Celebrity Big Brother housemate Katia Ivanova speaks of Ronnie Wood romance
Monday 04 January 2010
Katia Ivanova has revealed how she was "madly in love" with Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood.
The Russian model, who's in the Celebrity Big Brother house, said sparks flew after the couple met in a London bar, where she was working as a waitress.
"I sat next to him with a cigarette and dropped some ash on his trousers; basically I was rude, he was sleazy and we kind of bounced off each other - we talked about art, hugged and did the tango to Bob Marley," she told The Sun.
She recalled their days together: "When he got out (of rehab), I gave up drinking too and we rented a flat together in north London and spent months just madly in love.
"We got a dog and we'd drink hot chocolate by the fire. We'd make up funny little songs together. We'd sing. No two people have ever been so in love."
She continued: "We spoke about getting married... And we talked about babies. We'd mess around and say that if we had a boy we'd call him Ivan Ivanova Wood, and if we had a girl, it could be Holly Wood."
Katia admitted she was happy when Ronnie left wife Jo Wood.
"It was a big confidence boost that he was giving up so much for me," she said. "It was a real compliment, that he really loved me. I didn't feel guilty because their marriage had been on the rocks for years."
