Who is Katie Price, how old is she and what is her net worth?

Mother of five Katie is a 39-year-old glamour model who started her career under the name Jordan on The Sun’s Page 3 back in 1996, aged 17.

She became known quickly for her extensive boob job ops and made the most of her notoriety by cashing in where she could.

Being involved in fashion, television, writing and modelling has seen Katie’s net worth soar to an estimated £40million.

The public got to know the ‘real’ Katie Price when she appeared in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004.

At this moment in time, she decided to ditch her Jordan alter-ego and open up the public to her true self – and the UK fell in love with her.

It was also during her jungle stint that she famously fell in love with her ex-husband Peter Andre, who she went on to marry – selling the pictures in a lucrative magazine deal.

While married, the couple earned their living from numerous publicity shoots, reality shows and endorsement deals.

Their Katie & Peter franchise on ITV2 documented their lives and ultimately the breakdown of their relationship.

After their divorce in 2009, Katie continued making money on her own – launching her brands and writing her children’s books and autobiographies.

Katie has expanded her empire into various fields, and they all earn her readies.

What businesses does Katie own?

Katie is an astute businesswoman, and left conference goers shocked with her insightful business talk at the Festival of Marketing.

In November 2006 Katie launched The Katie Price lingerie Collection, available at Asda, and then a jewellery line with Argos.

She launched a hair care range in 2007 at Superdrug as well as several perfumes such as Stunning, Besotted and Precious Love.

How many books has Katie written?

Katie is a prolific author of both autobiographies and fiction stories- and with each book launch comes a spectacle as she gives them the costume treatment.

She’s released six autobiographies so far:

  • Being Jordan – 2004
  • A Whole New World – 2006
  • Pushed To The Limit – 2008
  • You Only Live Once – 2010
  • Love, Lipstick and Lies – 2013
  • Reborn – 2016

Katie has several children’s books, a fashion book as well as 10 novels to her name in her deal with Random House publishers.

Her ghostwriter Rebecca Farnworth, who co-wrote 14 books under Price’s name, died in 2014.

Farnworth wrote Katie’s first biography, Being Jordan in 2004 which has sold over a million copies worldwide.

Katie is honest about the fact that she doesn’t write the books herself – and says she comes up with the plots and the characters before leaving the typing to someone else.

In 2012 Katie was 46th on the worldwide top 50 most valuable authors ever – with £26.9million in sales.

She now says she plans to write a book on parenting despite admitting her kids are “very feral”.

Is Katie Price going to divorce husband Kieran Hayler?

The Sun revealed how Katie is getting ready to divorce Kieran after she caught him out again after finding intimate emails he sent Nikki Brown.

She said: “I was gutted. For a year I was basically paying her to f*** my husband.”

Heartbroken Katie discovered cheating husband Kieran Hayler had sex with their nanny all over the house — even romping in their children’s bathroom.

Katie said she sobbed and screamed “like a lunatic” as Kieran admitted what has been happening.

Discussing the incident on Loose Women, she added: “It is what it is, and what you’ve read. Years ago I caught Kieran cheating. I paid for therapy to get him help. As far as I knew our marriage and sex life was perfect, our family unit was perfect.”

Kieran’s confession came just months after the pair renewed their vows in a ceremony held in the Maldives.

It was later revealed that facing the prospect of divorce number three, she is taking back Kieran in order to give him one more chance.

While she denied the messages, Chris posted the texts on Twitter with the caption: “Okay sweetheart. Being pied shouldn’t make you bitter.”

He told his fans: “A message from another female who went out her way to get my number from someone, then messaging me, is flirty.”

The reality TV hunk then posted screen shots of the exchange between him and Katie, which were sent while he was happily loved up with Olivia Attwood.

In the first message, 39-year-old Katie told Chris over Instagram: “Hey, so good to meet you yesterday.

“Anyway [here is] my number and would love to go shooting. Obviously this stays private.”

Since the bombshell, Katie has also said she’s received an anonymous message from a friend of Chris’ confirming he’s been “bragging” about texting her.
