Katie Price has been in the public eye ever since she was a teenager and she loves the spotlight now as much as she did then.
Now aged 43, Katie has been through a lot in her life, from three marriages with five children, becoming bankrupt, to now facing a prison sentence if she’s found guilty of allegedly harassing her ex’s new fiance.
We take a look back on the rollercoaster life of Katie Price through the years.
The Jordan era
Katrina Amy Alexandria Alexis Infield was just 17 when she started out in the showbiz industry.
Known to her family and friends as Katie, the teenager decided to change her name to Jordan and the rest became history.
She was known by that name for many years as she carved out a hugely successful career in the glamour modelling industry.
The reason Katie changed her own moniker, she said previously, was because her mum had a professional job in London and she didn’t want her career to be affected by her glamour modelling.
At the height of her fame as Jordan, Katie gave birth to her first child Harvey with then boyfriend, footballer Dwight Yorke.
Dwight initially denied that he was Harvey’s biological father and demanded a DNA test.
He ended up happily agreeing to put his name on the birth certificate, and even tried to insist that Harvey had his surname.
But Katie raised Harvey, now 19, alone, which hasn’t been easy given the complex needs he has due to his disabilities, which include autism, partial blindness and Prader-Willi Syndrome
Katie continued modelling as Jordan.
In 2017 she admitted that she wanted to get rid of her alter-ego.
She said: “I plan to get rid of Jordan, get rid of Katie Price and start as a new person. I’ll keep the name but I’ll be a brand new person. I’d like to have no dramas in 2018.”
Katie Price is no stranger to going under the knife and has had various procedures carried out over the years.
She’s had over 12 boob jobs, tooth implants, several facelifts, liposuction, a Brazilian bum lift in 2019 and multiple rounds of botox but the model makes no secret about it and has spoken openly about her surgery, even documenting it on her YouTube channel.
Katie met singer Peter Andre when she appeared on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in 2004 and despite having a boyfriend, Scott Sullivan, at the time, the pair became very close on the show.
One year on from leaving the jungle, Peter and Katie tied the knot in a very memorable wedding.
Their fairytale extravaganza took place at Highclere Castle and launched their reality TV show Katie & Peter.
Katie married Peter in a princess-pink wedding dress with a seven-metre train set and sparkly crown, while Peter wore an all-white tuxedo adorned with Swarovski crystals.
Their reality TV show documented the highs and lows of their relationship and the couple went on to have two children together, Junior and Princess.
However, in 2009, they announced that they had split up.
The separation was very bitter and public, with Katie accusing Peter of not approving of her drinking or party lifestyle.
Peter refused to reveal why they split but hinted it was because Katie was unfaithful to him, something she has always strongly denied.
Katie has since had a black cross tattooed over the inking she had of Peter’s name.
One year after her split from Pete, Katie went on to marry MMA fighter Alex Reid, for just one year from 2010 to 2011, before marrying Kieran Hayler from 2012 to 2019, with whom she has two children, Bunny and Jet.
She is currently engaged to Love Island star Carl Woods and has said that they plan on tying the knot.
Bankruptcy and the Mucky Mansion
In 2019, Katie Price was declared bankrupt.
At the height of her career and thanks to a raft of book deals, perfume ranges and clothing lines, Katie was said to be worth more than £40 million.
Earlier this year, it was reported that the star owes a total of £3.2 million and it was claimed she’s not repaying in the manner she’s expected to.
The debt was accrued by her company Jordan Trading Ltd, which was first set up in 2003 and was responsible for her perfume and make-up lines.
Since then, the former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! campmate is believed to have earned £45,000 for her Mucky Mansion show, currently airing on Channel 4.
Katie bought the palatial pile in West Sussex from Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude in 2014 for £2million.
The once stunning 11-bedroom property is nestled in Horsham and was at one time an enviable piece of real estate.
However, in her Channel 4 DIY show, Katie is spurred into action after discovering what her home’s value has plummeted after years of ‘neglect.
In 2019, the mum-of-five discovered that the cesspool in her garden hadn’t been emptied for years.
Then there was the fire in 2020 which ripped through the home causing interior damage.
Caretaker for her home in 2020, Charlie Farthing, backed up the grim image of the reality star’s home.
He said the smell of cat and dog pee was everywhere and that the wind blew through broken windows around the house.
He also claimed the house had piles of dog poo everywhere.
In September 2021 Katie crashed her car and went on to plead guilty for drunk driving and without insurance.
She managed to dodge jail, however, today it was revealed that she is facing a jail term after she allegedly broke the restraining order against her ex-husband Kieran Hayler’s fiancée Michelle Penticost by sending an ‘aggressive’ text.
Sussex Police told the Mirror : “On Friday, January 21, officers arrested a woman on suspicion of breaching a restraining order.
“Katie Price, 43, has since been charged with harassment – breach of a restraining order.
“She will appear at Crawley Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 12 April.”
Kieran’s partner Michelle was granted a five-year restraining order against Katie in 2019.
What is she doing now?
The former glamour model recently brought back an element of Jordan by launching her very own Only Fans account, where she promised fans some raunchy content.
She also announced that she will be touring around the country doing makeup masterclasses and urged her followers to buy tickets.
This week, the mum-of-five flaunted her biggest boob job yet as she continues to holiday in Thailand with her fiance Carl.
