Katie Price 'to edit Today show'

Glamour model Katie Price has been asked to guest edit Radio 4's flagship Today programme, according to reports.

Guest editors are invited to take part in the show every year, between Christmas and new year, to inspire its broadcasts over the holiday season.

The television star turned bestselling author, formerly known as Jordan, could follow in the footsteps of previous guest editors Norman Tebbit, Richard Branson and Bono, according to The Times.

A spokesman for Katie described the idea as "intriguing" and told the paper: "It would be a great project. There is more to Katie than meets the eye."

A spokeswoman for Today said: "We haven't finalised the line up for this year yet."

An announcement on the guest editors, who will work with BBC staff to produce between a third and a half of their programme's output, is expected shortly.

Mum-of-three Katie is no stranger to the media spotlight.

Her appearance in 2004 on hit reality TV show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here transfixed viewers as her romance with Australian singer Peter Andre unfolded on television.

Their marriage made them a golden media couple, boosting their wealth and popularity with countless magazine deals, plus a string of hit fly-on-the-wall reality shows, detailing their domestic ups and downs. However, by early 2009, the cracks in the relationship began to show and the pair announced their separation in May.

As their divorce was finalised, Price had already embarked on a relationship with cagefighter Alex Reid whom she subsequently married in Las Vegas.
