Speaking on Monday's This Morning, Katie told Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that she's going to fly out to Nigeria to find the new addition to her family.

She added that she would have gone last weekend, but was busy with her children.

Opening up about her decision, she said: "I've always wanted to adopt a child. I don't care if they have disabilities or what age they are.

"I feel like I can offer a place."

And when asked why she wasn't adopting a British baby, Katie replied: "It's so hard to adopt over here, like so hard.

"I've looked into it for ages.

“It’s good to be back, I’m feeling in a good place," she said. "Last year I obviously wasn’t but you can’t blame me, so much went on.. So much for a human being to cope with.

"It was a nightmare so I went to the doctors and said I’m not myself. I wouldn’t go horse riding, I just wanted to sleep all the time, I couldn’t turn to anyone. 

"So I went into the Priory, I wasn’t a resident in there, I literally took the kids to school went in there for the day and picked the kids up after.”
