Katie Price To Film Showdown With Alex Reid

Katie Price I'm A CelebrityAfter kicking her boyfriend into touch on live television Katie Price remains in Australia. She's not wasting her time though - ker-ching - she's filming bits for her ITV2 reality television show.

One of the scenes Katie hopes to film is a showdown with her now ex boyfriend Alex Reid. Some people, it appears, will do anything for money.

Katie has been re-negotiating her I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! contract so that she can return to the UK, hopefully (as far as she is concerned) by this weekend - flights permitting. She wrote on Twitter, "At last I got out my contract I'm coming home to my children soooo excited."

Cerys has just given birth to a premature baby - eight weeks early - both are reportedly doing well.

The baby, who hasn't been named as yet, is Cerys' third child but the first with her current boyfriend / manager 49 year old Steve Abbott.

We wish them well.

Jedward For The Jungle - Surely Not

Jedward - John and EdwardThey would be mad if they did, but the rumours are that the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here bods want Jedward (John and Edward of X Factor fame) to replace Katie Price in the jungle. They have been reportedly offered £50,000 each to do so.

Crazy or what?

John supposedly asked: "Can we do that? Are we celebrities?" Well it hasn't stopped many other z-listers signing up on the chance that it could give them a career boost.

Now that Katy has left I'm A Celeb who is there, already in the jungle, to entertain us? Mmmmm, a difficult one.

You can see why the producers are scratching around for a big or controversial name to stimulate interest. And, whatever anyone thinks of Jedward, they would create an interest. But if they did enter the jungle they would surely be making a wrong move - even for £50,000.

Katie Price Leaves I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!

Katie Price says she won't do the Bushtucker Trial
Katie Price leaves I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of HereThe Katie Price Show is no more! She's packed her jungle bags and has left the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! show.

She simply said, "I just don't wan't to be here any more." The final straw being voted yet again for a bushtucker trial.

ITV would only say, "Katie Price has left the jungle," and added that there are "no current plans" to replace her.

Regarding the Bushtucker Trial she was nominated for, along with Joe Bugner, Katie Price said, "Someone else has to do it. I'm just not doing it any more. Everyone else, give them something to do. You've seen me struggle, you've seen me cry, shake, want to die. Do you know its mentally torturing? I’m starting to feel a bit sick. I really don't want to be doing this. I miss my children. I’m hungry. I want a nice bed and I don’t want to have to put myself through these horrible challenges."

So should we all feel sorry for Katie? Well, no.

More than anyone else she knew full well what she was getting into and was also being paid loads of dosh for her jungle exploits. Most of us would be chuffed to bits to earn £350,000 for three weeks work.

It's another Jade Goody scenario. You don't move forward by doing what you've already done. Returning to Big Brother destroyed Jade and, who knows, what will happen now to Katie. Sometimes the public won't forgive.

Hopefully some of the other contestants will now take center stage in I'm A Celeb and will be given an opportunity to shine.

No Alcohol For Katie Price On I'm A Celebrity

Katie Price boobsIt's said that Katie Price wanted alcohol banned from the jungle, just in case she does / says something that she shouldn't.

As she put it, "I'm Katie Price, but whenever I've had a drink everyone says I become Jordan. Everyone changes when they've had a drink. They get more confident. When I've been drinking, I like to take my clothes off. Don't ask me why."

A diva she may think she is but it would be unfair to ban the others from a bit of booze - if that's what they want. And anyway we've all seen Katy without her clothes, haven't we?

Perhaps she should drink to make her next bushtucker trial more interesting, her sixth on the trot. It looks like she'll be doing them all until she's evicted. Though Kim and Joe must be getting on viewers nerves by now.

I'm A Celeb: Or Is It The Katie Price Show?

Katie Price jungle boobs
Welcome to the Katie Price Show. Sorry, meant I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! But it does seen as if she has taken over the show at the moment - and what's more the bookies haven't made her the first to be evicted. Guess they realise that the I'm A Celeb producers won't let this happen by careful editing.

