The former glamour model and ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ winner joined the panel show at the beginning of this year, though reports recently claimed that Coleen Nolan had been guilty of putting Katie down on the panel, with some viewers even going as far as to call it bullying.
She’s now had her say, during an interview on ‘Good Morning Britain’, insisting that there’s no bad blood between herself and Coleen.
Katie told presenter Kate Garraway: “I get on with everyone, I think it’s just a headline. When they said the other week about Coleen ‘bullying’ me… she doesn’t bully me at all!
“It’s called banter, that’s all it is. You know what it’s like, people take things out of context.”
Coleen previously addressed the reports herself earlier this month, admitting she’d felt really “hurt” to be branded a bully by certain viewers.
Coleen made headlines earlier this year, when she jokingly removed Katie from the panel when her conversation about sex toys got a little too *ahem* ‘Loose’ for a daytime audience.
Despite 15 complaints from viewers over Katie’s explicit comments, Ofcom ultimately ruled that they would not be investigating the incident.
