Katie Price, a former glamour model, had hoped to star in the new I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! All-Stars edition. However, it has been called ‘unsuitable.’
Katie Price has been deemed “unsuitable” for the upcoming I’m a Celebrity… All-Stars edition. I have to get out of here! following her ongoing legal battle
The 43-year-old was desperate to get a role on the hit show and even resorted to Instagram to plead with the show’s producers.
“Yes get me in,” she said besides a screenshot of an article about the highly anticipated ITV show.
The series, hosted by famed presenter duo Ant and Dec, will see legendary campmates return to the screen, with filming set to begin later this year in South Africa.
Jordan, the mother of five, had previously appeared on the show in 2004, where she met and married her now ex-husband Peter Andre.
In 2009, she returned to the ninth season of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! but left after only nine days.
She went on to make a fortune through reality shows, sponsorship deals, books, and a slew of other product releases.
Katie’s image, however, is said to be “unsuitable” for the show, and she will not be allowed to join since ITV “cannot be seen to endorse her.”
“There’s no doubt that Katie makes wonderful TV and has been one of the standouts on I’m A Celeb over the years, but she is too much of a liability for the program to put her in the All-Stars edition,” a source told The Sun.
“Ultimately, our show appeals to a wide audience, including many younger viewers, and she isn’t a fit participant for a family show right now.”
“Of course, this could change in the future after a break from all the legal dramas, but for the time being, ITV does not believe it would be acceptable – even though they know she would provide rating gold.”
Katie is due in court on May 25 for a plea and trial preparation hearing after being accused of violating a restraining order and harassing her ex-new husband’s partner.
“On Friday, January 21, police detained a woman on suspicion of breaking a restraining order,” Sussex Police stated in a statement last month.
“Katie Price, 43, was charged with harassment and violating a restraining order.”
