The ‘Loose Women’ panellist became embroiled in a row with Chris earlier this week, when she denied his claims she’d sent him a number of texts, only for him to then prove their existence by publishing them on Twitter.
Katie appeared to allude to the row during her latest ‘An Audience With’ show in Liverpool, when she said (via The Sun): “Some celebrities should be careful with what they say and not ‘out’ people.
“It will come back and bite them on the bum. Do you know what I mean?”
However, Katie’s spokesperson cryptically told HuffPost UK: “Nobody said she was referring to Chris Hughes.”
Chris tweeted the messages he claimed Katie had sent him earlier this week, after she wrote on Twitter: “Met @chrishughes_22 once on Loose Women and with @oliviajade_att at the football. Sorry to disappoint you all no flirty texts got sent!”
“Being pied shouldn’t make you bitter,” he later replied.
Katie later responded, appearing to claim Chris was hiding a number of replies he’d sent her behind girlfriend Olivia Attwood’s back.
“I have a lot on people like people hiding replys to texts! pics, vids! I’m loyal,” she wrote.
Chris has since denied this after being challenged by a number of people on the social networking site.
“I’ve got 14 GCSE’s, a Uni Degree and morals. I ain’t sent shit, hence why all you’ll haven’t seen shit,” he insisted.
Meanwhile, Olivia seems to have been enjoying the row, sharing this telling GIF:
She also defended her boyfriend’s decision to make Katie’s messages to him public, adding: “Ohhh look at all you lot turning on chris for backing himself. Smh.”
HuffPost UK has contacted Chris’s spokesperson for additional comment and is awaiting a response.
