It comes after Katie’s marriage proposal took place on a beautiful Thai beach on Christmas Day.
Katie and boyfriend Harry moved to the Southeast Asian country in February this year, telling fans at the time they wanted to “start a new life”.
Alongside the pictures, Katie, 26, wrote: “HE ASKED ME TO BE HIS WIFE. My best friend, my twin flame. The love of my life asked me to marry him and made me the happiest girl in the world!!!!
“My baby, we’ve been through so much together and built so much, I can’t wait to share this next chapter with you and to marry your hand forever.
“I love you so much, I have no other words to say! The best Christmas… YES YES YES.”

Katie first rose to fame when she appeared on the Love Island series in 2015, teaming up with Sophie Gradon to become the show’s first same-sex couple. Sophie tragically took her own life in 2018.
The engagement will definitely be one of the highlights of the couple’s life in Thailand.
In May last year, Katie revealed her flat had been robbed while she was away – with only a bra left behind by the thieves.

“I have to laugh or I will cry and there are no tears here, only lessons and blessings.
“Anyway, it was REAL being so far from home and not being able to access anything because everything was taken, including my diary with all my personal information. INSANE.”
