Price named mum of the year - again

Katie Price has been named the Foxy Bingo Celebrity Mum of the Year - for a second time.

The glamour girl and mother of three, 33, triumphed following a public poll to regain the title she won five years ago.

Also in the running were Holly Willoughby and Victoria Beckham, and Katie edged ahead of Amanda Holden with whom she had been neck and neck.

The model and businesswoman said: "Being a mum is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world but it can also be very hard work - especially juggling a busy career with three kids."

Her former husband Peter Andre - who is father to two of her children Junior, six, and Princess, five - is a current celebrity dad of the year.

Katie also has another son, nine-year-old Harvey.

Receiving her title and trophy at a central London hotel, Katie said: "When you know there are so many celebrities that have been put up for it, to be number one is brilliant."

But she was not sure about displaying her prize at home - suggesting it may just go in a box. "My house is very modern and I haven't really got things like this about," she said.

"If I put it on the side, if Harvey is in a bad mood, he would probably pick it up and throw it - lob it out of the window or something. So I'll probably put it in a box with the rest of them."

Katie said she hoped she was an "inspiration" to others that you can balance a career with motherhood. "You just have to balance everything in life - that's what I do. You have to find time for your career, time for the kids, but you make it all work like any other working family or single mum."
