Katie Price is set to star in Celebs Go Dating, E4’s cult series helping famous faces find love… despite her current status with on-off lover Kris Boyson unclear.
The former glamour model – who is battling bankruptcy and has spent time in rehab after being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is said to be on a wish list for producers of the reality TV show.
A source told The Sun Online: “Katie has been in for meetings with the show bookers and is really excited about appearing on the show.
“It’s not a done deal yet, but she’s a massive fan of the show, so would love to appear and went after a place in the line-up after seeing this year’s series.
“She’s telling everyone that the Pricey is back and being on this huge show just proves she’s back on top.
“Plus, the pay cheque from taking part would come in handy with her bankruptcy battle.”
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Katie will star in a new two-part special of her reality series My Crazy Life – after admitting she “really hit rock bottom”.
The 40-year-old star is determined to get her “life back on track”, and wants to tell her side of the story in two new episodes.
She said in a statement: “Things have really hit rock bottom since the last series of My Crazy Life a few months ago. But the only way is up.
“It’s time to get my life back on track and be the best mum in the world for my kids. I’m excited to get back to doing what I love and to tell my side of the story.”
Katie’s first special episode, which is still being filmed, will air on November 12 on Quest Red, and a second episode will air in December.
Clare Laycock, head of channels at Quest Red, TLC and ID, said: “Katie Price: My Crazy Life really captured the hearts of audiences and I’m delighted to welcome her back to the channel.
“This series we’re all rooting for Katie as she confronts some home truths and takes control – expect more challenges and heart-warming moments from one of the UK’s most talked-about mums.”
In October, Katie was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving, and one month earlier she checked into rehab after being diagnosed with PTSD following a consultation with experts at The Priory as she struggled to deal with her mother Amy’s diagnosis with a terminal lung condition, and the breakdown of her marriage to Kieran Hayler.
Katie – who has son Harvey, 16, with former boyfriend Dwight Yorke; Junior, 13, and 11-year-old Princess with ex Peter Andre; and Jett, five, and four-year-old Bunny with Kieran – is expected to discuss her difficult summer in the two special episodes.
