she is believed to have continued spending £25,000 a year on the cosmetic surgeries for which she has become famous — all while reportedly facing financial ruin as her once gargantuan fortune allegedly dries up
