Speaking ahead of the pair’s upcoming appearance at Shaka Zulu in Camden, London, on Thursday for the club's 10th anniversary bash, a pal told the Sun Online: “Carl prefers to lead a quiet life so is really nervous about this first public appearance.
“There’s no way he will be letting Katie down because he knows how important, after all that’s happened , that this is for Katie.
“It’s her chance to show everyone that despite her feet injury and all the problems that have come afterwards, both mentally and physically that she is still here and still going and still working.
“Katie loves the fact Carl doesn’t court the cameras.
“In the past some of the fellas preferred the events even more than she did.
“When Katie steps out with Carl she knows she will have a real man at her side. And she’s certainly looking forward to showing him off.”
It will be an unusual night for Katie, 42, as it will be the first time she's required a scooter to travel down the red carpet.
The former glamour model was gifted a hot pink custom scooter after breaking both her feet in a horrific accident while on holiday in Turkey.
She also has a £10,000 wheelchair encrusted with 6,000 Swarovski crystals that she could use for the glamorous event.
The vehicle has given her the freedom to get around and be independent following her driving ban.
Katie was slapped with two-year driving ban in October last year after crashing her £130,000 pink Range Rover in 2018.
But she plans to zip around her local area in Surrey, telling The Sun: "I won't be breaking any speed limits on this – that's for sure."
Katie opened up to The Sun about the horrifying moment she vaulted a small wall on holiday – only to fall 25ft and smash both her feet.
In her first interview since the accident in Turkey in July, the former glamour model said she feared she would never walk again. Now she is in The Priory because of the trauma.
Katie, 42, was at a theme park with new boyfriend Carl and her children Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, when the accident happened. She had had a few drinks and was larking around.
Katie says: “I’m never ever drinking again and I wasn’t even that p***ed.
“We were just all mucking about. It was just a small wall which had flowers on top and I thought it was the same height the other side — but it was a 25ft drop.
“Then this pain just hit my legs and I’m screaming, ‘My legs! My legs!’
“Then when the ambulance crew were trying to put me on the stretcher and touched my legs it was horrific pain.
“I remember at the hospital looking down at my feet and they were sort of all bent. I can’t remember too much after that because of the shock."
