“He wants to go on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’; he wants to present ‘Jeremy Kyle’; he wants a Lamborghini. He keeps telling me he’s famous, and I’m trying to tell him that just because his father put him on his TV show, that doesn’t make him famous himself,” Price told the Independent on Sunday.

Katie is mother to 11-year-old Harvey from a former relationship with Dwight Yorke, and eight-year-old Junior and five-year-old Princess Tiaamii from her marriage with Peter Andre.
