She advised fans to invest in Josh to secure a “new, safe income”.

But unbeknownst to Katie, Josh was a conman.

The model’s rep said she too had been stung and added: “Katie would never knowingly engage in a social media endorsement if it were questionable.”

Ahead of being spotted at the airport, Katie shared an apology on her Instagram Stories.

“I want to thank Action Fraud for reaching out, for working with me in investigating this awful situation.

“This is precisely why Harvey’s Law is yet again so relevant.

“If we had the much-needed support channels in place required by law to provide IDs to be set up on social media accounts then people like this so-called Josh Chandler would not be able to hide themselves, target vulnerable people.

“My heart goes out to all those that this conman’s deceit has affected. I pledge to you all I will seek justice,” she added.

Where is Katie off to on holiday?

Where Katie is fleeing to is a mystery.

Carl filmed her at the airport earlier today and asked Princess: “Where are we off to?”

However, she replied: “It’s a secret.”

Then, turning to Harvey, he asked: “Where are we going?” He replied simply: “Secret.”

They were also seen being driven through the airport on a special buggy, with Katie wearing a face mask.

“I’m trying to be in disguise but everyone’s just looking,” Katie said.

Carl told her: “You ain’t going to be in disguise with Harvey next to you.”
