Katie Price turns home improvement guru in new reality show Katie Price's Mucky Mansion, which sees her try to rescue her sprawling home from its state of disrepair.

The former glamour model's house has been dubbed Mucky Mansion over the state it has fallen into in recent years, but she's determined to renovate and redecorate it into a dream family home - all filmed by Channel 4.

Of course, this isn't Price's first foray into reality TV, with huge portions of her life documented on camera.

We take a look back at five of the star's biggest reality TV hits.

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!

Price has pulled off a jungle feat that no other celeb has ever managed – she's taken part in two separate series of the ITV jungle-based contest.

She is also famed for finding love on the show with campmate Peter Andre, the only jungle romance ever to have resulted in marriage and children, although they have since split.

Price and Andre took part in series three in 2004, and in a look back at 20 years of the series she said: "It was a proper love story and I think me and Pete are the only ones who had kids come out of it.

"I was 23, I had no idea I'd go into the jungle and meet my husband."

Sadly, the couple were divorced by 2009 and Price went back into the jungle the same year, but eventually quit after being voted into almost every trial.

Katie & Peter

Before heading into the jungle, Price had already tried her hand at a number of fly-on-the-wall documentaries under her glamour model alias, Jordan.

With the public in love with their love story during the first few years, Price welcomed the cameras back into her home once more for nine series of Katie & Peter, showing every aspect of their lives together as they married and had two children.

It was a reality hit for ITV2 and even after the couple split, they continued with their own individual shows.

Price branched off with three series of her own show Katie, one series of Katie & Alex which featured her short-lived marriage to second husband Alex Reid, and more recently, Katie Price: My Crazy Life.

She also offers reality content on her YouTube channel, which saw her travel to Turkey for cosmetic surgery during the pandemic.

Back in 2011, Pricey decided she'd like to share her fame around a bit by launching a talent search for the next big thing to hit the modelling world.

Up for grabs was a full lifestyle of prizes including a model management contract, mentorship from Price herself, a holiday in the Maldives, yearly calendars, magazine shoots, a Range Rover for a year and an apartment.

Amy Willerton was the eventual winner of the Sky Living show, but the runner-up was a then unknown Rylan Clark, pre-X Factor fame.

Willerton went on to enjoy her own reality TV appearances, including I'm A Celebrity and The Jump.

Celebrity Big Brother

Proving she could still draw in the viewer votes, Price won the 15th series of Celebrity Big Brother in 2015, an even bigger achievement as she'd only actually joined the house 10 days in.

Her Signed by Katie Price find Rylan Clark was by then hosting the spin-off series Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side.

The runner-up that series was the controversial Katie Hopkins, while housemates Jeremy Jackson and Ken Morley were removed before Price even moved in – Jackson for pulling open Chloe Goodman's dressing gown, and Morley for using racist language.

Katie Price: Harvey and Me

Last year, Price managed to change public perception of her again with an open and honest look at her life with eldest child Harvey.

Her son has a number of disabilities and health conditions, including Prader-Willi syndrome, and the BBC documentary followed him turning 18 as Price began to look into the options for his future and care as an adult.

The hugely emotional programme also saw her meet other families facing the same transition and learn more about what could go right or wrong depending on the support chosen.

It was so well received that the BBC commissioned a follow up, Katie Price: What Harvey Did Next, to find out how his life as an adult has begun.

Katie Price's Mucky Mansion begins on Wednesday, 26 January, on Channel 4 at 9pm.
