Her biggest-ever boob job may have divided public opinion, but Katie Price has no regrets, telling us, “I know I’ve still got it!”
Showcasing her latest surgery in a custom red lip print bikini, the 44-year-old certainly isn’t lacking in confidence in our exclusive photos – despite the trolls trying to bring her down.
The Pricey is on incredible form as she tells us – with her trademark humour – why it’s her right to do whatever she wants with her body. The star had her first boob job aged 18, going from a B cup to a C, and is keen to remind people that she worked for two decades as a glamour model without altering or enhancing any other part of her body.
Now a mum of five and in her forties, she says she can’t stop her body ageing and will “continue to do whatever I want” to it.
Speaking from her Thailand getaway, Katie says, “I started my career when they had no social media, no retouching, no airbrushing. The only thing I ever had done was my boobs when I was 18.
“I was a full-on glamour model for 20 years. I made all my money from my body and I did it all naturally, apart from my boobs.
“I’ve proved a point that I’m body confident and now I’m in my forties I’m doing the opposite – I’m pulling, nipping, tucking and doing whatever I want. And I will carry on. If you get a picture of anyone my age and compare it to how they were when they were young, of course they’re going to look different. Of course my body is not as good as it was.”
She continues, “People have to remember I’ve had five children. Really, I give myself a pat on the back because I know I’ve still got it! I still put myself up there – I know I can still smash it in a photoshoot. I think I can hold my own alongside any girl out there when they put me in front
of the camera.”
The glamour girl underwent her 16th boob job in Belgium last year, and she jokes with us, “I’ve probably had more boob jobs than boyfriends – and that’s a fact!”
Katie, now a double H, says her boobs are so big that she has to have her bikinis custom-made.
“I can’t buy bikinis any more,” she says. “I have a lady who makes them for me. I pick the design and this time I picked one for Bunny too, so we both have matching bikinis. When Princess comes away, all three of us will have matching bikinis. It’s fun!”
And while you might expect her bigger boobs to be a hindrance in daily life, Katie insists that’s not the case.
“I can do everything – I lie on my front on sunbeds, I can horse ride,” she says. “I don’t get backache. They don’t stop me from doing anything.
“After Big Brother, I had my implants taken out for six months due to an infection,” she recalls. “It made such a difference with clothes. I could be so much more fashionable and I looked so much slimmer without my boobs. But ultimately I just love big boobs more. These are the biggest boobs I’ve had. They’re massive and I love it!”
But Katie, who is holidaying with her children, Bunny, eight, and Jett, nine, doesn’t recommend undergoing surgery too young.
“I say to Princess how girls who are now in their early 20s, who have lip filler and filler in their faces, and Botox and boob jobs, all look the same. They all filter their pictures. Don’t get me wrong, I love a filter, but I’m confident enough to go without.
"I do my whole Mucky Mansion show without make-up on. I’m comfy in my own skin. Nobody is competition for me, I just think girls go too far these days.”
So does Katie fear her children could be influenced by her own experiences of surgery?
“I think what the kids have seen me go through is a put-off for anyone,” she laughs. “They’re like, ‘Mum, why do you do this to yourself?’ They say I look good, but they do also ask, ‘Why did you ever do anything to your face? You looked so good natural.’ But I don’t think I looked good natural. I look back at pictures and I think I look better now.
“People say Princess and I look alike, and personality-wise we are very alike, it’s just I don’t look at myself as I was before and think I look pretty, whereas I think Princess is stunning.”
While Katie’s loyal following regularly shower her with compliments, her social media feed is inundated with cruel comments from strangers casting judgement on her looks. But she has developed a thick skin and claims “most people out there would have surgery if they could”.
She adds, “I say to the haters, I am a woman and I am capable of making my own choices. I’m one of not many who admits what surgery they’ve had. It only upsets me when they talk about my children.”
While of course all surgery carries risks, right now the only surgery Katie has lined up is to repair her feet following a nightmare accident two years ago, when she fractured both heels jumping off a wall.
“There’s always a risk,” she says. “But the only time I get scared is when I have to have my feet operated on, because it’s not through choice. I literally s**t myself, I get so nervous and anxious.
“My family are like, ‘But Kate, you get yourself put to sleep for your surgery all the time,’ but I’m like, ‘That’s my choice, it’s different.’
“The only surgery I’m getting now is for my feet because of the life changing injuries. Other than that, I’ll still do my lips, but as surgery goes I’ve got nothing planned. But I’ll always say, ‘Never say never.’”
For now, Katie says her children, including Harvey, 20, and Junior, 17, are her focus.
She adds, “I’ve had a really good, uplifting year so far and I deserve it. It’s taken a couple of years to get here and sort myself out, but now I’m just concentrating on the kids.”
