In the caption, she wrote: "We survived @atlantisthepalm Rapids even with Belle as the driver!!!!!"

The TV presenter, who shares three-year-old daughter Belle with her partner, recently opened up about her happy marriage. Speaking at the Ideal Home Show at Olympia London on Friday, Katie confessed it was down to putting on weight. Dressed in her bridal gown, she told MailOnline: "I thought, 'It will be fine, it'll look great for this show.' But I went to put it on last night and it didn't really do up. My husband was trying to do it up last night and he said, 'This is the sign of a happy marriage, you've put on weight, that's a good thing.'"

In November, Katie and carpenter Richard celebrated their first anniversary as husband and wife. When asked if she would like another child soon, the star remarked: "I keep seeing babies all the time and it's that realisation that Belle is not a baby anymore. She's a person who Facetimes me and talks to me and she's out of nappies. I keep seeing babies and missing it. I'm a little bit broody, because she's three so it's that new stage now."

Although Katie and her partner prefer to keep their romance out of the spotlight, the mother-of-one previously opened up about their wedding day. "I'm the only person in my family who works in the TV industry and it was hard to explain to relatives, 'Please don't write about it on Facebook'," she told the Sunday People last year. "It was also hard on some of the people who provided services for the wedding as, understandably, they wanted to put it on their websites."
