And while the mum of five was all smiles in the pool as she splashed around with her kids, a friend of the former glamour model tells us that privately she is devastated.
Our source revealed: “Forget Katie’s man worries – she’s got bigger problems. She is losing her hair and is worried this is the worst it has ever been.
“Katie has told her pals, ‘My hair is everything to me and without it I feel ugly, it gives me strength, just like Samson and Delilah.”

And the My Crazy Life star, who was forced to wear wigs two years ago when she lost her hair due to stress, is worried that her thinning locks draw even more attention to her recent spree of surgeries.
“She’s really concerned the patches expose the scars she wants to hide around her ears,” continued the pal, who added that the way Katie treats her tresses doesn’t help.
“Katie dyes her hair so often the chemical swelling process leaves her hair brittle and weak. She will have to go back to wearing wigs for at least six months to give her hair chance to regrow.
“She could be left permanently bald if she isn’t careful.”
It is believed the reason for Katie’s hair loss is a combination of several factors.
Katie believes it’s been caused by stress as a result of her recent split from Kris Boyson.
After Katie cheated on him with toy boy Charles Drury, she dumped the personal trainer by text and the split has got ugly.

Last week Kris was pictured throwing out big bags full of Katie’s belongings at his home and he is said to be “furious” with the way he has been treated.
And this isn’t the first time Katie has suffered from hair loss.
She lost her hair back in 2017 when she was under emotional strain and only saved it cutting her it short and ditching her hair extensions and weaves in favour of wigs.
She hit back at fans who pointed out her bald patches on instagram, saying: “I’ve had 5 kids stress last year and hair loss due to it so not extensions so thanks for the put down !”
She even uploaded a video of her hairdresser blow drying her wig on a mannequin while she sat close by, her bald patches clear to see.
Also putting a strain on Katie’s locks is the rigorous dieting she has undertaken after deciding she needed to lose two stone.
Back in April, she moaned about her body on Loose Women, claiming: “I have put on weight and I look disgusting at the moment.”
And since then she has followed a series of extreme diets in a bid to lose weight rapidly ahead of her surgeries.
