‘It’s frustrating as I feel young but I’m not inside. I’m 43 this month so I guess I need help,’ she said.

In a recent interview she defended her eighth engagement to Carl insisting that she is in a completely different place in her life now than she was before.
Katie declared: ‘It will be completely different. My dress will be different, I will look different and my mind is different.
‘I know so many people out there are like, “Oh yeah, we’ve heard this before”. Yeah, because I’ve rushed into things so much, made wrong choices but my head wasn’t right. My head is so right now, I’m a different person.’
Carl added: ‘Has not everyone in this country said the same things about previous partners when they’re with their current one? Everybody does that.
‘When you’re in that relationship at the time everyone says all of those things.’
Katie added: ‘He’s been engaged and that before but because he’s not in the public eye no one sees it. We’ve all got pasts.’
