Katie will reportedly host her own segment every two weeks or twice a week.

It comes after Katie was said to have impressed Channel 4 bosses when she appeared on Steph’s Packed Lunch back in January to discuss her documentary Harvey and Me.

A source told the Daily Star: ‘Katie went down a storm with bosses during her appearance on the show last month and producers are looking to make her a regular on the show.

‘Meetings are ongoing but after the success of her BBC documentary Harvey and Me, she’s keen to show there’s more to her than her glamour model past. 

‘She will be covering a string of serious issues that are close to her heart – almost in a roving reporter style position.’

The insider added that Katie could appear on the show, hosted by Steph McGovern, anywhere from twice a week to once every two weeks.

Katie emotionally spoke about the difficulties of raising Harvey during her appearance on the show as she discussed her documentary.

She said: ‘Sometimes I wish that he would go before me because he wouldn’t be able to cope if I wasn’t there.

‘I know that’s harsh to say but I know a lot of people in my situation would feel the same.

‘Obviously I don’t want him to go but he so relies on me in every way and our communication. If I’d gone he wouldn’t understand where I’d gone.’

A source told The Sun: ‘Katie has agreed to a second instalment, which will follow Harvey’s journey as he starts residential college. They’re already in talks about what they’ll film and plan to start in summer.’

A spokesperson for Katie confirmed in a statement: ‘I can say with confidence there will be a part two of this wonderful documentary.

‘Katie has been inundated with requests for a follow up to cover the next steps in Harvey’s transition.’
