Katie Price and her fiancé Carl Woods are reportedly on the brink of calling off their ‘dream wedding’ following a string of secret blazing rows.
The former glamour model, 43, has allegedly been ‘arguing non-stop for months’ with the former Love Island star, 32, while he struggles with her drama-filled lifestyle.
With plans to marry in only one month’s time, her friends have claimed she will stop at nothing to ensure her eighth engagement doesn’t end in failure.

A source told The Sun: ‘Carl has struggled in the spotlight after being bombarded with hateful messages on Instagram – Katie was even forced to insist publicly that he didn’t hit her after her alleged assault to try to make the trolls stop.
They went on to add that he is desperate for the abusive messages he receives ‘to go away’ altogether, after an unidentified man was arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour in August.
‘Their romance hasn’t been fun – there’s been Katie’s horrible accident, her bankruptcy woes, the recent court case – and now allegations about her ex Kieran Hayler.
‘Meanwhile, the dream wedding she keeps talking about still hasn’t happened. They’ve rowed about whether it should go ahead or they just end it now.’

It comes after Katie continued to encourage speculation she is pregnant with her sixth child on Friday after fans noticed a clue in her latest YouTube video.
In a new clip taken as she got ready behind the scenes of Good Morning Britain last week, the TV personality wore a gold chain with ‘baby’ written on it.
Katie has made no secret of her desire to have a baby with fiancé Carl, previously sharing that their trips abroad last year were ‘baby making’ holidays.
She said last year: ‘I’m not finished yet, I definitely want more babies. When you get old, I might look young and act young, but our bodies inside are getting old whether we like it or not.

‘So the next baby I have I will have to do IVF, I already know that. So that is another journey that I will talk about.’
Katie is mum to son Harvey with her footballer ex Dwight Yorke, and co-parents her children Junior, 16, Princess, 14, with ex-husband Peter Andre.
The star also has son Jett, eight, and daughter Bunny, seven, with her ex-husband Kieran Hayler.
Katie announced she has booked her wedding to fiancé Carl after her court case for crashing her uninsured car while disqualified and under the influence resulted in it being postponed.
The My Crazy Life star took to Instagram to announce the news during a public exchange of comments with her make-up artist, Fern Howe-Shepherd.
She wrote: ‘Yes we have our date,’ followed by a string of fire emojis – after the professional cosmetologist advertised her bridal services.
Ferne had posted: ‘Taking your bookings for 22/23 for your special day. Message me for my BRIDAL packages.’
In reply to Katie’s revelation, she penned: ‘@katieprice YEEESSSS BABYYYY,’ before four heart-eyed emojis.
It comes after the reality star confessed she is planning to walk down the aisle for the fourth time, announcing she has ‘definitely found the one’ in Carl.

Speaking on Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain in her first TV appearance since she narrowly avoided jail last month, Katie declared 2022 to be her year.
She gushed: ‘Babies, marriage, this year I want it all. I’ve definitely found the one in Carl [Woods, her fiancé] and we will get married.’
The star explained that she is keen to marry close to home so her mum Amy can attend.
Amy was diagnosed with Idopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2017. The condition scars the lungs and makes it difficult to breathe – there is currently no cure.
‘It will be in England, because of the family, my mum is terminally ill and can’t travel. So I’d never get married unless my mum was there,’ she told the ITV programme.

Elsewhere in the interview Katie revealed she feels ‘ashamed’ of herself after narrowly avoiding jail last month.
She was handed a 16-week suspended sentence and two-year driving ban for flipping her uninsured BMW X5 into a hedge while disqualified and under the influence on a country lane near her home in West Sussex on September 28.
The mother-of-five insisted that 2022 was going to be a ‘year of no dramas’ and revealed she’s currently doing Dry January (staying sober for the month) to kickstart the year, as she’s ‘not a big drinker anyway’.
Appearing via video link alongside Harvey, she was probed about nearly ending up in jail for her latest arrest, to which she said: ‘The events were really traumatic.

