A source told The Sun: ‘She was talking about moving in with Carl before the holiday to Turkey, and being together 24/7 has only encouraged her to officially move in together.
‘They’re house-hunting together in Essex this week and can’t wait to live together. They’re extremely loved up and her kids have given him the thumbs up. She’s over the moon.’
A representative for Katie confirmed the plans, explaining: ‘As Katie is temporarily wheelchair-bound, something no one could have foreseen, she has voiced the possibility of looking for a property that would work better for her wheelchair access and mobility scooter.
‘Carl as Katie’s carer would be living with her. There is a lot to consider: Katie’s rehabilitation, the children, school, respective family, work commitments.
‘Essex would be a probable location – Katie however remains in her current rented property in Surrey.’

Earlier this week Katie slammed trolls who accused her of faking her injury – as her daughter Princess claimed her mother won’t walk properly for a year.
Taking to an Instagram video, the mother and daughter addressed those who have accused them of lying – after one troll claimed Katie was in fact abroad having bunion surgery.
‘By the way, someone said on my Instagram, ”Oh she has had bunions done on both feet!”
‘Well, when I have the X-rays and show you, I haven’t had bunions, I have never had bunions in my life!’ Katie insisted.

Princess then chimed in, saying: ‘She’ll be in a wheelchair for three to six months – but she won’t walk for a year!’
Attempting to explain the condition – which sees a painful bump appear where the toe and foot connect – Katie seemed unsure herself, saying: ‘Like, you know, the side where you get like… that is one thing perfect about me, my feet! But obviously they are not perfect now!
‘At least I am learning to use the wheelchair better now!’
