Katie Price to top bestseller list

Katie Price is set to go straight to the top of the Sunday Times Bestseller list this week, with her new novel Paradise.
The former glamour model's fifth novel, the final instalment in her Angel trilogy, will go straight in at number one for hardback fiction, outselling the number two book by two copies to one, her publisher, Random House, said.
Katie, who chooses the plots for her books, penned by ghostwriter Rebecca Farnworth, said: "I think it's brilliant that it's number one. It just goes to show people that when I really put my mind to something it makes number one and it's brilliant and I'm absolutely over the moon."
Hundreds of screaming fans turned up to HMV on London's Oxford Street on Wednesday to see the 32-year-old mother-of-three, aka Jordan, sign copies of her new book, which tells the story of a model from Brighton who rekindles her relationship with her ex.
Asked if there were any parallels between Angel's feelings for her ex and her own towards ex-husband Peter Andre, she said: "No, it's a novel and it's fiction."
The reality TV star also confirmed the trilogy of Angel novels are to be made into a Hollywood film, as is her own autobiography.
She said: "I've already got a director and producer in America who are going to do a film about that."
Asked if she'd star in the film herself, she said: "No, I can't act to save my life.
"I would do something like what Mel Gibson did. He produced a film called (Paparazzi), which I suggest everyone watches, and he made a cameo role in that, so I would do something like that. I might just sit on a sofa in the background, but not talk or anything."
