And these are the 10 commandments Kieran must abide by…
1 Be available to babysit all the time We’re told there’s no way Katie will hire another nanny, and as that’s Kieran’s fault, she expects him to be on hand for the kids 24/7.
2 Get the kids ready and take them to school every day When Katie’s not on Loose Women, she likes to sleep in – so Kieran will be in charge of getting their five-strong brood ready and out the door in the mornings.
3 Change his mobile number and his email address Now understands Katie has insisted the only people who can have Kieran’s contact details are her, his family and their joint close friends.
4 Hand control of his Instagram over to a socialmedia manager Kieran doesn’t use Twitter or Facebook, but he did return to Instagram earlier this year. Katie, we’re told, will want regular updates on his online behaviour.
5 Sign a contract agreeing Katie can discuss him in any way on any platform Loose Women, lucrative interviews and her next autobiography – Kieran will have to quite literally sign away his rights to Katie.
6 Be paid an agreed salary For now at least, Katie wants to make it clear that Kieran is an employee, not her lover.
7 Sign another agreement that, upon a possible termination, he will leave the premises The contract will state that Kieran can be ‘let go’ at any time and will have a specific number of days to move out.
8 Carry out all the house maintenance As Kieran doesn’t have a job, Katie will expect him to attend to any DIY that needs taking care of.
9 Build a separate house on their land for Harvey Katie’s spoken in the past about wanting to build a property for disabled son Harvey to live in when he’s older. We’re told she’ll have Kieran construct this and live in it himself until Harvey’s ready – or she forgives him.
10 Build a petting zoo to open next summer They have hundreds of animals and Katie’s always looking for new ways to make money, so opening the grounds to the public is the next logical step for her.
