Katie André (née Katrina Amy Alexandria Alexis Infield; , also known as Katie Price and professionally as Jordan, is a former English glamour model, television personality, magazine columnist, writer, singer and businesswoman. Her personal life is regularly featured in British tabloids and celebrity-based magazines
Her decision to start modeling came after a friend suggested she have some professional photographs done. The pictures were sent to a modeling agency in London, and to her surprise, the agency invited her into their studios for a photo shoot and to discuss a contract. Within weeks she began appearing on 'Page 3' of the The Sun newspaper (topless modelling). It was at this time that she assumed the name "Jordan" when somebody in the photoshoot disapproved her using her real name and felt Jordan would be best suited for her
Although she was already a well-established model, with frequent appearances on Page 3 and in men's lifestyle magazines to her credit, Jordan was still insecure about the size of her breasts, believing that breast implants would make her look better. Despite protests from friends and family, Jordan underwent the operation, increasing her cup size from a B to a D
Under the name Katie Price, she was one of the acts competing for the right to represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, to be held in Ukraine. On 5 March 2005, singing a song titled "Not Just Anybody", wearing a skin tight pink catsuit whilst heavily pregnant, she lost the public vote, coming in second place in the pre-selection show Making Your Mind Up, behind Javine. The other contestants were the 1996 UK entrant Gina G, as well as Andy Scott-Lee, and the group Tricolore.
Price and André released a duets album on 27 November 2006 titled A Whole New World, with all proceedings going to their chosen charities affiliated with the many health conditions of her eldest son, Harvey. The album debuted at #20 in the UK album chart and achieved platinum status.
In October 2003, Price appeared in an advertising campaign for the supermarket chain Kwik Save. To publicise the chain's promotion to cut the prices of their leading lines in half, Price was sawed in half by magician Peter McCahon.
In November 2006, Price launched The Katie Price Lingerie Collection in conjunction with Panache available exclusively at Asda stores, as well as a follow-up jewellery deal with Argos.
In 2007, Price was announced as the new face of Foxy Bingo and launched a hair care range at Superdrug. She also brought out her first perfume, Stunning in August. Her second perfume, Besotted, is released in shops on 24 September.
