Josie, 33, told New! magazine: “He’s got OCD and just after Christmas, he went mad about too many of my shoes being in the hallway. So I kicked off and said, ‘Well, we’ll go then!’ and he went, ‘Alright!’ and bagged up our stuff. So Reggie and I headed to a hotel.”

The TV star had been dating Terry, 48, since the summer of 2017, and they had baby Reggie in September.

But Josie says it’s now over for good, after she became resentful of her partner.

She said: “I’d never go back now. I need somewhere secure for me and Reg. I never wanted to be a single mother, obviously, but there are things you can’t let go. So I hope I will smash life as a single mummy. Lots of other women do it.

“All that matter is that Reg is alright – and Terry does really care about Reg. But things between us have gone too far now.”

There’s no sign of the reality star’s ex on Instagram, but Josie’s shared plenty of sweet baby shots.

At the weekend, she shared an adorable photo of Reggie in the bath, captioning it: “King Reginald in his @shnuggle bath this morning. Giving it about 4 hours to get out the door as usual 😂😂 #babies #babybathtime #babybath #babybathtub #shnuggle #shnugglebath #babiesofinstagram #babyboy #babyfever.”

Josie – who shot to fame in 2010 as the winner of Big Brother – previously dated fiancé plumber Luke Sanwo, before splitting in February 2017.

She then enjoyed a whirlwind six-week romance with engineer Sam Player.

When she met Terry – who keeps a low profile online – he initially seemed like the man for Josie.

Last year, she insisted: “We’re the perfect match. He was actually my next-door neighbour years ago, so we’ve known each other for years, which is lovely.”

She even added that they’d talked marriage, telling Closer magazine: “The other week, he said to me, ‘I’d love to marry you’ and I was like, ‘Let’s get married then!’ He wants something low-key, but I’d love a massive festival-style wedding.”
