The 39-year-old was discussing the scandal surrounding allegations of sexual harassment and rape against Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, when she dropped the bombshell that her rapist is a celebrity known to Ruth and Eamonn.
‘I’ve been raped by a celebrity, you would have heard of them’, she told the stunned presenters on Friday’s show.
‘I’ve never said a word, I don’t want to go down that road. It happened years ago and then time goes on so I just think its best to stay out of it.’
The mother-of-five also said she would reveal the identity of her rapist off-camera to Ruth and Eamonn, saying: ‘There’s a reason why I cant say it. I can say it off air, and then you’ll say ‘right I see’.
‘When you’ve seen that person on the telly, you say ‘oh my god’.
The former glamour model also opened up about the night she says she was raped.
‘I agreed to go back to the house, sometimes you think is it rape or not, but when you say no, you mean no. I know I was raped,’ she stated, adding, ‘Women shouldn’t shy away they should report it.’
It’s been a tough few weeks for Katie since finding out her mother is terminally ill and the demise of her marriage to estranged husband Kieran Hayler.
She also revealed she is under police protection after thugs threatened to ‘smash in’ the face of her 15-year-old son Harvey, unless she paid them £50,000.
Alluding to her rollercoaster few weeks the star said: ‘The past six weeks I’ve lost a baby, found out Kieran was cheating with the nanny, found out my mum is dying, and the Chris (Hughes) stuff has got out of control.
‘I’ve had this £50,000 cash threat that if they don’t give it they’re going to smash Harvey’s face in. I’m under police protection.’
