Katie Price/ Jordan (born Katrina Alexandria Alexis Infield Price, 22.5.1978)
Katie Price, previously known as Jordan, is a glamour model and also has a number of other business interests.
Katie Price: Childhood
Katie Price was born and raised in Brighton. She attended Blatchington Mill Secondary School, which she revisited for a TV programme named 'With A Little Help From My Friends'. She has an older brother, Daniel and a half sister, Sophie.
Katie Price: Life in the Limelight
Katie Price's rise to fame began when she embarked on a modelling career, following a friend's comments that she should have some professional photos taken. She landed a modelling contract and soon started appearing topless on page 3 of The Sun.
Despite her early popularity, Price was unhappy with the size of her breasts and had them surgically enlarged to a D cup from a B.
Katie Price has often expanded on her career to move away from just modelling. In 1998, she auditioned for a role on the US TV series Baywatch. She has also guest-presented The Big Breakfast, as well as playing herself in Dream Team and Footballers' Wives which starred Laila Rouass and Gillian Taylforth.
In 2004, she appeared on I'm A Celebrity.Get Me Out Of Here, the reality show set in a jungle. It was on this show that she met her future husband, Peter Andre. During the show, she also fell out with the former Sex Pistols front man, John Lydon. The show also featured Kerry Katona (who won the show) and Jennie Bond. Price then returned to a new series of the show in 2009 but left the show after one week after continually being selected to do the gruelling 'bushtucker' trials.
A number of documentaries and fly-on-the-wall series have centered on Katie Price (some during her marriage to Peter Andre). Among these series were: Jordan: Living With A Dream, Jordan: The Truth About Me, Jordan: You Don't Even Know Me and Jordan & Peter: Marriage & Mayhem. Following her split from her husband, Katie Price became the subject of another documentary series, What Katie Did Next.
Another money-making project for Katie Price came in December 2005, when she released an exercise fitness DVD entitled The Jordan Workout. The DVD also featured Jason Vale (also known as 'The Juice Master').
Katie Price competed against Gina G, Javine and Andy Scott Lee to become Great Britain's 2005 entry for the Eurovision Song Contest, which was held in the Ukraine that year. In the performance, she wore a bright pink latex catsuit; she was heavily pregnant at the time. She lost out to Javine.
Price also released an album of duets with Peter Andre in 2006. The album, entitled Whole New World, went into the charts at number 20 in the UK.
Katie Price has had three autobiographies published: Being Jordan (2004), which has sold over one million copies; Jordan: A Whole New World, and 2008's Pushed to the Limit. She has also had two novels published in her name - though they were ghostwritten - entitled Angel and Crystal. Another, Sapphire, was published in 2009. In 2006, Katie Price signed a £300,000 deal with Random House publishers to release a series of books, under the heading Katie Price's Perfect Ponies.
Katie Price has been chosen to advertise a number of companies and products, such as Kwik Save, Asda, Argos and Superdrug.
In 2009, Katie Price's wealth was estimated at around £40 million.
Katie Price: Personal Life
Katie Price has been romantically linked with a number of high-profile celebrities and sportsmen, including Teddy Sheringham, Gareth Gates and Dane Bowers. Price fell pregnant when she was dating Bowers but had an abortion when she discovered that he had cheated on her. She has a son, Harvey, by the footballer Dwight Yorke. Harvey was born blind and is also on the autistic spectrum.
She also has two children by Peter Andre. Their son was named Junior Savva Andreas Andre and their daughter was named Princess Tiamii Crystal Esther Andre.
Price and Andre married at Highclere Castle, Hampshire, in 2005. They separated in May 2009.
In July 2009, Katie Price began dating Alex Reid, a cage fighter and former actor. Reid was a contestant on the 2010 series of Celebrity Big Brother, along with Vinnie Jones, Lady Sovereign, and Price's ex, Dane Bowers, amongst others.
Friends have shot down rumours the former model is in too much pain to stay
No sooner has Katie Price stepped into the Celebrity Big Brother house with a whoosh of a fairy dress, an evil scowl to potential rival housemates and a couple of double page splashes in the weekend tabloids, there are rumours that the former glamour girl is about to quit.

With Lindsay Lohan reportedly penning a life story, there a more than a few celebrity autobiographies that we'd rather weren't out there
It has been recently reported that child-actress turned troubled adult, Lindsay Lohan, is thinking about putting pen to paper and revealing all about her 28-years thus far. While wild parties, speeding tickets, alcohol-related offences and time spent in prison are all relatively interesting if written in an amusing way, it's hard to imagine this autobiography will be anything but an extended version of the numerous articles already published about her struggles with fame.
Lindsay Lohan is reportedly set to release a tell-all biography
She is, of course, not the only celebrity that has tried their hand at autobiographies as a way of boosting public interest in a somewhat failing fan base. Here are some celebrity books that we’re not sure we want to read.

