Katie Price has candidly opened up on how her romance with Peter Andre blossomed in the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle.

The 42 year old model, who recently stunned in a makeup free selfie, said her romance with the Mysterious Girl Singer, 47, was a “proper love story” as they fell in love in the jungle in 2004.

Katie admitted she was “fixated” on Peter during a candid interview on I’m A Celebrity A Jungle Story, which aired on Sunday 8 November.

As she looked back on her time in the jungle with Pete, Katie said: “If people can meet you at your worst and still like you then that’s the best scenario.

“It’s like literally 24/7 you’re together.” She confessed: “I was just fixated on Pete. People saw our relationship develop.

“Having Pete there in the jungle did make it easier because you'd fall asleep thinking of him and wake up seeing him there.”

She added: “If you haven't clicked with someone in there I think it's quite hard and lonely.”


Ant and Dec were also seen watching nostalgic clips of Katie and Peter’s time on the jungle.

Ant, 44, said: “People love a love story and it just developed as the series went on.”

As a clip of Katie speaking about Pete in the jungle played, Dec pointed out: “She had a boyfriend, I forgot that!”

Katie, who was already mum to son Harvey, now 18, was dating Scott Sullivan, who is now married to Made in Chelsea original Funda Önal, before she entered the jungle.


The model then added: “It was a proper love story and I think me and Pete are the only ones who had kids come out of it.

“I mean I was 23, I had no idea I would go in the jungle and meet my husband.”

Katie and Peter, who recently shared his shock at daughter Princess' video of herself dancing to controversial song WAP, went on to tie the knot in September 2005.

The pair welcomed two children, Junior, now 15, and Princess, now 13, together.

But, their love story was short-lived as the pair announced they had separated in May 2009, shortly before officially divorcing in September that year.

Peter went on to marry doctor Emily MacDonagh and has two children, Amelia, six, and Theo, four, together.

Katie went on to have two more children, Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, with husband Kieran Hayler before the pair split in 2018.

She is now dating Carl Woods and recently shared hopes to have children with him someday.

Mum-of-five Katie told OK!: “We’re excited about everything; babies and marriage. I’ve even discussed it with my mum and what it will be like.”
