Even by Katie Price’s standards, her relationship with Carl Woods has been quite the rollercoaster ride.
Earlier this month, the mum-of-five posted a list of things she loved about “being single”. Then, less than two weeks later, she was – once again – back in the arms of her on-off lover, strolling through London.
Although Katie and Carl seemed delighted to be reunited again following a sunshine break in Thailand, friends of the couple – who got engaged in 2021, but announced they’d split last November – have expressed concerns over their rocky romance, believing the pair would be better off apart.
“Katie and Carl are back together and are trying to get things back on track. They can’t seem to stay away from each other,” a source revealed.
“They were in Thailand together and although Katie insisted she was single, it was a bit of a make or break trip for them and they’ve decided to give things another go.
“Friends are worried their relationship is toxic and while they might seem happy now, they think things will get bad again. When they’re together they constantly argue, but despite the fighting, they just can’t seem to stay apart. When they split, neither of them wants to see the other with anyone else, either.”
And although the couple are trying to give things another go, our source says their frequent spats are tough for their loved ones to endure.
“They say they’re in love and really care for each other, but the arguing is really draining,” we’re told. “Pals think the best decision would be for them to stay apart as they just can’t see them being able to make it work long-term.”
Katie, 44, and Carl, 34, looked keen to prove they were back on track recently as they were seen arm-in-arm in the capital.
The couple also spent time with Katie’s eldest son Harvey, 20, from her relationship with Dwight Yorke, after she previously revealed she was “so excited to see my baby” following a month apart.
Katie jetted back from her extended Thailand getaway, where she was joined by Jett, nine, and Bunny, eight – her children with her ex, Kieran Hayler – two weeks ago. Despite her earlier claim she was “single”, Carl – who’d returned to the UK alone, days earlier – met them at Heathrow Airport.
They also set tongues wagging that they may have rekindled their relationship when eagle-eyed fans spotted they’d started following each other on Instagram again.
The couple first met in summer 2020 at Essex hotspot Sheesh, and car salesman Carl popped the question in spring 2021. Following a turbulent relationship, they appeared to split for good last year after Carl accused Katie of being unfaithful.
Taking to Instagram Stories in November, he claimed the former glamour model admitted she had “cheated” on him and “slept with somebody else”.
While they were spotted back together on several occasions just days later, Katie – who is also mum to Junior, 17, and Princess, 15, with her ex Peter Andre – vowed to remain single.
She admitted earlier this year she was “flattered” by the amount of DMs she’s received from men, but added, “I’m not replying or getting into any conversation because I want to focus on my work, children, family and myself.”
In February, she seemed determined to stay single, saying, “I like being on my own. I’m single and love my own space. I’m just enjoying time with the kids and I want to throw myself into work.”
A few weeks later, she confirmed her solo status again, writing on Instagram Stories, “The best thing about being single is no drama, no fighting, no crying, no worries, no confusion, no heartbreak.”
