Katie Price (born Katie Infield, May 22, 1978), is a British glamour model and television star, commonly known as Jordan. She is renowned for her multiple breast augmentations, and her flamboyant personal life is regularly featured in British tabloids and celebrity-based magazines. Her behaviour and lifestyle are often questioned, and even she describes herself as "famous for being famous". She is considered by some to be Britain's equivalent to Pamela Anderson or Paris Hilton.

Life and career
Born in Newport, Wales, Price grew up in the seaside town of Brighton in Sussex. She took that surname after her mother remarried following the split from her biological father when she was just a child. Price has an older brother called Daniel and a younger sister, Sophie.

Her decision to start modeling came after a friend suggested she have some professional photographs done. The pictures were sent to a modeling agency in London, and to her amazement, the agency invited her into their studios for a photo shoot and to discuss a contract. Within weeks she began appearing on 'Page 3' of the The Sun newspaper (topless modeling). It was at this time that she assumed the name 'Jordan'.

As her career began to blossom, Jordan embarked on several brief relationships with celebrities and sports stars including footballers Teddy Sheringham, and Dwight Yorke, and a more serious relationship with the TV Gladiator 'Ace' (real name Warren Foreman). Despite Jordan's declaration of love for the Gladiator star, the relationship didn't last. Jordan has subsequently attributed the break-up to Warren's severe jealousy of all the male attention she received.

In an attempt to cross over from modeling to acting, Jordan (unsuccessfully) tried out for a part on the television series Baywatch in 1998.

Although she was already a well-established model, with frequent appearances on Page 3 and in men's lifestyle magazines such as Loaded and FHM to her credit, Jordan still had a feeling of insecurity about her breast size, and believed that implants would look better. Friends, photographers whom she worked with, and even her parents were against the idea. Nevertheless, the operation went ahead, and her cup size increased from a B to a D. She has stated that she "always felt that I looked flat-chested when I stood next to other girls on the glamour circuit."

Her choice to "go under the knife" was a definitive factor in her retirement from 'Page 3' topless modeling for The Sun, which had recently decided on a "natural beauty" policy, requiring all its models to be "silicone-free".

Jordan appeared in six volumes of Playboy's Book of Lingerie from 1997 to 1999. In 2002, she was shooting a cover to run in Playboy when Hugh Hefner invited her to spend three weeks at his mansion. She appeared at a number of promotional events for the similarly named Jordan Grand Prix Formula One team during this time, during a period when they were heavily promoting themselves to the youth market.

Jordan's private life, wild behavior and outrageous antics, much of it at European nightclubs, have been extensively detailed by the paparazzi. One of her first public relationships was with the pop singer Dane Bowers, of the boy band Another Level. They ended their relationship while she was pregnant by him, leading her to have an abortion. Their turbulent relationship was regularly played out in the press and Jordan would often be quoted making derogatory comments about Bowers, including a less than flattering account of the size of his 'physical attributes'. Their breakup came whilst Bowers was recording a single with ex-Spice Girl Victoria Beckham. It has since been reported that Jordan blames Beckham for the end of the relationship with Bowers. So began a long-standing feud between Jordan and Beckham, which has also been played out in the British press and continues to this day.

During the June 7th, 2001 British General Election, Jordan ran as a candidate in Stretford and Urmston under her real name using the slogan: 'For a Bigger and Betta Future'. As part of her election campaign, which was intended to bring a little fun into a dull election, she promised free breast implants, increases on nudist beaches, and a ban on parking tickets. In the end, Jordan won 713 votes which equalled 1.8% of the vote.

On May 27, 2002, she gave birth to a baby boy, whom she named Harvey Daniel; choosing the name Harvey after her grandfather, and Daniel after her brother. Harvey's father is the former Manchester United footballer Dwight Yorke, although just as during her previous pregnancy, the relationship ended before the child was born. Jordan has said she intended to have the birth shown live over the Internet, but changed her mind later and decided to keep it private. Harvey was born at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, his birth being induced as he was two weeks overdue. He was found to be blind, having a condition known as septo-optic dysplasia, meaning that his optic nerve hadn't developed correctly.

That same year, Jordan was treated for cancer. She had a leiomyosarcoma on her finger, this being a rare form of malignant tumour which attacks smooth muscle tissue and can spread around the body. She had it removed at Nuffield Hospital.

Despite her health scares, Jordan still managed to keep the British press happy in 2002 with the revelation that she had embarked on a secret sexual relationship with Gareth Gates (the then 17 year old pop-star of Pop Idol fame), whilst she was 4 months pregnant with her son Harvey.

Jordan (now preferring to be known to the public as Katie Price while not modeling) began 2004 by appearing on the reality TV series I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, flirting in the jungle with singer Peter André. This seemed to have resurrected both of their careers. Price's antics in the jungle meant that she was rarely out of the British press at this time. Of particular interest was her revelation that she had embarked on a secret fling with a renowned married footballer behind his wife's back. Although she never revealed the footballer's name it was strongly indicated that the man in question was David Beckham, the husband of her arch-nemesis Victoria. The story sparked a plethora of press speculation and came at a time when David's fidelity had already been called into question by his ex-employee Rebecca Loos.

Price appeared on Top Gear's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car on May 23rd, 2004. She completed the lap in 1:52s. She also made a cameo appearance playing herself in an episode of the television drama series Footballers' Wives.

In February 2005 Price announced that she was 5 months pregnant with Peter André's child.

Under the name Katie Price, she was one of the acts competing for the right to represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, to be held in Ukraine. On 5 March 2005, singing a song titled Not Just Anybody, she came in second place in the pre-selection show Making Your Mind Up, behind Javine. The other contestants were the 1996 UK entrant Gina G, as well as Andy Scott-Lee, and the group Tricolore. She has constantly claimed she has a recording contract though many in the music industry apparently connected with Katie deny this. She also admits the Eurovision was a mistake and is one of few regrets of her current career.

Price gave birth by Caesarean section to her second child, a 5lb 13oz boy named Junior, on 13 June 2005. On September 10, 2005, she married André at Highclere Castle, Hampshire.

Price claims that she soon will be retiring her Jordan image. In May 2004, she published her autobiography, Being Jordan, to surprisingly positive reviews, and it became a massive bestseller. Jordan: A Whole New World, her second autobiography, was released January 2006 and is currently rising up the bestseller charts. Her first autobiography has sold 500,000 copies so far, while the second sold 300,000 within just the first 6 weeks of its release.

In summer 2006 she announced she was planning to flaunt her talents across the Atlantic and appeared on USA TV channel E!. She was only given a controversial five minutes of interviewing time and faced mixed reactions from American audiences. She also apparently well known in Dubai and Eygpt.

In July 2006, it was announced that she had suffered a miscarriage - she was three and a half months pregnant. Credit: Wikipedia
