The media personality, 45, let her hair down on a night out at Bobby’s Bar in Newcastle on Sunday, treating revellers to her singing chops with a spot of karaoke.
But what really got clubbers talking was the mystery man that Katie, who has been married three times previously, cosied up to in the wake of her messy split from ex-fiance Woods, 34, on New Year’s Eve.
‘He came in after her and they sat together for at least an hour. They looked very cosy together, especially when she rested her arm on his shoulder,’ a partygoer told The Mirror.
It comes as The Sun previously reported the pair had been getting close, with an insider revealing: ‘They’ve met a few times and are texting each other constantly. She’s really into him – this is the first man she’s actually been interested in since Carl.’
JJ, full name John Joe Slater, 31, appeared on the hit reality show Married At First Sight UK last year where he tied the knot with Bianca Petronzi.
But after claiming she wasn’t his ‘usual type’, he moved on to fellow contestant Ella Morgan who was initially coupled with Nathanial Valentino.
During their final vows, JJ and Bianca decided to go their separate ways but maintained that they remain good friends following their experience on the show.
The pair got together in 2020, but in November fans noticed the pair had unfollowed each other on social media, and Katie had purged any trace of him from her Instagram grid.
After getting engaged in July 2021, Katie and Carl had plans to ‘elope’ but in March the following year, the romance was called off.
Then, everyone got very confused when they attended several events together, seeming to be back on – but it wasn’t meant to be.
Earlier this month, Carl posted a rather harsh Instagram story, which seemed to be directed at Katie.
The 34-year-old Love Islander reshared an image of a 4×4 car smashing into a tree with the caption: ‘Narcissists be like, it’s the tree’s fault!!!!!’
Two years ago, Katie crashed her car after getting behind the wheel while intoxicated in what she calls her ‘rock bottom’ moment.
Katie was famously married to Mysterious Girl singer Peter Andre, who she shares two children with – Princess, 16, and Junior, 18.
She tied the knot with mixed martial artist Alex Reid in 2010, but it wasn’t a match made in heaven as the couple split two years later.
Kieran Hayler and Katie wed in 2013, welcoming children Jett, nine, and Bunny, eight. They later called time on their marriage in 2018.
Metro.co.uk has contacted representatives for Katie Price for comment.
