KATIE Price has confirmed she's split from on/off boyfriend Carl Woods – a day after the death of her dog Blade.
The 45-year-old took to Instagram this afternoon and told her followers she is now single, before claiming her late pet could have been killed on purpose.
Revealing plans for a style transformation, she wrote: "Extensions out ready for new transformation literally had so much s**t thrown at me and being single now and now dealing with the suspicions my dog had been killed deliberately so being investigated I need a massive change and move in my life."
Katie and former fiancé Carl were last pictured together in Brighton celebrating her birthday at an Italian restaurant at the end of May.
Earlier that month they were seen together kissing on a beach in Alicante, Spain.
Despite this, Carl recently sparked rumours things had soured between them after failing to wish Katie a 'happy birthday' on social media.
The car salesman's online silence on Katie's special day prompted speculation that they had split once again.
Katie shared a selection of the birthday wishes she received on her Instagram Stories, including one from her daughter Princess, one from her son Junior and one from her sister Sophie.
But notably, there was nothing from 34-year-old Carl on either his or her account.
The former glamour model also ditched her engagement ring during a night out in Spain.

Katie was staying with Carl and her friend Ryan Miri when she made the surprise statement with a bare finger.
Carl was more recently snapped driving Katie – whose licence has been removed – away from her community service in Sussex.
She has been working at a charity shop after being ordered to carry out 170 hours of unpaid work.
Katie was given the punishment for breaching a restraining order after sharing "vile and nasty" messages aimed at her ex-husband's fiancée Michelle Penticost.
She was seen picking a spot on her face in the passenger seat of Carl's car as he drove her back home from her birthday shift at the shop – and once again her ring finger appeared to be bare.
The pair first got together in the summer of 2020 after being introduced by a mutual friend.
Over the course of their relationship, the pair got tattoos of each other's faces on their bodies and were open about wanting marriage and a baby together.
Only last month it was reported Katie was working on a new TV show documenting her surrogacy journey with Carl, and they previously spoke about the possibility of IVF treatment.
Meanwhile, German Shepherd dog Blade's death was confirmed yesterday.
It is the latest pet tragedy for Katie following the deaths of numerous other animals in and around her Sussex home.
She announced the news on Instagram, writing: "Words can’t express the lost of my best friend my protector my absolutely everything who had sadly passed away today I have no words to say how I’m feeling but numb and shocked rip Blade."
Grove Lodge Veterinary Group alerted the public to the incident, writing on its Facebook page: "Unfortunately we have had a large shepherd dog handed into our OOH team last night.
"Found on the A24 near dial post. The dog does not have a microchip, however was wearing a brown Louis Vuitton collar."
The tragedy happened just seven months after another of Katie's dogs, Sharon, was killed on the same road.
A driver picked the Pomeranian off the A24 and took her to Arun Vets in Pulborough, West Sussex, who confirmed the death.
A source close to Katie said it was “rotten luck” that Sharon was hit and Katie was “in bits”.
It followed a litany of five other known deaths — more are alleged — which began in 2017 when one of her horses perished after being struck by a motor.
A year on a delivery driver hit her Alsatian, Queenie, who was gifted to her by ex Kieran hayler on her 38th birthday.
Chameleon Marvin died of a “broken heart” the same year when her kids Princess and Junior went to stay with her ex Peter Andre.
In 2020 a second Alsatian, Sparkle, was hit by a car after escaping onto the same road that claimed blade's life.
Months later, French Bulldog Rolo suffocated.
The family’s nanny sat on the pup after it dozed off under a chair when Katie illegally gave it vet prescription-only cannabis oil.
Katie has also had to give away an out-of-control Alsatian, Bear, for attacking other animals.
Animal lovers started a Change.org petition calling for her to be banned from buying animals.
It claimed several creatures had died from “lack of care” including puppies said to have drowned in a “neglected swimming pool” and a cat one of her dogs “ripped” apart.
The petition claimed: “Animals just go missing in her home never to been seen again.”
