Katie is best known for coupling up with the late Sophie Gradon on Love Island.

Sophie was originally coupled up with Tom Powell but he quit the show after his ex Emma entered the villa and caused tension between him and Sophie.

Katie then chose to recouple with Sophie but the producers wouldn't allow them to be "official" even though they went on a date and kissed.

However Sophie then dumped Katie and quit the show to be with Tom again.

Katie later paired off with Adam Maxted – and she eventually placed fourth – but they split up within two weeks of coming back to reality.

Katie, a former glamour model, now lives in Thailand with Harry.

Since Love Island she has made a living from sexy shoots, while moving around to various exotic locations.
