After all the heartache she’s had to endure over the last few weeks, you’d think that finding another man would be the LAST thing on Katie Price’s mind.
But the serial dater has always said that she can’t stand the thought of being on her own, and has now signed up for a dating app.
Back in March this year, the 39-year-old told her Loose Women co-stars, “Normally mine have ended messy, or for good reasons I’ve split from them.”
She went on to say that she prefers to have a boyfriend than be single, and admitted to getting another man lined up and ready for when the relationship ends.
Except it seems she didn’t see the end of her four year marriage to husband, Kieran Hayler, coming.
After forgiving Kieran for cheating on her in 2014 with best friend Jane Pountney, she recently discovered that he had cheated again, but this time with their nanny, Nikki Brown.
Now the former glamour model has decided that signing up to a dating app is a good idea, much to the horror of her fans.
Katie took to Twitter revealing that her friends have recommended a friendship and dating app called Huggle to her.
Onwards and upwards! The girls are telling me to get on Huggle. Gonna give it a go! It's my new approach lol xx

The app doesn’t link people on looks, but connects them based on mutual interests and places they have in common instead, and lets users choose whether they want to find a date, make friends or both.
It’s not the first time Katie has relied on technology to find a new man, Katie and Kieran met over online chat service Blackberry Messenger in 2012, and they married just two months later in the Bahamas on January 16, 2013, after Kieran proposed on Christmas Day in 2012.
But fans think Katie should be taking some time out to find herself rather than rushing into a new relationship, particularly after suffering a miscarriage just days before she found out Kieran had been cheating on her and on top of that, her mum Amy was diagnosed with a terminal lung condition.
One fan commented, “This is why your life is a mess. Spend time healing and take care of your kids. They need to heal too, not see their mum with the next man.”
Another said, “The last thing you need is another bloke. Take time to be by yourself & get to know yourself, then you’ll stop walking into disasters.”
And a third added, “Way too soon x, slow down, plenty of time, think about the kids they have a lot to deal with already at the moment x, and so have you x.”
Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, Katie admitted she feels in “shock” about recent events and described it as a “stressful” time.
“It is difficult to cope. I don’t know how I am doing it. But I don’t want to be a victim. I am a survivor,” she said.
