Katie, 42, films from the passenger seat for her Instagram Stories as Carl drives through a McDonald’s Drive Thru.
The former glamour model asks Carl what he wants to get, before the two of them settle on healthy options.
And in Carl’s hand he can be seen holding his phone.
The car is stationary for most of the video, until Carl drives slowly forward as the queue shortens.
When contacted for comment by Mirror Online, Carl’s rep said: “Carl was unaware that despite being on private land whilst holding his phone he was breaking any regulations.
“Carl was using the McDonald’s app to complete his order in the most Covid-safe way possible.”
Katie and Carl have been going strong together since they first struck up a romance after the first lockdown.
Carl’s now moved into Katie’s bubble for the second one, becoming a hit with her kids and even earning a thumbs-up from her exes Peter Andre and Kieran Hayler.
And they took their relationship to the next level before lockdown 2.0, making the trip to the Maldives for a “baby-making” getaway.
They made their relationship public back in July amid a swirl of fan speculation, Katie branding the hunky Love Islander the “best on earth.”
The couple had been snapped piling on the PDA as they shared a kiss in the street, before a pal filled them looking cosy at a popular celeb haunt in Essex.
Their relationship has also faced a serious test early on, after a nasty holiday accident saw doctors tell Katie she wouldn’t be walking for two years.
But in a miraculous display, recent snaps saw her walking on both feet.
She’d been making do with a wheelchair and mobility scooter – decorated with a “K WOODS” numberplate – with Carl always on hand to help her out.
Katie previously explained that she’s tried to vault a wall during a family getaway to Turkey – not realising there was a steep drop on the other side.
Carl’s also pledged to Katie that she’ll never have cause to doubt his loyalty.
