The Dancing On Ice star began a relationship with former Take Me Out contestant Dan Foden last month, but News of the World now reports that the Warrington-born casanova has secretly been seeing another woman and badmouthing Katona in private.
A friend of Foden's quotes him as saying: "It's all made up rubbish. I've not been s****ing her. I've got this model thing, that's all I want to do. If it f**king gets me where I need to get I will do, won't I?"
In response to the reports, a source linked to Katona told The Mail On Sunday: "While she may have known him for a while she only met up with him a few weeks ago so it is still very early days and it isn't long enough to tell if he is a good or a bad guy yet."
Katona previously insisted that Foden has no "hidden agendas" and is "not interested in the fame game".
