Life, Interrupted with Simon Thomas
Monday, 30 August
This epsiode of Life Interrupted with Katie Price, was recorded in April 2021.
Katie Price, known for many years as Jordan, her picture hung on many a bedroom wall and covering the front of tabloids and magazines.
But the Katie Price you think you know, is very different in reality.
Although she began her career courting fame and publicity; famously she ended up marrying Peter Andre after they fell in love on ITV's "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here", she has longed for her side of the story to be heard.
Katie has felt for a long time that the media portrayal of her is unfair.
In this honest chat, I discovered that instead of the hard and cold person the media sometimes paint her as, she's actually a very sensitive and caring person, not least for her son Harvey, who has Prader-Willi Syndrome.
Behind the scenes is a lady who has endured years of her own battles with trauma and mental illness.
Katie's story is colorful, and at times desperately sad, but her humour and hope for the future shine throughout.
