Kerry Katona is said to be dating her ex Ryan Mahoney, despite currently taking part in E4 reality series Celebs Go Dating.
The singer and TV personality, 38, seemed loved up with Ryan at the end of last year, seen all over each other on a romantic trip abroad to the tropics.
Yet it ended abruptly, without any real explanation; and then she signed up for Celebs Go Dating.

Kerry had previously claimed to have signed up for the reality series to ‘find her children a new dad’ and joked she is even prepared to ‘get her t**ts out to find her dream man’.
Kerry is mother to Molly, 16, Lilly-Sue, 14, Heidi, 11, Maxwell, 10, and Dylan, five. She married Westlife’s Brian McFadden in 2002, having her two eldest children with him.
The the couple filed for divorce two years later and officially separated in 2006, after which Kerry found love with Mark Croft and married him in a private ceremony in Gretna Green, shortly before giving birth to their daughter Heidi and then son, Max, in 2008.
After an on-off relationship, Kerry finally called it quits with the taxi driver in 2011.

The E4 show is no stranger to constant off-screen drama, with celebrities from past seasons being accused of ‘faking being single’ for the sake of a TV job.

Love Island’s Olivia Attwood was allegedly romancing with footballer Bradley Dack despite claiming to be single, splitting and just before her stint on the show and getting back together swiftly afterwards.
