An ITV spokesperson confirmed to Reveal that she told them she would not be taking part yesterday morning (8 February), just as news of the alleged affair broke.

Soon-to-be mum-of-five Katie stunned fans yesterday after announcing on Twitter that she is to divorce Kieran just 16 months after they married in the Bahamas.

Katie claims that he has been having a "full blown sexual affair" with her friend Jane Pountney and has branded her a "wh*re" and Kieran "disgusting".

Neither Jane or Kieran have commented on the allegations, however Jane's husband Derrick has denied the affair, insisting that it was simply a "storm in a teacup" sparked by a "drunken kiss".
