With two failed marriages behind her, Kerry Katona is said to be preparing to walk down the aisle a third time.

The 31-year-old reality star and former Atomic Kitten is so loved up with her new artist and factory worker boyfriend, Steve Alce, 33, that she wants to get hitched, according to reports.

The couple, who started their romance in October, are believed to be planning a Christmas wedding.

A source close to the couple told Now magazine that the mother-of-four was getting a bit carried away planning her big day.

"Kerry and Steve want to celebrate their nuptials over the festive season, even though he hasn't actually popped the question yet," the source said.

"She's been telling friends the venue she wants and her guest list."

The claims follows Katona's revelation last week that she had moved Alce into her Surrey mansion.

She gushed at the time: "I'm so in love with Steve and I'd like to get married. We've discussed it and, as they say, third time lucky."

Katona was previously married to former Westlife star Brian McFadden and taxi driver Mark Croft.

Among her children, Molly, 10, and nine-year-old Lilly-Sue are from her marriage to McFadden, while Croft is the father of Heidi, five, and three-year-old Max .
