Katrina Amy Alexandria Alexis Infield (born 22 May 1978), better known as Katie Price, previously known under the pseudonym Jordan, is a British television personality, occasional singer and former glamour model.
Her time at topless female glamour model pictorial Page Three in British tabloid newspaper The Sun instantly shot Price into the limelight. Her placement in the public's spotlight has allowed Price to expand into a variety of different industries including television, books, fashion and music.
Price has experienced many highly-publicised relationships in the eye of the British media and has been married twice, to singer Peter Andre in 2005 and to professional fighter Alex Reid in 2010, both of which dissolved.
Katie Price was born Katrina Amy Alexandria Alexis Infield in Brighton, East Sussex, England to parents Amy (née Charlier) and Ray Infield. In 1982, at the age of four, her parents separated after her father left the family. However, in 1988, her mother married Paul Price, a builder, after which, Price obtained the surname. She has an older brother named Daniel and a maternal half-sister, Sophie, who was born in 1989.
Price attended Blatchington Mill School and although not an academic student, she excelled at sport, swimming for Sussex in regional competitions. During her childhood she also developed a passion for horses and horse-riding. She was molested by a man in a park's bushes at the age of seven. She began modelling as a child, and at the age of 13 modelled for a clothing line. However, unknown to Price, the project's photographer was a convicted paedophile and insisted on shooting her in her underwear.
In July 2010, Price released "Free to Love Again", a non-album single. About the release, she explained: "I'm not a singer, this is just something that I'm doing for fun. It's not like I'm worried about getting a chart position or number one, this is purely for fun. Whether people like it or not, I'm doing it." The single had scare promotion or radio play and was negatively received by contemporary critics. It charted at number sixty on the UK Singles Chart and was only supported by performances on GMTV and at various other London nightclubs. On all occasions, she admitted that she had been lip-synching.
Price released her fifth novel, Paradise, in July 2010.
Giving a personal insight to her life between the start of 2008 and the summer of 2010, Price released her fourth autobiography titled You Only Live Once in October 2010. The book documents her split from Andre and leads up to her marriage to Alex Reid. Price dedicated the autobiography to Andre, amongst other family members and close friends, in the "hope [that he] find the happiness [he has] always been searching for". She also thanks him for taking her on a journey of self-discovery.
Price continues to write a regular advice column in OK! magazine.
In January 2011, it was reported in the Daily Mirror that Price was separating from Reid
