Katie Price admits she ‘acts stupid’ as she looks back at glamour model fame

Katie Price has admitted she "acts stupid" but actually "knows what's going on" when it comes to her drama-filled life.

The former glamour model was one of a number of famous faces who appeared in the new BBC Two show Celebrity: A 21st-Century Story, which looked back at how stars achieved their mega fame and how the showbiz industry boomed.

The 42-year-old originally shot to fame known as Jordan, gracing the cover of lads' mags and getting her boobs out on Page 3.

She then let cameras follow her around in one of the first fly on the wall reality shows, documenting her every move – including the most mundane of tasks.

Even now, rarely a day goes by without something new about the mum-of-five coming out – and it seems it's all part of a well-calculated plan.

Speaking on the BBC show, Katie said: "What I am is shrewd. I act stupid but I know what's going on."

The show aired clips of Katie from the height of her fame while also sharing clippings of newspaper articles with photos showing her on wild nights out.

She said: "I was going out clubbing, getting p***ed, falling out of nightclubs.

"I've always been me – and there's always been a drama."

Katie has lived her entire adult life in front of cameras, letting them in on her three marriages and personal life.

We watched as she fell in love with Peter Andre on I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, saw them get married and welcome their children Junior and Princess.

Fans have been there for her breakups, many surgeries, pregnancies and money troubles.

Katie said: "There's not many people you can say in this world who have their whole life documented – it's like I'm in The Truman Show."

She eventually managed to shed her raunchy image of Jordan and became a much more family friendly version of herself for the public.

And her fame didn't falter despite her new image, with her becoming just as popular as Katie Price as she had been as Jordan.
