REAL Housewives of Cheshire have signed up their youngest ever star and she’s set to seriously sex up the show.
She might not have age on her side, but Katie is hugely successful already as she owns a popular vaginal rejuvenation treatment clinic in Cheshire.
A show insider said: "Katie is the show's youngest ever housewife, but is set to take the ladies by storm as she replaces Christine.
"Christine has turned down numerous requests to return to the show and now they have found Katie.
“Bosses think she is perfect - she's blonde, fiery and feisty and couldn't care less about what anyone thinks of her.
“They are hoping she will really sex up the show and bring in more viewers.”
Bosses have been scrambling for fresh new faces after some of the ITVBe reality show’s biggest names moved on.
Lauren Brown and Esther Dee also walked away from the programme and, most recently, Debbie Davies left to pursue a TV career in America.

The Sun previously told how producers were keen to talk Christine McGuinness back onto the show.
An insider said: "There's no denying Christine's star has risen dramatically since her last appearance in 2020 - it would be a great storyline if she was to return to the show."
But there seems little to no chance of that, as Christine's husband Paddy McGuinness is said to be over the moon that she ditched the "gossiping" and "going for lunches".
