The TV personality's financial woes didn't seem to get in the way of her spoiling her five kids as she spent a pocket-burning £4,000 on her brood in a Brighton toy store.
Katie, 40, splurged on so many gifts she even struggled to fit them into her 4×4.
After running out of space in the boot, the former Loose Women star had to resort to squeezing them onto the backseat – though even those gifts looked at risk of spilling out.
The ex glamour model had to enlist her the help of store staff and her assistant as she piled an incredible six trolleys with presents for the kids.
Scooters, doll houses and singing machines were just some of the luxury toys the star splurged on.
Katie was also pictured grappling with rolls upon rolls of wrapping paper as she attempted to load up her pink £75,000 Range Rover.
The outing came just a day after Katie, who borrowed £22k from a pal to swerve being declared bankrupt, returned to her car to find a ticket on the windscreen.
To add to her financial troubles, she also owes a furious garage owner £3,500 after he transformed her Jeep into a Barbie car.
The Sun Online revealed Katie has refused to pay up or answer his calls after failing to uphold her end of the bargain.
On the bright side, Katie, who has had a tough few months after checking into rehab and nearly going bankrupt, can look forward to having all five of her kids this Christmas.
She has worked out an arrangement with the help of her new man Kris Boyson – and is even extending her good cheer to Kieran’s new girlfriend Michelle.
An insider told us: “Katie’s feeling the Christmas spirit and has been talked into inviting Kieran and Michelle around on Christmas Day.
“This new change of heart has been brought about by Kris, who wants them to get on. He’s desperate to play happy families with Kieran and has hated all the drama so far.
“He thinks people should get on for the kids’ sake.”
The Sun Online previously revealed that Kieran had agreed that Jett, five, and four-year-old Bunny could spend the day with her, and Peter confirmed Junior, 13, and 11-year-old Princess would be with their mum.
Since their split in 2009, Pete and Katie have taken turns in celebrating the big day with Princess and Junior – and last year, it was Pete's turn.
