A former page 3 topless model, Katie Price (formerly known as Jordan) has won this year’s edition of the UK Celebrity Big Brother, beating another controversial contestant, Katie Hopkins into second place.
Katie Price’s time as topless female glamour model in a pictorial Page 3 in British tabloid newspaper The Sun shot Price into the limelight.
The Mother-of-five , who has had issues with her recent breast surgery and was allowed to leave the house for a medical consultation, appeared to hold or support her chest as she made her way down the steps towards the cheering crowd.
Katie Price is no stranger to celebrity TV shows, having participated in “I’m a celebrity Get Me Out Of Here”, Jordan: The Truth About Me (2002), Jordan: The Model Mum and Jordan: You Don’t Even Know Me (both 2004), and was followed by Jordan Gets Even on Five in 2004. She later appeared in the documentary Jordan: Living With a Dream (Channel 4) and then launched the Katie & Peter franchise on ITV2 which documented the lives of Price and former husband Peter Andre. This franchise included several fly-on-the-wall reality series which comprised When Jordan Met Peter, Jordan & Peter: Laid Bare and Jordan & Peter: Marriage and Mayhem between 2004 and 2005; Katie & Peter: The Next Chapter, Katie & Peter: The Baby Diaries and Katie & Peter: Unleashed in 2007; Katie & Peter: Down Under and Katie & Peter: African Adventures in 2008; and Katie & Peter: Stateside in 2009.
The recently concluded Celebrity Big Brother series had its fair share of controversies as R and B star Alexander O’Neal, former Coronation Street star Ken Morley and ex-Baywatch actor Jeremy Jackson all left the house in scenarios that were not usual evictions.
O’Neal became the third person to leave the show unexpectedly, following the removal of Morley and Jackson.
After his shock departure, which came on the heels of another heated row with Hilton, O’Neal, 61, said being in the famous house “became unbearable”.
Morley, 72, was evicted from the show for using “unacceptable language” including repeated use of the word “negro”.
Jackson, 34, was booted out after former Page Three girl Chloe Goodman claimed he drunkenly tried to look at her breasts while the pair were alone in the toilet.
Other housemates included Patsy Kensit, Nadia Sawalha, Camila “Cami Li” Figueras, Alicia Douvall and Kavana.
