The exciting news follows shortly after Katie’s BBC documentary.

It is believed the star has since bagged a second instalment, which will follow Harvey as he heads off to residential college.

ED! has contacted Katie’s rep for further comment.

What else has Katie been up to?

Meanwhile, when it comes to her own struggles, Katie recently revealed she once “planned to take her own life”.

The reality star opened up on mental health battles on BBC Northern Ireland’s Nolan Live.

During the chat, Katie admitted she let her problems “build up” before eventually getting help in rehab.

She said: “I wanted to commit suicide. I planned it, I did everything… Everything was on top of me, it was a build up.

“I’m only human, I’m strong but there’s only so much you can take and I could have either committed suicide or got help.”

Thankfully, Katie turned her life around for the sake of her five children.

She continued: “Every time I went to do it I thought, ‘I can’t, I’ve got kids, sort yourself out’, so I asked for help, got help, and I stuck to it.

“I went to The Priory for five weeks and I’m a brand new person now.”

Meanwhile, earlier this month, Katie admitted she was at her “worst” while appearing on Loose Women.
