Katrina Amy Alexandra Alexis Infield (born 22 May 1978), known professionally as Katie Price and previously by the pseudonym Jordan, is an English media personality, model, businesswoman, author, and singer.
Price rose to prominence in 1996 for her glamour modeling work with appearances on Page 3 in British tabloids The Sun and The Daily Star. In 2004, she appeared on the third series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, and the following year she was the runner-up in the search for the UK’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. In 2006, Price released her debut studio album, A Whole New World, in collaboration with Peter Andre. She has starred in her own reality television series, including Jordan (2002-2004), Katie & Peter (2004-2009), Signed by Katie Price (2011), Katie (2009-2012), and Katie Price: My Crazy Life (2019). Price appeared on the ninth series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in 2009, and was the winner of the fifteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother in 2015.
In addition to her media and modeling career, Price has also established herself in the publishing industry, releasing six autobiographies, eleven novels, one fashion book, and two series of children’s books. She was in the top 100 best selling authors of the decade for book sales between 2000 and 2010, with over three million sales.
At a friend’s suggestion, Price had professional photographs taken and decided to pursue a modelling career. The pictures were sent to a modelling agency in London, and in 1996 she appeared, billed as “Jordan”, on Page 3 in the British newspaper The Sun.
As Jordan, Price was famed for her surgically-enhanced breasts. At 19 she had the first in a succession of breast-enhancement surgeries, increasing her natural 32B to a 32FF.
She also regularly appeared in the Daily Star, FHM, the British edition of Playboy, Nuts, Maxim, Loaded, Vogue and Esquire and also ran as a candidate in Stretford and Urmston during the British General Election in 2001. She ended up winning 713 votes, 1.8% of the votes cast. In 2002, she appeared on the September cover of the American edition of Playboy magazine.
Price made cameo appearances as herself in the television dramas Dream Team and Footballers’ Wives in 2004. She also appeared on Top Gear’s “Star in a Reasonably Priced Car” in 2004, completing the lap in one minute and fifty-two seconds.
Early in her career Price appeared on The Big Breakfast, and she was a guest host on the first series of The Friday Night Project. In December 2005, she released an exercise fitness DVD, The Jordan Workout, featuring “The Juice Master” Jason Vale.
Price was a contestant on the third series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, a reality television series where a group of celebrities live together in a jungle environment with few luxuries, between the months of January and February in 2004. It was there that she met Peter Andre, whom she would eventually marry and later divorce. In 2007, with Andre, she hosted the short-lived late-night chat show Katie & Peter: Unleashed. In November 2009, Price made a return visit to I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in its ninth series. Presenters Ant & Dec insinuated during the broadcast that the surprise of Price’s return had been ruined by the media.
She has also been the subject of many reality television series that chronicle her domestic life. This started with a trio of Channel 4 documentaries by film-maker Richard Macer: Jordan: The Truth About Me (2002), Jordan: The Model Mum and Jordan: You Don’t Even Know Me (both 2004), and was followed 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 Andre and included several fly-on-the-wall reality series: 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 pair’s separation in 2009 resulted in their individual shows being recorded: What Katie Did Next continued on ITV2 until 2011.
Price danced with her then-boyfriend Leandro Penna on the Argentine television programme Bailando por un Sueño 2012, a spin-off of Strictly Come Dancing.
In 2015, Price appeared on the fifteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother. She had been previously invited to appear on the show. On 6 February 2015, Price finished as the winner of the series.
