The 42-year-old shared the shocking moment in her latest YouTube video, explaining that her cat, Hagrid, caught the rat and let it loose inside her home.
‘He normally brings them back alive or half alive like a present,’ she told the camera.
‘Or he’ll start eating it in front of you.’
The clip showed the mum-of-five, her eldest daughter, Princess, and boyfriend Carl Woods attempt to catch the rat, and get it out of the property.
They were seen lifting sofas and boxes of belongings up, before panicking when it scuttled across the floor in front of them.
At one point, the pest hid inside Katie’s mobility scooter, which she has been using after she broke both of her feet while on holiday in Turkey earlier this year.
A message later flashed up on screen, which read: ‘Unfortunately when the camera was switched off, the rat ran out of the door shortly after Carl lifted the sofa.
‘We have since scrubbed the whole lounge from top to bottom.’
Katie is currently living in a rented home after moving out of her £2million Sussex house – dubbed the ‘mucky mansion’.
However, it has been claimed that a rodent infestation is making the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here star’s property ‘uninhabitable’.
‘There are hundreds of them trying to get into the house from outside – everyone thinks they’ve come over from a nearby garden centre which has rat problems, and have been attracted by the bins,’ an insider told the Sun.
‘She’s complained to the landlord and hopefully they’ll sort it out.’
Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Katie for a comment.
