Katie Price's new boyfriend JJ Slater reveals he’s been compared to her son after they open up on romance

Katie Price's new boyfriend JJ Slater reveals he’s been compared to her son after they open up on romance

The MAFS UK star has allegedly been confused with one of Katie's five children

It's only been a week since the newest celebrity couple on the block - Katie Price and JJ Slater - confirmed their romance, but it sounds as though they've received a mixed reception from their fans...

Earlier this month, glamour model Katie was filmed enjoying a night out with potential flame, Married At First Sight UK star JJ, in Newcastle.

The mother-of-five was seen leaning into the dating show contestant as they cuddled up in the intimate Geordie venue, after which she was seen performing a song on karaoke.

A source told The Sun at the time: "They’ve met a few times and are texting each other constantly. She’s really into him - this is the first man she’s actually been interested in since Carl."

And last week, the flirtatious twosome finally confirmed their romance by going Insta-official, following a PDA-filled ski-trip to Bulgaria.

Sharing a selfie alongside her new man - just weeks after calling it quits with on-off Love Island ex Carl Woods - Katie, 45, gushed in the caption: "They say things happen for a reason, the unexpected happened. Fate. Ticks every box.

"@johnjoeslater you have proved to me you are a real gentleman and completely except me for me"

The couple went public with their romance last week.

JJ then commented below: "Fate… thank you so much for being you"

Hundreds of fans have since noted their joy that Katie - who shares son Junior, 18, and daughter Princess, 16, with ex-husband Peter Andre, and son Jett, 10, and Bunny, nine, with former flame Kieran Hayler - has found herself a 'keeper'.

Speaking of Katie's kids, however, in a brand new interview, JJ, 31, has admitted he's actually been mistaken for one of her brood... awkward.

Catching up with the Daily Mail during their first joint public appearance at the 2024 Gossies Awards in Dublin on Saturday night, Katie - who is also single mum to 21-year-old son Harvey Price - first claimed: "Everyone has said today that he looked like my nephew!"

JJ then reportedly laughed back: "I've heard son before, never nephew... nephew is quite funny, though, isn’t it?"

The couple then opened up on how their romance blossomed, with Katie explaining: "It wasn't just quick, we got to know each other behind the cameras before anyone speculated anything."

Just before Christmas, telly-lovers had watched musician and reality star JJ fall in love with transgender model Ella Morgan on the hit E4 dating show.

JJ had previously been coupled up with Bianca Petronzi, before he and Ella began secretly locking lips behind-the-scenes, continuing in the process as a brand new couple themselves.

Within a matter of weeks, however, the on-screen couple appeared to have parted ways.

And when it comes to Katie's former flings, despite appearing to be 'back on' around the festive period - with Carl featuring on several of Katie's Instagram uploads of stories - she appeared to declare 'I'm single' in a social media post delivered on New Year's Eve.
