Katie, 40, was due to collect the children from their dad Peter Andre’s house around midday, but insiders say she didn’t show up until 4pm.
“Katie had been out in Liverpool for a boozy nightclub PA the previous night, and didn’t manage to get back down South in time for the arranged time,” says a source.
“She arrived late and tired.
"It delayed everyone’s day and kept the kids waiting.
“She blamed traffic and says it wasn’t because she slept in that morning.”
Peter’s reps had no comment on the story. Katie’s reps didn’t return a request for comment.
Katie shares Princess and Junior with ex Pete, and in January, she revealed she “didn’t blame” him for taking the kids to live with him and new wife Emily.
After admitting that she’d been ‘self-medicating’ with cocaine and booze last year, Katie told Loose Women: “The kids are back to normal.
"I don’t blame Pete for doing what he did in the beginning.
"My ex told Kieran and said that I was self-medicating and whatever and he acted like what the dad does but there’s more drama behind which I’m not going to go into.”
She added that the arrangement with the kids was “back to normal now.
"It’s exactly the same as it was before, half and half.
"It has been like that for ages.”
Katie is now dating personal trainer Kris Boyson, who she partied with in Liverpool.
