Katie Price slams rise and fall Channel 5 documentary and tells fans be kind

Katie Price has furiously hit back at a new Channel 5 documentary about her life in the spotlight.

The broadcaster aired Shameless: The Rise and Fall of Katie Price on Friday (December 30), which explored the former glamour model's career and personal life.

The 90-minute one-off special detailed the highs of the mother-of-five's fame to her recent bankruptcy case.

However, Katie logged into her Instagram before the show aired and insisted she was in a "really good place" despite her setbacks.

Sharing a video on her Instagram Story in view of her 2.3million fans, the mother of five said: "Hey everyone, apparently there is a documentary on me tonight, I think it's just started, called Shameless: The Rise and Fall of me. I just wanted you to know that I've had nothing to do with it.

"The people involved who were meant to be my "friends", are not my friends and don't know anything about me either.

"I suppose they are going to get old interviews, archives of things, copy and paste, put things together but I just want you to know that a lot of us go up and then down and I am on my way up. I'm not falling at all and I'm in a really good place."

On the same post, she added a lengthy caption: "The funny thing is I'm happier than ever, my kids are happy and I have great friends and family around me. I certainly am not falling. This is a reminder to be kind.

"I think the media forget I have created an amazing life for my family from the age of 17 which I bet many others haven't had.

"I have travelled the world, worked hard and just because I am in the public eye I am used to make TV like this which I am nothing to do with.

"Therapy is the best thing I can recommend to anyone who is struggling," she added. "I admit I have had my ups and downs, relationship problems etc. but I am still here, strong and ready for 2023."

She later pouted for the camera in a selfie as she turned on the documentary about her life.

Katie gained recognition in the late 1990s for her glamour modelling work and had numerous appearances on Page 3 in the British tabloid newspapers billed under the pseudonym Jordan.

The documentary claimed that the reality star got the nickname aged 18 and it was inspired by the "Formula 1 racing car team".

After becoming model, the media personality went on to become one of the most recognised faces in Britain.

The show also claimed that Katie posed for snaps with footballers to make money.

"She was clever, she understood how it all worked, she was smart," former showbiz editor at The Mirror, John Blake told the documentary cameras.

"She would be photographed coming out of a club drunk with a famous footballer, and she'd talk to a photographer and they would often pay her."

This Morning star Vanessa Feltz also chimed: "She knew exactly what she was doing, she knew the game had to be played and she knew exactly how to play it."

At the top of her game, Katie reportedly amassed a staggering £45million in wealth.
