It's the hard launch we've all been waiting for; Katie Price has gone Instagram official with Married At First Sight star JJ Slater and everyone is OBSESSED.

By everyone we mean mainly us, but also the world of social media has also gone into a frenzy with the confirmation that the MAFS UK 2023 groom is dating the country's most famous glamour model.

Both celebs took to Instagram over the weekend to reveal that they were in fact a couple with Katie going so far as calling JJ 'perfect.'

Sharing a selfie of them hugging, Katie wrote, "They say things happen for a reason, the unexpected happened. Fate. Ticks every box . @johnjoeslater, you have proved to me you are a real gentleman and completely accept me for me ❤️."

The CBB winner also commented on the post that JJ shared - which was an image of them lying in the snow - "Your perfect ❤❤."

We can see past the use of 'your' rather than 'you're' as the whole romance is all rather cute at the moment and JJ's fellow MAFS cast members seem to agree.

Erica Roberts wrote on the post, "You two 🥺🤍" and Brad Skelly adding, "Love this 🔥❤."

Noticeably absent is any comment from JJ's former MAFS lovers, Bianca Petronzi and Ella Morgan. Tasha Jay, however, had plenty to say about the new relationship.

Matched with Bianca during MAFS 2023, JJ knew from the get-go that him and the hair stylist were not meant to be. So much so he ditched her early on and hooked up with a different bride, Ella, with them even returning to the show in a brand spanking new couple.


Alas, that was also NOT to be and they called it a day on their love affair just as the show came to an end. Fast forward to now - 26 February 2024 for you guys reading about this unprecedented relationship in the future - and JJ is loved up with none other than Katie Price.

But how the hell did this duo come to be?

The couple were first spotted together enjoying a night out in Newcastle and later went to watch JJ's fellow MAFS groom Jordan Gayle's boxing match in London.

The gossip that they were dating continued when JJ and Katie enjoyed a meal out in Essex with The Sun reporting that, "Katie has spent time in JJ's hometown in Essex and has already met his friends."

Not only that, the plot thickened when JJ posted pics on his social media which showed him enjoying a skiing trip with Katie, nothing quite confirms a romance like a holiday away.

The Essex lad also shared a photo on his Instagram story and one of the people featured is wearing the exact same purple and pink outfit that Pricey was rocking on the same day. You can't pull the wool over our eyes, guys; it's literally our job to be obsessed with reality TV stars.


Katie previously declared that she was single, after announcing on her podcast, "Let me categorically say again ... I do not have a boyfriend. A boyfriend is when your boyfriend, girlfriend.

"I'm single and I can go and meet who I like, when I like and whoever I want to see with."

But it looks as though she is now very much NOT single and is more than happy that she has bagged herself the 'perfect,' boyfriend.

In the words of Shaughna Philipps, 'congrats hun.'
