Katherine reveals: ‘I entered into a civil partnership. You broke the story of my childhood love who I am back with now… it’s perfect having a civil partner! 

‘We didn’t have a wedding, I didn’t need to put on a white dress and pretend to be a virgin, that ship has sailed!’

Although it didn’t go exactly to plan as she admits her daughter Violet ended up ‘flipping a table’. 

She adds: ‘It was a tumultuous event. We went to Denmark because that’s the quickest and cheapest. [It was a] lovely day.

‘My daughter didn’t want me to be in a relationship because it had just been the two of us against the world for a really long time… she was not trusting of my decisions.  

‘I knew she’d flip out on the day. But then I know that when she’s 20-years-old we’ll look back and laugh. We laugh about it already.’

Talking about her daughter’s reaction on the day, she continues: ‘Yes, she put Chanel glasses on and moped around Tivoli Gardens but we thought it was funny about an hour after it happened. 

‘She flipped out, genuinely flipped a table… She is happy now though, it worked out. It’s a beautiful thing because she really loves him and it means she trusts me again, I actually made a good decision for once.’

‘I haven’t seen him in 20 years. I’m in an old jumper, he looked like a full blood Hemsworth brother, just hot… I hadn’t seen him in 20 years. 

‘Of course [I recognised him] I’m the one with the whole new face, Jonathan! I really did like him at the time. When we were young, I was deeply in love with him. We were Prom King and Queen.’

Katherine had just returned from Canada after filming a documentary out there and promised her sister she would go for a drink at the local pub.

She revealed how it was fate her path crossed with her ex’s once again when they bumped into each other at the pub in a once-in-a-lifetime chance meeting. 

However, it’s hasn’t been smooth as she joked that her beau was ‘under review’ because her daughter Violet didn’t want them to date. 

She said: ‘I like him but now we need to worry about hiding from my daughter… She didn’t want us dating so we’ll see, he’s under review.’

Katherine joked about being on a manbatical — which is a break from dating men — for 10 years in 2016.

The funny woman also revealed she was OK with not having a boyfriend until reaching the age of 75.    

She previously told Marie Claire in 2016: ‘Well, I’m going to be single for ten years. I’m on a manbatical, [a term] coined by my friend Claire. In ten years, I’ll be the same age as, like, Louise Redknapp, who’s an absolute babe. 

‘And if I don’t have a boyfriend until I’m 75, that’ll be fine. I want to do up the house and I don’t need to get sign-off on wallpaper from anyone – it’s amazing. Are you married?’
