Who is Katie Price’s new boyfriend, JJ?

John Joe Slater, 33, is best known for appearing in Married At First Sight.

He also runs the company Fully Blessed, which has slipped into the red.

Financial documents released in May 2024 revealed the fashion brand has made a loss of £31,006.

Running to the year ending July 31, 2023, he was yet to report a profit and the records show he had no stock.

But JJ plugged the clothing business during his time on reality TV show MAFS.

His girlfriend Katie has been evicted from her home Mucky Mansion after also once again being declared bankrupt in April 2024, owing the taxman £760,000.

Katie was first declared bankrupt in November 2019, with debts of £3.2million.

Despite their money woes, Katie and JJ Slater soaked up the sun in Cyprus — just as a High Court judge warned she could be jailed for contempt.

Reality star JJ has also insisted he is working hard to build his business.

When approached by The Sun, he said: “As all entrepreneurs know starting a new business takes investment.

“It takes courage to invest in yourself and pursue a passion.

“My business partner (Josh Edwards) and I are absolutely committed to following our dreams and building a brand for the people.

“This takes time, investment and a lot of hard work, we really appreciate the exposure in this infant stage of our business… there is plenty more to come!

“We would also like to take this chance to thank everyone that has supported us so far, we will continue to invest to make the best possible products for our amazing customers. Thank you, Fullyblessed.”

Instead of profits, JJ made a loss of £4,040 last year, was £8,216 down in 2022 and made his biggest loss of £18,750 in 2021.

However, he is still employing one member of staff at the Essex based apparel firm.

JJ filed the new figures last week at Companies House, signing them off on April 28.

When did JJ Slater appear on Married at First Sight (aka MAFS)?

JJ shot to fame on series eight of MAFS UK.

He took part in the E4 dating show in 2023, where he tied the knot with Bianca Petronzi, before later finding a connection with Ella Morgan.

But the pair chose to part ways at the altar during the tense final vow renewals.

How long have Katie Price and JJ Slater been dating?

Reports of JJ and Katie dating first appeared in early February 2024.

This came after they were spotted getting close  on a night out together.

At the time a source told The Sun: “They’ve met a few times and are texting each other constantly.

“She’s really into him — this is the first man she’s actually been interested in since Carl.”

They added: “Katie and JJ are very much in the honeymoon stage.

“It’s still early days between them, but Katie had no intention of keeping everyone guessing about their relationship.”