Katie Price has announced that she is splitting from allegedly adulterous husband, Kieran Hayler, just days after she discovered she is pregnant.
We hate to say “We told you so,” but when a celeb marries a fame-hungry unknown after just a couple months of dating, it’s bound to end in tears. When Katie Price married part-time stripper Kieran Hayler back in October 2012, and shortly after became pregnant with his child, it was really only a matter of time until something went wrong. We are, however, sad to hear that the news comes while Katie is 6 months pregnant. It’s really the last thing that anyone needs during a pregnancy, particularly when the cause for the split is an alleged affair.
Price announced via Twitter that her marriage to Kieran Hayler is over
Price is claiming that the breakdown of her marriage is due to Hayler allegedly having an affair with her best friend, 49 year old Jane Poutney. The glamour model has taken to Twitter to announce the end of her marriage and shame both Poutney and Hayler. She Tweeted, “Sorry to say me and kieran are divorcing him and my best friend jane poutney been having a full blown sexual affair for 7 months.” She continued, “Jane poutney is 50 next year cloned into me with my help she is a whore, home wrecker slut.”

The Aussie singer and his British girlfriend had their first child together earlier this week
Peter Andre had his wish come true when girlfriend Emily MacDonagh gave birth to a baby girl earlier this week. The Australian celebrity announced that his younger girlfriend was pregnant in July last year, with their first child together being welcomed into the world earlier this month, with no exact date confirmed by the artist yet.
Peter Andre and Emily MacDonagh welcomed their first child together
The 'Mysterious Girl' singer left this statement announcing the news on his official website: "Now that I have had the opportunity to tell Junior & Pringles , we are very happy to announce the safe arrival of our beautiful baby girl:) We are extremely thrilled and mum and bubba are doing fine. We are looking forward to a nice quiet couple of weeks getting to know our baby. Thanks to everyone at Musgrove Park Hospital :)))"

Glamour model turned businesswoman makes bizarre choice of outfit for the launch of her equestrian range
Just when you thought Katie Price had reached the absolute peak of nonsense and ridicule, here she is with her latest outfit. Katie decided that, in order to launch a new range of products in her KP Equestrian range, she really needed to choose an outfit that would suit the mood and be relevant to the occasion. So she dressed up as a giant My Little Pony. We repeat: she dressed up as a giant My Little Pony. To launch a new range of products in her equestrian range.
Katie Price: dressed up as a My Little Pony for her new equestrian range
Sadly (or not), the outfit itself was not one of the items about to go on sale as part of Price’s hugely lucrative range of horsing goods but she seemed strangely proud of her pink, four-legged ensemble. “I didn’t know how it would quite look, but I think it’s quite cute, something different” said Price when asked about the bizarre outfit. Price is known to have been a fan of horse riding for many years and explained to the gathered media that she’s currently into show-jumping but confessed “I don’t really go out much at the moment because I’ve got so much going on but said that she’s riding her new show jumper at home.
Keith Lemon insists Katie Price will never again appear on his hit show Celebrity Juice.
Keith Lemon, aka Leigh Francis, says Katie Price will "never" appear on his ITV2 show Celebrity Juice again after she branded new team captain Kelly Brook a "heifer' - a derogatory term for a large female, also a term for a cow. Keith, 39, told the Reveal magazine, "Katie is never coming back on Celebrity Juice. She was rubbish when she came on here before. She was wooden and didn't relax and thought we were trying to take the p*ss. We were, but that's the point of the show."
Katie, 34, fell out with fellow British model Kelly, 33, after calling her a "heifer" in her Sun column. "You're a heifer, Kelly, but still a hot one," adding, "Every mum should make her daughter look at the recent set of pictures that show Kelly modelling her latest New Look swimwear range.They don't seem to be airbrushed and I'm Flabbergasted to see how big Kelly really is." Price has since apologised for the remarks, though it seems it's too little too late as far as Celebrity Juice goes.
Price has appeared on the comedy panel show twice, once in 2010 when Fearne Cotton was still on the panel, and another time late last year when Keith Lemon congratulated her for being attracted to him for 17 years.
The feud between Katie Price and Kelly Brook has got out of hand. We recommend some valuable advice from Mean Girls.
In the ever wise words of Mean Girls' Ms Norbury: "You all have got to stop calling each other sluts and wh*res. It just makes it OK for guys to call you sluts and wh*res." While Kelly Brook and Katie Price aren't actually calling one another sluts and wh*res Norbury's speech is about re-embracing female solidarity. Indeed, this ridiculous feud between Brook and Price needs to end now.
They have an ex in common which is where some of the animosity lies, but recently their apparent dislike of one another has reached a new level. First, Kelly Brook referred to Price as Magda from There's Something About Mary. Magda is an elderly sun worshipper whose skin has suffered severely through years of abuse and is the original tangerine queen. While you can see why the comparison was made, it's not all that fair to say about a fellow woman.
In retort, Price posted a photo of Brook via Twitter which zoomed in on the model's bare breasts while on holiday in St Barts. Price later apologised for the post, but quickly backtracked and deleted said post within a few hours.
Katie Price and Kieran Hayler have been married a month and are already expecting their first child together
There’s never an end to the headlines in the on-going media circus that is the life of Katie Price. Katie (aka Jordan) just married for the third time and one month down the line, it turns out that she’s pregnant with baby number four. Katie, 34 and new hubby Kieran, 25 are said to be overjoyed about the news, though she admitted to The Sun “The baby wasn’t part of our plan at this stage but anyone who knows me knows I’m not one for sticking to rules and plans.”
Just to recap on Katie Price’s marital and child-birthing history, she first had a son, Harvey, with footballer Dwight Yorke, in 2002. In 2005, she married Peter Andre, after meeting him on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and had two more children with him; Junior Savva Andreas Andre, born 2005 and Princess Tiaamii Crystal Esther Andre, born 2007. After divorcing Andre in 2009, she later married the cage fighter Alex Reid, after less than a year of dating, in February 2010. They separated in 2011. And so on to marriage number three, with Kieran Hayler, a builder and part-time stripper. Price confessed that her mum was a little concerned about the news but insists that Kieran’s good with her three children from previous relationships, especially Harvey, who is blind and suffers with autism.
Katie appears to be taking the news in her stride and even joked about her multiple marriages, saying that she was keeping good company with fellow serial celebrity brides. “It’s only my third one. I did my own Pricey marriage survey and discovered I was in good company. Joan Collins has been married five times, Liz Taylor did eight and Zsa Zsa Gabor nine.” With Kim Kardashian, Fergie and Kate Middleton also all pregnant, it’s going to be one hell of a year for celebrity baby news.