At the moment they reckon Sabrina Washington is favourite to be the first to be sent packing, followed by Camilla Dallerup, Justin Ryan and Colin McAllister ... and then comes Katy at 7/1 if you want a bet.

As for the Katy Price Show, she says that she is in the jungle for two main reasons, in her words:

1. "This (I'm A Celeb) is a job for me - I'm a single mum who works to support her family and the money they were offering was very hard to turn down."

2. "If the way to get the public to like me again is to put me through my paces in the jungle, then that's what I'll have to do."

As far as the other bit players, Kim did well in her trial. She's got guts and got stuck in and won the maximum stars. Though she'll no doubt get on everyone nerves in the end and does seem obsessed with her boobs.

Camilla burst into tears - bless!

And back to the Katy Show: What has happened to her top lip? She has the look of a duck billed platypus about her and keeps covering her mouth to disguise this. Something not quite right.

Samantha Fox Is Looking Good

Samatha Fox and the water spider
Well you've got to hand it to Samantha Fox on the first I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here show. There she was with no make up and a big water spider in her mouth - not exactly the image for a previous glamour girl. But she's got guts and did what she had to do in the challenges without any bother. She could go a long way in the show.

Otherwise the pneumatic Katie Price (or is she once again Jordan?) is getting all of the news coverage, what with an argument with the producers and alegedly ignoring fans in Australia.

She wrote on Twitter: "Never underestimate the pricey!! Another journey begins lol xxxx"

So why is she going into the jungle? Katie/Jordan said: "I'm going back in because it's an amazing experience, I'm a working mum and I want closure on the fairytale that I had,"

Lucy Benjamin bikiniI've got no agenda, I'm not going to act any different, I'm just going to be myself. Obviously, six years on, I'm more mature, I'm wiser, and I shall just be myself. I don't think I've got any advantage over any other person going there, apart from I've experienced how hungry they really make you!"

I think there's a lot of people hoping she'll fall flat on her face - if that's physically possible for Katie, of course!

In the Bikini Under The Shower Jungle Stakes: Lucy Benjamin has taken the lead with her blue bikini while Sam let us all down wearing a one piece swim suit. Camilla Dallerup is quoted as saying, "I am worried about wearing my bikinis in camp. I fear I will be the only one without massive melons."

Lucy Benjamin Favourite To Win I'm A Celeb

Lucy Benjamin bikiniThe Offical I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! line-up as supplied by ITV is:

Camilla Dallerup, Colin McAllister, George Hamilton, Gino D'Acampo, Jimmy White, Justin Ryan, Kim Woodburn, Lucy Benjamin, Sabrina Washington, Sam Fox and Stuart Manning.

So that's eleven celebs. Erm, but what about the much heralded Katie Price, who hasn't joined the others as yet? Seems, or so the story goes, that she may be joining them after the first day - it's all a bit hush hush.

Katie is definitely not the other celebs favourite. There's resentment at what she is supposedly being paid. Colin and Justin have described her as 'unpleasant' and Camilla said that Katie could be a 'handful' - and she wasn't referring to her boobs.

Favourites to win the show, according to the betting odds, are Lucy Benjamin (that's her in her bikini enjoying Australia) and Jimmy White. Lucy has a decent fan base following her EastEnders stint.

Katie Price For I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! 2009

Katie Price - Jordan
It looks as if Katie Price will be the first celeb to have a second bash at winning I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!

Why on earth would she put herself the ordeal again? Money, of course. She's supposedly on a quarter of a million pounds - though she seemingly asked for £350,000. And, of course, it may help boost her popularity, which has taken a bit of a nose dive recently.

The photo is taken from her 2010 Jordan Calendar.

Also amongst the 2010 glamour contestants is ex page 3 girl Samantha Fox, who the producers hope may just clash with Katie.
