Katie Price has denied reports that she has been offered a “substantial fee” to appear in the Australian version of Big Brother this summer.
The former glamor mode, who beat Katie Hopkins and Calum Best in 2015 to win the British version of Celebrity Big Brother, will not appear on the show.
A spokesperson for Katie told MailOnline: “I can confirm that no such talks or talks have been entered into with CCB OZ and Katie to appear on the programme.”
Lucrative: Katie Price has denied reports that she has been offered a “substantial fee” to appear in the Australian version of Big Brother this summer.
The denial comes after reports that Katie was planning to travel down after she was named as a favorite to appear on the show.
A source told the Daily Star: ‘Katie is very popular in Australia. When she’s on The Morning Show, she’s always trendsetting.
“There’s real excitement about her – producers watched her on the UK version and knew right away that she was going to be a hit with Australian viewers.”
“The producers watched her on the UK version and knew right away that she was going to be a hit with Australian viewers.”

Katie famously sat in disbelief when she won the 2015 British series Celebrity Big Brother.
‘What is going on? “I don’t understand,” she said when the results were announced.
Her shock came after she felt she had been “boring” during her three-week stay on the show.
She explained: “I went in with a medical problem, so I’ve been on antibiotics and painkillers – I haven’t been myself,
‘I’ve been boring. I really don’t know why I’m here,” she added.
And it’s this British self-deprecation that Australian execs could make her popular on the show’s down under edition.
The source explained that they think Katie’s down-to-earth side may be why she’s a hit with viewers.
Katie is reportedly the favorite among a range of other British names. MailOnline has reached out to Katie’s representatives for comment.

The reportedly lucrative proposal comes after Katie returned to court last month to discuss her £3.2m bankruptcy debt.
It is said that Katie is under pressure to repay the debt she owes after failing to attend the meetings about it.
The former glamor model was declared bankrupt in 2019, pledging to repay £12,000 a month through an individual voluntary scheme, but this is now reportedly set to be reviewed in her upcoming lawsuit.

A source that speaks with The sun claimed: ‘Katie is coming back next month – the debt is huge and she’s unlikely to be able to pay it all back.’
Katie is reportedly owed the huge amount from her company Jordan Trading Ltd, and the source added: “She hopes the court understands why things have gone so slowly.”
It was reported last month that liquidators say Katie’s ‘non-compliance’ means they cannot fire her and claim a loan of £154,423 to help settle creditor claims totaling £267,769.

At that moment, The sun claimed that a report published by the liquidating company Moorfields said: ‘I have been in bankruptcy correspondence with the director’s trustee to determine whether dividends may be paid to the director’s creditors in the future.
“The director failed to attend the trustee on several occasions and subsequently the director’s dismissal was suspended for non-cooperation.
“We have been informed that creditors in the estate now total approximately £3.265 million.”

A Katie representative told MailOnline at the time: “Katie continues to work closely with her trustees and creditors to resolve the terms of her bankruptcy.
‘She remains committed to a positive outcome for all involved.’
According to documents filed under Companies House, Katie is still listed as the organization’s director after her brother Daniel Infield resigned as secretary in 2015.
Jordan Trading Ltd was founded in 2003 by Katie to oversee the star’s perfume and makeup lines, but in 2017 it filed to wind up the business as Katie tried to get her finances in order.
Where’s the money? The liquidators are thought to say Katie’s ‘non-compliance’ means they cannot fire her and claim a £154,423 loan that is unlikely to be repaid
The reality star, who was once worth more than £45 million, was declared bankrupt in 2019 after the Supreme Court found she had failed to comply with a plan to repay her debts, estimated at £800,000.
She was forced to give up her £2 million 11-bedroom mansion a month later after transferring the property to a trustee.
Katie took out a second mortgage on the property in 2015, but faced monthly payments of £12,300, and is now thought to be £100,000 in arrears.
The price is correct! In February, a destitute Katie also revealed that she was selling some of her furniture on Depop, including her fiancé Carl’s old dining room set for up to £1,500