In her Sun newspaper column, Katie Price refers to photos from Kelly Brook's latest photoshoot in Miami for her New Look range of swim wear. "They don't seem to be airbrushed and I'm FLABbergasted to see how big Kelly really is," the surgically enhanced glamour model stated. "Rumour has it she's been hanging out with our mutual ex Danny Cipriani. Knowing him, I guess she's probably been doing a bit of comfort eating. You're a heffer Kelly, but still a hot one." Spell check, anyone?
Naturally, Brook was a little put out by the remarks, but mostly thought negatively of Price for the comments. Speaking at a MIND benefit hosted by Harvey Weinstein on Friday night, she said: "I wasn't angry with what she said, just confused. I definitely don't look like a heifer and it's not something I am going to lose any sleep over. I was only angry because the comments put a dampener on such an amazing trip to Miami to shoot by New Look campaign." (Mirror)

Twitter is a useful tool for celebs; they can talk directly to their fans, creating a brand of their own. Just think how much Justin Bieber's twitter profile is worth with over 34m followers.
But it's also useful to air your contrition for an ill-thought comment to the press. You can let the media resell a story by tweeting the right thing, and that's what Katie Price has done, or at least tried to do, after calling Kelly Brook a 'heifer'. She posted, "I don't think girls read sun col right as I never slagged off bigger girls my sister is bigger and curvy women are sexy and men prefer that," as well as saying, "I was saying she looks bigger than normal which she does but she is still stunning!if I put on weight people say I'm pregnant I cant win." Part of the problem was calling her a heifer, Jordan, no one really likes to be called that.
The comments, written in her Sun column, make unconfortable reading, especially after the fact. "Kelly Brook is a brilliant role model for young girls because of her curvy figure. Every mum should make her daughter look at the recent set of pictures that show Kelly modelling her latest New Look range in Miami." No problem so far, right? "They don't appear to be airbrushed and I'm FLABbergasted to see how big Kelly really is." Oh, right. Well, surely that's the worst of it? "Rumour has it she's been hanging out with our mutual ex Danny Cipriani. Knowing him, I guess she's probably been doing a bit of comfort eating. You're a heifer, Kelly, but still a hot one." Oh, Katie.
