The Loose women star has had a lot to say recently, but perhaps a comment a little less bizarre but a little more shocking is that she also thinks she’s boring on Loose Women.
The former glamour model may well be idolised by millions of people, but she has nonetheless admitted that her private life also is actually quite dull.
Mum-of-five Katie, 39, speaking at this week’s National TV Awards, said: “I don’t go out any more. It has nothing to do with having kids and being a mum.
“I just can’t be bothered talking boring s*** to the same old people. I’m just bored with it all.” She added: “I think I’m boring on Loose Women.”
At the same ceremony, reality star Gemma Collins, 36, also accused the long-running ITV lunchtime show of being, in the words of Chandler Bing, a big dull dud. In a damning statement, that I doubt will have more life than the here and now, Gemma also said that Katie was “crass”.
The TOWIE star went on: “I find it boring. It needs some glitz and glamour. When it comes on I turn it off. For my generation and people my age it’s f***ing boring. They need to revamp it.
“I like Katie Price and I wouldn’t say a bad word about her but she’s a bit crass she needs to tone it down a bit.”
Gemma Collins, who is a regular on ITV’s The Only Way is Essex, made the scathing comments about former glamour model Katie Price just after she had embraced the mum of five in the ITV box at London’s O2 Arena.
Loose Women lost out to This Morning in the Daytime TV category at the National Television Awards.
And Katie, who is divorcing third husband Kieran Hayler, 30, had an awkward moment when she bumped into Love Island ’s Chris Hughes at the ceremony.
She and Chris, 25, had a spat last year over flirty texts.
Katie said: “I went up to Chris on the red carpet and said, ‘Well, this is awkward.’ He didn’t know what to say. I don’t give a s***. I know the truth.”
It’s been a bizarre week for Katie Price that was capped off when she addressed Cambridge University and compared herself to Only Fools and Horses’ Del Boy Trotter.
The 39 year old spoke to the audience and said: “It’s so easy to be a celeb for nothing but it’s about working social media. I’m shrewd – like Del Boy.”
Katie made the unusual comments during a Cambridge Union debate last week, when she was pitting her wits against former Strictly Come Dancing star and Radio 4 host Reverend Richard Coles.
And then, as delicately as a bull trying to navigate a shop of exploding china, she added: “I think religion is a load of bulls***t.
“I never discuss politics or religion as you will never win.”
Katie also admitted that her recent cosmetic facial operation had gone wrong, and that she was making a return visit to a surgeon next week in Cambridge to fix the problem.
Katie Price had a face lift last year, which was designed to lift sagging cheeks and her jawline.
She also visited a cosmetic surgery clinic in Turkey for dental work but shocked fans during a red carpet appearance soon after, when an allergic reaction to penicillin made her face swell up.
Chris Hughes also made the news recently but not for reasons that I imagine he would like, after he received a huge amount of backlash for a “hugely disrespectful” joke that he made at the expense of Sir David Jason at the plush TV event last week.
Former Love Island contestant Chris Hughes has faced a backlash on Social Media after making a crude joke about national treasure Sir David Jason this week. The reality star claimed that the actor was aiming to get a glimpse up girlfriend Olivia Atwood’s dress at the National Television Awards.
Chris hit headlines after posting a photo to his Instagram page, which shows himself holding up Olivia’s gown to avoid tripping, while Jason who is sitting in the background, happens to be glaring in their direction. It appears to be a seemingly innocent photograph, however, Chris went on to caption the photo: “When Sir David Jason asked me to lift it a bit higher…” and tagged Olivia in the post.
His comment certainly seems to be insinuating that Jason – who was knighted in 2005 – had intentions to look up his girlfriend’s dress. He may well have intended it to have been a joke, but others have since commented that the gaffe is highly inappropriate in light of the Weinstein sex scandals which were brought to media attention last year.
Fans of the legendary actor were far from impressed by Chris’ slightly sense of humour, with many branding the ‘joke’ as ‘disrespectful’:
“Seriously Sir David Jason is an absolute legend! And Chris is famous for what?! I don’t even know who he is. well actually that’s not true, I now know he’s a total b******. #getoveryourself” one angry Twitter user wrote.
While another user agreed: “Utter idiot had the bloody cheek to have a go at Sir David Jason who is f****** a billion more than you inbreds put together.”
Chris and Olivia attended to National Television Awards together, evening alongside fellow 2017 Love Island stars Amber Davies and Kem Cetinay.
Although Kem and Amber won the series last summer, the pair split up at the end of last year. The pair were spotted sitting next to one another at the start of the ceremony, but following an advert break, they seemed to have swapped seats.
This move didn’t go unnoticed by eagle-eyed viewers who took to Twitter to comment on the matter:
One user wrote: “Anyone else notice that Kem and Amber were sat together and have now moved apart?”

“Can’t be the only one that noticed Kem as moved seats from being sat next to amber #awks #NTAS” another said.
“When you notice Kem has moved seats away from amber on the NTAs.”
“Love how at the start of the NTA’s Amber and Kem were sat together and now Chris and Olivia are in between them hahahaha.”
“Lmaooo Kem and amber were sat together but now they’ve moved apart I wonder what went down.” another wrote.
“LOOOL KEM AND LIV SWAPPED PLACES BETWEEN THE BREAK SO KEM AND CHRIS ARE SAT TOGETHER AND OLIVIA AND AMBER ARE SAT TOGETHER.”
“How awkward that Kem & Amber have been separated at the #NTAs when they were sat together before the ad break.” another said.
