The former model, 42, was set to front the MTV unscripted TV drama as a ‘affection master’ yet as per her rep, she has chosen to venture down.

Katie was in talks to offer her guidance to contenders on the show and was set to fly out to Columbia to film in the not so distant future.

Yet, shooting for the dating arrangement has been required to be postponed for a very long time due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s idea the mum-of-five has a bustling timetable for the impending year, which implies it’s far-fetched she can direct her full concentration toward recording once it resumes.

Her agent told The Sun : “Katie has commitments in the UK and is certainly focused on a super exciting year ahead

They added Katie is so loved-up with Carl and she doesn’t want to spend too much time away from him.

The source continued: “She also doesn’t want to be away from her family and Carl for a long time.

“She’s talked a lot about how she wants to be engaged soon and won’t be able to bring him – or her kids – with her if she does have to go into a filming bubble.”

It comes after Katie had been in talks to join the show in an offer to dole out guidance to hopefuls, with her rep affirming she was addressing managers at that point.

The three-times wedded reality star was believed to be the ‘wonderful fit’ having been in a few public connections.

Ex On The Beach is being shot in Columbia and has been pushed back until the mid year because of Covid-19 travel limitations.

Just a week ago, Katie was spouting over her ‘wonderful man’ on Good Morning Britain – advising the hosts she will wed him.

She is incredibly content with Carl and is going from strength to-strength with him.
