Katie Price (born Katrina Amy Alexandra Alexis Infield; 22 May 1978), previously known by the pseudonym Jordan, is an English television personality and glamour model.Her time as topless female glamour model in a pictorial Page 3 in British tabloid newspaper The Sun shot Price into the limelight. Her placement in the public spotlight allowed Price to expand into a variety of different industries including television, books, fashion and music.Price has had many highly publicised relationships and has been married three times, to singer Peter Andre (2005–2009), to professional fighter Alex Reid (2010–2011) and to builder and part-time stripper Kieran Hayler (2013–). In April 2012, Price’s net worth was estimated at £45 million.
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 was offered a job at Page 3, a topless female glamour model pictorial in British tabloid newspaper The Sun. She adopted the name Jordan in 1996 and made frequent appearances as a model on both Page Three and in men’s lifestyle magazines.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.Unhappy with her breasts from an early age and despite her family’s objections, she went ahead with the procedure because she felt that, as a glamour model, she did not look “as sexy or as womanly” as other models. She has since had many enhancements, as well as reductions, on her breasts in addition to later having liposuction on her hips and thighs, fat implanted into her lips to boost her pout, and a nose job. She told a reporter, “Some people may be famous for creating a pencil sharpener. I’m famous for my tits.” Price was later barred from Page Three in The Sun with their adoption of a policy to only use “all natural” models.She continued modelling as Jordan nonetheless and 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; her comical election campaign had the slogan “For a Bigger and Betta Future” and promised free breast implants, more nudist beaches, and a ban on parking tickets to her constituents. 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. In October 2003, Price appeared in an advertising campaign for the supermarket chain Kwik Save. To publicise the chain’s promotion to cut the prices of their leading lines in half, Price was sawn in half by magician Peter McCahon.Price continues to model today, though she has dropped the name Jordan and no longer does glamour modelling.
