KATIE Price has fallen for former Love Island star Carl Woods and friends say she’s “head over heels” for him.
The pair have known each other for years but were set up by a mutual friend around a month ago, and have been secretly dating ever since.

Carl, 31, is a car dealer from Essex and appeared on Love Island in 2016 as a bombshell on the speed dating task – but didn’t make it into the villa.
“Katie wasn’t looking for love or a serious relationship but just weeks after meeting Carl, she fell head over heels for him,” a source tells The Sun Online.
“She’s surprised how fast they clicked.
“He’s her ideal man, really: he’s got a job and his own money, he’s fit, they have a laugh – and she really fancies him.

“He’s told her he’s not interested in being famous or another ‘Mr Pricey’ – he just wants to be with her.”
Before he entered Love Island in 2016 Carl revealed he owns 30 cars including a lamborghini and described himself as “charming, confident, game, outrageous and irresistible” adding: “Being a Channing Tatum look-a-like is a bonus to say the least.
“I get told I look like him a lot.”
He went on to reveal Katie’s former nemesis Jodie Marsh as his “celeb crush” because “she goes to the same tattooist as me”, adding: “I want a girl that’s able to laugh at herself but equally someone that acts like a girl.
“I don’t want a best mate. A girl that makes the best of herself and is classy. And if she could look like Jodie Marsh that would be amazing”.