‘It’s been traumatic after, so I’m not ready to talk about it yet. But what I will say is that I went to the Priory and I’ve made the decision finally to see a therapist every week, forever, to deal with the traumatic events that led me to getting into that car.
‘I’m very good at hiding things but when I’m ready to talk about it then I will come on to talk. There’s reasons why I got in that car and my mental state but when I’m ready I will.
‘I feel ashamed about it all. There are reasons that I am still dealing with now. It’s a new year but I’m still dealing with it, people shouldn’t judge people, there’s always reasons for things.’
Katie escaped with a suspended prison sentence because she complied with a requirement to attend the £6,800-a-week rehab centre – despite going out shopping while staying at the facility.
The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant was told by a judge that she deserved to spend Christmas behind bars after committing her ninth motoring offence.
Following her court appearance, Katie released a statement saying she is ‘incredibly sorry’ and ‘sincerely grateful nobody was hurt’.
Drink-driving campaigners said they were ‘gobsmacked’ by the ‘unbelievable’ sentence, but the judge said Katie would avoid going to jail because she completed a stint at celebrity rehab clinic The Priory and stayed out of trouble.
Yet Katie has vowed to move on with her life, and looking ahead to the rest of the year, Katie said on GMB: ‘2022 is my year, 22 is my lucky number. My birthday. The main box on Deal or No Deal. This has to be my year of no dramas.’

It was revealed on Wednesday that Katie’s ex-husband Kieran Hayler is to be quizzed over historic rape allegations relating to another woman after a complaint to the police by the former model.
The 34-year-old voluntarily agreed to be questioned by detectives over three alleged incidents with a woman, known to the couple, in 2016, while they were still married.
The former stripper denies what he describes as ‘false allegations’ and insists he will cooperate with police inquiries to clear his name, The Sun reported.
A spokesperson from Sussex Police said: ‘We are investigating a report that in 2016 a woman was raped by an adult male known to her at a location in West Sussex.

‘No arrest has been made. The woman is receiving support from specially trained officers.’
The claim is said to have been made to police by Ms Price herself, who was married to Mr Hayler from 2013 to 2018.
The couple had two children together in that time – eight-year-old Jett and seven-year-old Bunny.
A spokesman for Mr Hayler told the Sun: ‘Kieran is very saddened by these false allegations, and is happy to fully assist the police and co-operate fully to ensure he is quickly vindicated.
‘But he is keen not to get into a public dispute and would prefer to rectify this matter with the police as quickly and calmly as possible, and continue to focus on his own life and future.’

A source added: ‘Police have been in touch with Kieran regarding an allegation from 2016, which is believed to have been made by Katie.
‘It relates to someone they knew while they were married. Kieran is co-operating and insists he has done nothing wrong — but he’s happy to speak to the cops about it. He just wants to move on from his marriage to Katie.’
It comes after Ms Price’s fiancé Carl Woods was left ‘furious’ when Mr Hayler said she deserved to be locked up after her drink and drug-fuelled car crash.
In an explosive interview Mr Hayler said his ex – who was given a suspended sentence in relation to the incident – needed to be behind bars and that a custodial sentence would send a clear message to their two kids.

Ms Price recently completed her court assigned rehab order following the car accident on September 28, after which she tested positive for alcohol and Class A drug cocaine.
Mr Hayler said of the decision: ‘It is one of the most serious things you can get done for on the road, short of killing someone. It is so serious.
‘Someone will get hurt if Katie is allowed to carry on the way she is. When I saw she had been arrested, I thought, ‘Oh no, not again’. It is just always so much drama. A lot of drama.’
MailOnline then revealed how Mr Woods branded the comments ‘low’ and has accused Mr Hayler of ‘kicking Katie while she’s down’.
A source close to Mr Woods, who was at her side in court, said: ‘He was furious when he saw those comments. Katie knows she behaved terribly and has made a public apology for what she did.
‘Carl questions what kind of man publicly calls for the mother of his children to be banged up. If their paths cross he’ll make clear exactly what he thinks about the way he’s carrying on. He’s kicking her while she’s down and it’s not on.’

Sources close to Mr Hayler say he is keen to move on from his marriage to Ms Price, and last year he took a swipe at his ex-wife after revealing she didn’t reach out to congratulate him on the birth of his new baby boy.
Mr Hayler welcomed son Apollo Phoenix with fiancée Michelle Penticost in the summer and spoke with OK! magazine about their new arrival.
He revealed he’d had no contact from his former partner following the birth, and when asked if Ms Price had sent a present, he scoffed: ‘What do you think?!’
He added: ‘I don’t expect it. She’s got her own life and I’ve got mine. The only thing we share is the children.

‘Maybe I’m too nice, but if she’s happy, I’m happy. I always say congratulations, even when she got engaged to Carl Woods. For me there’s no animosity there. I’m not disappointed, it’s just each to their own.’
The former couple finalised their divorce in March this year, and days later Ms Price became engaged to former Love Island star, Carl Woods.
Over the course of their tumultuous marriage, she accused Mr Hayler of cheating with her best friend of 20 years, Jane Pountney, as well as sleeping with her close pal Chrissy Thomas.
In August 2017, she famously claimed Kieran had cheated on her for a third time with their nanny Nikki Brown, resulting in the breakdown of their union.
