'Back in December!' Katie Price announces return to Loose Women after taking a break from the public eye to focus on her marriage... as she hits the town on a night out

She announced her break from the spotlight in October after painful memories of her husband's infidelity surfaced during her book tour.

And the mother-of-five, 38, looked in good spirits as she enjoyed a night out in London following the announcement.

She's back! Katie Price revealed her return to the public eye after just a month, in an Instagram post on Wednesday

'Back on Loose women 2 December woooo x', Katie announced on the social network alongside a picture of her Katie Price and Philosophy – The School of Life event in London.

And following the event she enjoyed a night out at three different clubs, as well as making an appearance at Love Island star Olivia Buckland's clothing launch party.

Dressed in a bardot thigh-skimming white dress with black lace edge, Katie showed off a glimpse of tanned thigh teaming it with over-the-knee boots. 

Return to the panel: The mother-of-five, 38, announced she would be back on the panel on December 2nd

Putting on a very busty display, Katie wore her blonde hair in two half French braids, before letting her hair loose later in the night.

Accentuating her green eyes with statement lashes and adding a touch of bronzer, she looked back to  her old self. 

And she ensured she made the most of her night off, visiting Vanilla, DSTRKT and Cirque le Soir.

Swap your LBD for Katie's white dress by Comino Couture

Katie Price looked her usual glamorous self when she was spotted out in London last night.

She has never exactly been one for sticking to a classic little black dress anyway, but this time she mixed things up by teaming a white off the shoulder number with a pair of the over the knee boots.

Check out the textured fabric and contrast floral lace trim on this dress, which you can buy now by clicking the link (right). It's from Comino Couture, a label whose famous fans include Vicky Pattison, Olivia Buckland and Denise Van Outen. In fact, Megan McKenna has already worn this exact dress!

We love the flattering skater skirt, but our favourite thing about this dress has got to be the off the shoulder style. So if you fancy recreating Katie's look, we've found four alternatives that would be perfect to wear this party season. Team Boohoo's monochrome version with barely there heels to let the dress do all the talking.

In October Katie revealed she would use the time out to see a therapist with Kieran Hayler, 29.

And the duo enjoyed their time out of the limelight, treating themselves to a holiday in Barbados where they originally exchanged vows. 

The break came after Katie's promotion of book Reborn whipped up painful memories of rockier times in their marriage.

Downtime: During an appearance on ITV's Loose Women last month, the former glamour model announced that she would be taking a month-long break from the limelight to heal her reopened wounds

During an appearance on ITV's Loose Women last month, the former glamour model announced that she would be taking a month-long break from the limelight to heal her reopened wounds - which she would deal with during couples therapy sessions.

At the time Katie revealed that speaking so candidly about her husband Kieran Hayler's affairs with two of her best friends took its toll.

She explained: 'We're gonna go back to a therapist, not because there's anything wrong with our relationship... He's realised now I've moved on, how much he's hurt me. It's a lot for him to deal with.

Reliving things: At the time Katie revealed that speaking so candidly about her husband Kieran Hayler's affairs with two of her best friends took its toll

Heartbroken: Katie broke Kieran's heart when he cheated on her with two of her best friends

'Everything, all in my life, I've never really sat down and spoken about it (with a therapist).'

She added: 'We had therapy at the time (of Kieran's cheating) and I thought I was over it... The past two weeks, I've been back on my book tour, it's reopened new wounds. I've had to talk about it.'  

However, while she insisted multiple times throughout the show's broadcast that she and Kieran are not splitting, she did mistakenly refer to him as ex-husband Peter Andre. 

After her initial announcement of taking a break, Kieran sent a video message from his phone, in which he said: 'Hi babes, I love you and I'm so proud of you and I'm going to support you through everything. I love you.'

Katie jokingly fired back: 'You're the one who did the damage!'

Oops! During her time on the show, Katie mistakenly referred to Kieran as her ex Peter Andre

Testing times: Katie explained that speaking about her husband's cheating so extensively two-and-a-half years later has tested her and her spouse emotionally

When asked by her co-hosts if she'll ever forgive him, she said: 'I'll never forgive him. Never forget... But I wanna clarify me and Kieran - oops, I almost said Pete then - are absolutely fine. It's just been hard emotionally for both of us.' 

