Ronnie and Katia back on?

Ronnie Wood spent the night with ex-girlfriend Katia Ivanova this week.

The Rolling Stones guitarist may have rekindled his romance with the Russian beauty - who split with him in December –after he visited her London home.

Ronnie, 62, arrived wearing a dark coat and a fur lined hat with ear flaps and waited for several minutes outside the apartment before Katia – full name Ekaterina – came to meet him, greeting him with a smile and a kiss before they went inside.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: “Ronnie looked pretty nervous when he showed up at the flat. He was looking around and had to wait quite a while for her to open the door. But Katia was obviously very pleased to see him.”

Recovering alcoholic Ronnie is said to have bombarded Katia, 21, with text messages since their split and begged her to give him another chance – even though they have both been involved with other people since their relationship ended.

Katia flirted and shared a bed with Swedish musician Basshunter – real name Jonas Altberg – on British TV show ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, while Ronnie went on dates with public relations worker Hannah Kamelmacher and, more recently, Brazilian architecture student Ana Araujo – who is said to be heartbroken that Ronnie has got back with Katia.

Another source said: "She'll be devastated. She thought they had a future together. But Ronnie has never stopped loving Katia.”

The couple’s relationship – which caused the guitarist to leave his wife of 23 years, Jo - initially ended after a series of blazing arguments when Ronnie’s drinking got out of hand.
