After narrowly avoiding a court hearing over her debt last week,Katie Price revealed a new money-making scheme. The mum of five is resurrecting her alter-ego, Jordan, and has signed up to raunchy picture-subscription site, OnlyFans, following in the footsteps of pal Kerry Katona. Dressed as a nun to announce the news, she seemed unfazed by her recent woes and said, “The reason I’m doing it now is because there’s no lads’ mags like before. I’m not doing anything for nothing, I don’t need to flaunt my body on social media for nothing when I will always be paid to do what I love to do. For me, I think my body is valuable – there’s so many young girls doing this, but I’m just as good as them.”

Emily Andre: ‘I try to keep things consistent’

But a source says that despite her bravado, joining OnlyFans has been Jordan’s “only viable option”. The source adds, “For so long, Katie has said she won’t go down this route, but her financial situation is dire. She’s in a difficult situation – financially and personally – and she’s seen other people dig themselves out of holes by joining OnlyFans. She wants a slice of the cake and she feels this is now her last resort.”

Last week, Jordan was facing court for not paying a three-year-old fine, but she managed to avoid an appearance by paying it in the 11th hour. Reports also claimed she was being investigated by authorities over her lavish lifestyle since being declared bankrupt in 2019 and owing £3.2 million to creditors. Instead of living modestly, she has been taking luxury trips to Vegas and Turkey. And while she reportedly earned a six-figure sum for her new Channel 4 show, her lawyer has said she’s so “disorganised and chaotic” with her finances that she ends up racking up thousands in unpaid fines. A source adds, “Katie has never been able to keep her finances in order and that’s why she’s managed to blow £45m over the years – unfortunately it seems she hasn’t learned from past mistakes.”

Meanwhile, on 21 January, Jordan, 43, was arrested on suspicion of breaching a restraining order, which bans her from contacting Michelle Penticost, her ex-husband Kieran Hayler’s fiancée. Jordan was given the order in 2019 after abusing Michelle at the school gates. The arrest came four months after she flipped her car while driving at 6.20am – she was later given a 16-week sentence for drink-driving while disqualified and not having insurance.

In July, Closer reported that Jordan had been considering doing OnlyFans in a bid to “turn her life around”. It’s thought she was partly inspired by her old friend Kerry Katona, who was declared bankrupt 14 years ago, but is now thought to earn over £1million a year.

At the time, Jordan had recently undergone a Brazilian bum lift, full body liposuction and a third face lift, but her fiancé Carl was said to be unhappy with her joining the site. He has previously told Closer that he disliked her alter-ego, saying, “If she was still her ‘Jordan’ alter-ego we would have clashed because I hate partying. I can’t stand the ‘Jordan’ thing. I like it when we are on the sofa watching Neflix.”

After his smash hit 'Out of Your Mind' with Victoria Beckham (who Katie reportedly had a feud with) Dane went a bit quiet on the music scene. Fast forward to 2013 and he reformed with Another Level for The Big Reunion. More recently, Dane has been linked to Love Island star Laura Anderson, who he apparently ended up cheating on. He must have been out of his mind #sorrynotsorry

Gareth went on to star in The Big Reunion with another one of Katie's exes, Dane Bowers. Awkward. Katie has also said that she would totally go back 'there' with Gareth. Unfortunately for Katie, West End actor Gareth is now happily in a relationship with Corrie star Faye Brooke. In January 2019 it was reported that the pair were engaged.

Matt married an actress and model called Rachael in 2016. Bizarrely, his photos have also been used in quite a few catfishing incidents. But Katie recently started following Matt on Instagram - what can this mean?

Peter Andre 2004 - 2009

The nation watched Peter Andre fall for Katie's charms on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2004. The pair then starred in a string of reality TV shows documenting their life after a fairytale wedding. They even released an album of duets, which we'd all rather just forget about. Katie and Peter had two children together, Junior and Princess, during their five years of marriage.

Things between Pricey and Peter have soured in the years following their split, after he blasted Katie for her 'wild' behaviour. Peter is now married to Emily MacDonagh, who Junior and Princess see as an older sister figure. Pete also landed himself a role in the next Thomas The Tank Engine film.

Alex went on the star in Celebrity Big Brother and he continues to fight. He's been married to Nikki Manashe since 2013. Most recently, he has been involved in a sex tape allegation - claiming that Katie showed a group of people a video of him performing a sex act. Will the drama ever end? (We hope not.)

Leandro Penna- 2011-2012

Katie got engaged to Leandro after a whirlwind romance shortly after splitting from Alex Reid - despite the couple barely being able to communicate thanks to his limited English and Katie's non-existent Spanish (former model Leandro hails from Argentina). Leo said of their split, "Katie's brain is not wired right, or the wires don't connect properly. I don't know what's wrong with her. I was thinking it over recently and one day decided to pack my bags and leave. There was nothing else I could do. She was driving me insane."

Since splitting with KP, Leandro has quit fame to return to his native South America and now runs a successful avocado farm and business. Launching in October 2021 he said, "I present my new avocado venture @paltasroyal. Thanks to all the businesses that gave us confidence, to all the avocado-loving customers and to those merchants who have not yet bought them, do not hesitate."

Kieran Hayler 2012 - 2018

It looked like Katie had a good thing going with Kieran Hayler and their two kids, Jett and Bunny. But Kieran had to go and ruin it by cheating on Katie with her nanny, two best friends (while she was pregnant), then again with a 19-year-old shop assistant. Katie kept taking him backbut she FINALLY called it quits in May 2018.

Katie started dating personal trainer Kris Boyson within weeks of splitting from Kieran. She celebrated her 40th birthday with him and her family are said to have approved of him. Their relationship lasted a year before split rumours started to circulate, and the pair have been on and off-ing since September 2019.

Kris is still posting insanely buff topless selfies (keep 'em coming, Kris) and his personal training business is thriving. After his split from Katie, he began dating Katie's former pal Bianca Gascoigne, much to Katie's dismay. The couple moved in together within days due to lockdown but split after nearly a year together, citing their hectic work schedules.

However, Carl supported her at her launch last week and, in a shock twist, announced he was also joining OnlyFans, sarcastically telling fans he was “shocked” that she had gone back to her “original” job. Jordan gushed, “Carl is my massive supporter – he’s excited as well.” And insiders say the pair – who were pictured at an IVF clinic last week – have had a change of heart in a bid to build a more secure future.

The source says, “It’s been an horrendous few months for Katie – she faced jail, was arrested again, and is struggling with her finances. Carl has urged her to turn things around, for the sake of her family. While Carl didn’t like the idea of Katie doing OnlyFans, she’s reassured him that people won’t see any nude pictures or anything different to what she posts anyway – yet she will make so much more money from it. She just wants them to have a comfortable future with a nice home, luxury cars and lots of holidays – the lifestyle they have been accustomed to.”
