Katie Price Ruled Out Of Celebrity Big Brother
Glamour girl won't be joining pal Rylan in the house...
Katie Price as a housemate for the upcoming series.
It had been rumoured that Pricey would join her pal Rylan Clark, of The X Factor fame, but it seems the plan won't come to fruition - because producers feel they're too similar.
An insider told The Mirror: "Katie has always been at the top of the list of potential CBB housemates and she was a real candidate this series because her deal with Sky is up.
"Her exes Alex Reid and Dane Bowers were in one series together, and it made a great talking point - Alex even won the show."
The source went on: "The idea of having Katie and Rylan seemed perfect. They promised late night karaoke sessions and lots of boozy antics.
"But the bosses had a re-think. They felt that their personalities were so similar, they might risk becoming a turn-off for viewers."
And apparently Rylan is in while Katie's out.
However, the gossip did add: "Katie has been invited to take part in the summer edition."
Other stars rumoured to be entering the house on 3 January include Jim Davidson, Gillian Taylforth of EastEnders fame and temporarily banned jockey Frankie Dettori.
