She continued: “Is it weird to call Pete and Kate the British Brad and Jen? Probably – I think they’re both very happy as they are with their lovely partners – whereas I think everyone would love Bradifer to give it another shot.”

She even served as a bridesmaid at Katie and Peter’s lavish Highclere Castle wedding.

Kerry went on to sign up with Peter’s agent just as Katie and Peter were splitting up.

But by 2017, they managed to patch up their decade long feud.

A source told The Sun that they reconciled following their disastrous relationships.

Kerry split up with the now late George Kay, and Katie had her on-and-off relationship with her now ex-husband Kieran Hayler.

A source said: “Kerry and Katie drifted apart after their time in the jungle but have always kept in touch in a very loose way.

“Now Katie had her drama with Kieran and Kerry with George they have really become close again.

“They both live near each other in Sussex so it’s easy for them to see each other and they have become a regular fixture in each other’s lives again.”
