Why Katie Price can’t find Mr Right: Her fairytale romance that doesn’t exist

In the wake of Katie Price's dramatic split from Kieran Hayler, many have been asking why the former glamour model can't seem to hold down a man. Closer writer Ellie Hooper poses one theory.

With high profile unions to Peter Andre, Alex Reid and more, Katie has always enjoyed being part of a pair. In fact there have been relatively few times in the past decade when she's been single.

Whilst many may criticise her for this, I don't.

Katie is deeply romantic

It's my view that despite her straight-talking, don't mess with me exterior, 35-year-old Katie is in fact deeply romantic; someone who throws herself whole heartedly into relationships.

Price wants things to be perfect. It's why she prefers things as pink, sparkly and glamorous as possible; it's why she's always working on her self to make sure she looks like her ideal.

And whilst this has probably helped her build her business empire, this attitude can be very damaging in relationships.

The pinker, the girlier, the better

As Closer's relationship expert Tracey Cox explains, Jordan is 'in love with being in love: the heady, intoxicating 'honeymoon' phase when our brains and bodies are flooded with hormones that make us feel giddy - but also affect our judgement.'

'When the hormones wear off - usually between 9 and 18 months - we come back down to earth with a jolt'

'When the hormones wear off - usually between 9 and 18 months - we come back down to earth with a jolt and suddenly see our partners for who they are: a normal human beings with flaws,' Tracey adds.

Interesting then that it tends to be around this time that Katie's romances - and marriages - come tumbling down so spectacularly.

Katie has admitted to falling in love easily

The fact is, the fairytale that Katie is after (the one where your partner is absolutely perfect and never puts a foot wrong) doesn't exist. Adult relationships take work, and there are always going to be bumps in the road. Sadly, it can't always be this incredibly romantic, swooning affair.

Perhaps then it's time KP starts loving with her head and not her heart, if only to protect herself from further heartache.
