It may seem like the unlikeliest of friendships, but Katie Price has revealed she struck up a close bond with fellow Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins contender Anthea Turner.

The show sees 12 celebrities stepping out of their comfort zones and embarking on a host of gruelling tests of stamina and endurance on Scotland’s rugged west coast that are normally used as part of the selection process for SAS hopefuls.

And while the experience is likely to have proven incredibly tough for the celebs, two of them look as though they may have made a lasting impression on each other.

When mother-of-five Price was asked if she had bonded with anyone during the show, she responded: “Anthea Turner. She was amazing. 

“I admire her control, her ability to let go and be OK with showing her feelings – mainly fear and panic – on this show. She isn’t a stuck-up prude, she is a life survivor and lovely lady.”

It would appear the feeling is mutual, as when asked the same question, TV presenter Turner responded: “I’ve got to be honest, my revelation from this whole experience was meeting Katie Price and realising how gorgeous she is outside of the other character she has.

“There's these two sides of Katie and meeting the real Katie Price was just lovely.”
