Katie Price drops out of Celebrity Cooking School
Katie Price has dropped out of E4’s 'Celebrity Cooking School'.
The 44-year-old former glamour model has reportedly left show bosses disappointed as they are now being forced to replace her at the last minute.
A source told The Sun: "Katie was a big signing for 'Celebrity Cooking School' so it was hugely disappointing when she dropped out.
"It had all been given the green light for filming but at the last moment Katie said she would not commit.
"Her decision to pull out has caused a major headache for the show’s production team as they have been tasked with pulling in a replacement at the last moment.
"They are sure the show will be a hit without Katie but there is no doubt it is a big loss to their line up."
Katie was reportedly set to pocket a five-figure fee for competing in the series.
An insider said previously: "She's getting a massive payday for only a couple of weeks' work.
“Her contract sees her bank more money the longer she lasts in the competition, and she'll get a bonus if she makes it to the final three, so she's looking at banking around the 15-20k mark if she lasts the duration of the series.
“Chances that she'll go the whole way are pretty high too as she's already done 'Celebrity Masterchef', so she has that advantage on some of the other contestants, and bosses know she's a big draw for the show so won't want to eliminate her early.”
