Katie Price didn't enjoy wedding to Peter Andre

Katie Price and Peter Andre had a famously over-the-top ceremony at Highclere Castle, the setting of hit drama Downton Abbey.

Katie Price didn't enjoy the day she got married to Peter Andre.

The Loose Women panellist and the Mysterious Girl singer got hitched in 2005 in a famously over-the-top ceremony at Highclere Castle, the setting of hit TV drama Downton Abbey, with Katie choosing to sport a big pink gown and arrive in a Cinderella-style carriage.

The newlyweds scored a magazine deal for their big day and while they appeared happy in their wedding pictures, Katie, 38, has admitted she didn't enjoy the celebration at all, despite splashing out around £1 million on it.

"I didn't enjoy the day. We did it for a magazine shoot," she said on Wednesday's (17May17) episode of Loose Women. "We had the carriage, we had the tunnel, special carpet, pink lighting... It was ridiculous."

She insisted she enjoyed getting married to Peter, the father of her children Junior, 11, and Princess, nine, but she didn't get to see most of the wedding.

They divorced in 2009 and she has walked down the aisle twice since - with Alex Reid and her current husband Kieran Hayler, whom she married in 2013 in a much more modest ceremony in The Bahamas.

"We did it in the evening. Instead of having afternoon guests and evening guests, we invited everyone to watch us, then went straight into a hog roast," she explained. "Being experienced at weddings, I feel that everything is about you, but you end up making it a showcase for other people instead."

Katie and Kieran split in 2014 amid allegations he had been unfaithful with two of her good friends, but they reconciled shortly after their daughter Bunny was born that August. The couple, who are also parents to a three-year-old son named Jett, renewed their wedding vows in 2015.

Peter, 44, has since gone on to marry Emily MacDonagh, with whom he shares two children.
