"But they’ve got to pay. But my son is too young. I’m really quite funny about that. I don’t like people in my son’s circle."

She added: "It’s hard because if you meet someone, you want to bring them into your life. But I can’t show them my life because I don’t want to put Reg at risk like that."

Asides from her relationship with the father of her child, Terry, Josie's most famous relationship in the public eye was back when she first rose to fame following her stint on Big Brother.

After winning the Channel 4 show back in 2010, the mum-of-one struck up a romance with fellow contestant John James Parton – after flirting intensely throughout their time in the house together.

The two reality stars dated in the outside world – with their relationship even documented in her spin-off show There’s Something About Josie – but it wasn't to be.

Josie and the Australian star – who has since appeared on Love Island over in his home country – parted ways with a bitter break up in 2011.

Elsewhere in her latest interview, Josie also opened up about her desire to have more children.

In September 2018, Josie welcomed little Reggie-James into the world with then-boyfriend Terry – whom she split from later that year.

The star admitted in her chat with OK! that she wished she'd "started earlier" when it comes to having kids and reiterated her desire to perhaps adopt one day in the future.

Last month, Josie first expressed an interest in adopting "so Reg has got a brother or sister" when chatting to Closer magazine.

"I haven't got enough time at the moment but, if everything slows down, I'll definitely do it. There are so many kids in the world who need a good home," she told the publication in December.