She also confessed that her move to expand her boobs to a new bra-busting size - much like her old alter ego Jordan - was likely because of insecurities. 

The mother-of-five said: 'The boobs had nothing to do with what's happened with the book. I will admit people see me going out in more skimpy stuff.

Demure: Katie displayed her slimline physique in a comparably demure ensemble

'When I met Kieran, my body was small and normal and then I had two babies back-to-back and gained weight... The two women he had affairs with were smaller... Now I'm back to where I was and maybe it's like, 'Now I'm back to where you want me.' 

'I am insecure. I am vulnerable. It's kind of a relief for me to admit I'm not as strong as people think. I have to put a barrier up. But enough's enough now.

'I'm not disappearing for ages, just a few weeks... We're just going away on a belated honeymoon, just me and Kieran and the kids and enjoy some horses.

'I want to help Kieran through this as well, because it's tough for us both... I do trust him, but because of all this book stuff there's turbulence.'

Squad: She spoke candidly with panellists (l-r) Kaye Adams, Linda Robson and Nadia Sawalha

Sympathetic: She received support from the Loose Women team as she shared the news

Let's hug it out: The mother-of-five later shared a hug with Linda, who called her a 'great mum'

The first moment that she realised how gruelling it might be to relive the trauma was when her legal team advised her to read through her book and she couldn't face it.  

'It's just something I don't want to relive again,' she said. 'It's just absolutely awful, torture.'

She also explained that she got through many of her past pains by putting up a defence mechanism.

'If I'm hurt, I try and answer it in a jokey-bantery way to look like I can handle it... I haven't got any tears to cry. My heart is shattered.'

Rude boy: She also took the opportunity to shoot down rumours of an affair with Scotty T

Just friends: Despite rumours to the contrary, Katie insisted that she and Scotty are just friends

But she's also been feeling sorry for Kieran - despite the damage of his past actions.

'It's also been hard for Kieran,' she said. 'He's changed in two-and-a-half years... I've had to relive it with a fresh mind and go, 'Oh my god, this is what he did to me.''

Kieran's indiscretions stayed close to Katie's mind, as later on in the show, when Anne Diamond came on as a guest, she made further confessions when the TV veteran spoke about being cheated on.

'Sometimes, it crosses my mind that I want to hurt him back,' said Katie of Kieran. 'Sometimes, I just want him to feel the pain that I had.'

Feeling sorry: Despite Kieran's cheating, Katie said that she feels terribly for her husband

Raunch: Katie also apologised for her recent return to wild public behaviour and raunchy attire

During the show, she also took some time to shoot down rumours that she'd had a fling with Scotty T.

'This has dragged on,' she said, looking exasperated as she explained that the Geordie Shore star had taken her and a friend to a sunbed.

She recalled: 'Afterwards he asked if he could come and change in my room because he had a event to get to in Blackpool. While he was in there I was just getting my hair done and that's it. We're just friends.

Warning: During the show, Nadia revealed that she'd advised Katie against going on the tour

Chaos: She also pointed out Katie's string of chaotic relationships since her split with Peter

'We had people in room. I shouldn't have to justify myself. I'm married. I'm not gonna do that.'

Katie's fellow panellists also asked if Kieran trusted her, to which she answered: 'I feel like he might wonder if I'll go and do something because of all the book stuff.'

Directing her apologies to the public about her recent antics, she said: 'I'm sorry if I offended anyone with my pictures and behaviour. But I'm human... I don't wanna talk about the past anymore. I just need to move on.'

She added: 'It took me 23 years to admit that I am vulnerable and I do have insecurities... I'm self-destructive sometimes, but I'm human.'

Opening up: She revealed that this will be the first time she candidly talks through her issues

Having a laugh: Katie admitted that she'd previously joked her way out of serious discussion

Despite her efforts to save their marriage, Katie appeared remarkably considerate of his possible future should they ever break up.

Speaking later in the show about vasectomies, she admitted that she wouldn't want him to go through with the procedure, just in case he wanted children with somebody else.

Katie said: 'Once we've had all our kids I'd be happy to do it. But I don't think I'd want him to. You don't know what's going to happen...

'What if we split and he met someone and wanted to reverse his vasectomy and I went off and had a baby with somebody else? It would kill him.'

Proud parents: The couple welcomed two children together in quick succession, bringing Katie's total number of offspring to five
