Katie, 41, said: “It’s been horrible.
“The police were trying to get hold of me all week to tell me they’d discovered this threat against me, a plan to kidnap me.
“Their Intelligence guys have tracked down this gang in Romford, Essex, and have them under surveillance.
“I have been upgraded to a ‘red’ security alert which means I’m basically just a touch of a button away from contacting them in an emergency, if someone attacks me.

“Obviously it’s not a nice thought and has been quite stressful.”
As well as installing new security cameras around her mansion in Sussex, Katie also has a trained, £6,000 protection dog – an Alsatian called Blade.
Last year a gang threatened to abduct her eldest son, Harvey, 16, in an effort to extort £50,000.
And last March her car was hijacked in South Africa.

A minder was hit in the face and gems, cash, laptops and camera gear worth tens of thousands of pounds were snatched.
She also previously revealed that mechanics once found a tracking device on her car, prompting fears someone could be planning to take her four youngest children Junior, Princess, Bunny and Jett.
The kidnap plot comes amid a turbulent time in Katie’s love life.
She dumped fiancé Kris Boyson over text while she was on holiday in Turkey with three of her five children, and her new man Charlie Drury.
