KATIE Price has begged fans to sign up to a dating app so they can “win a date” with her.
The 42-year-old star took to Instagram today and revealed she’s ready to find love as she promoted the new dating platform.
She told fans to “swip up” to be in with a chance of nabbing a virtual date with her during lockdown.
She said: “Hi guys listen to this. Well I haven’t been on a dating app for absolutely ages and now I’m ready to date.
“There is this new app called Love At First Swipe and what’s good about it is you can do an automatic screen block, and they’ve launched it so you can do a video virtual date.
“Now come on, if you swipe up now you could be in with a chance to win a date me! I’m so excited let’s see who is out there – come one swipe up now.”
The mum-of-five has had a string of high profile relationships including, with footballer Dwight Yorke with whom she has son Harvey, ex-husbands Peter Andre and Kieran Hayler – the fathers of four of her children – Princess and Junior with Pete and Jett and Bunny with Kieran.
She’s also dated the likes of racing car driver Ralf Schumacher, cage fighter Alex Reid and personal trainer Kris Boyson to name a few.
But now she’s turned over a new leaf Katie is determined not to let her relationships define her and would change all “the men I chose”.
She told New! Magazine: “I hate the fact I let these men in the past break me and destroy me and mentally abuse me.
“But now I’m so much better.
“Before I would jump into relationships and I was needy without thinking about whether it was the right relationship.
“But now I’ve sorted myself out and I’m more assertive.
“I know what I want and I wouldn’t just jump into a relationship.”
Katie opened up about her difficult year during which she turned to drugs and booze to cope with the deaths of her animals and her mum’s terminal illness.
She has moved into a rented home around the corner from ex husband Pete, 47, after her “mucky mansion” was too dilapidated to return to.
The Sun Online revealed Katie is so committed to staying sober she’s doing monthly drug tests.
The reality star is voluntarily undergoing checks to prove she’s free of all drugs after her stint at rehab facility The Priory.
Her rep confirmed that Katie wants to do the tests to “build trust” with Pete and Kieran –
She says: “Katie will carry on taking tests every few months – this her choice.
“She will continue to build trust with both fathers involved in joint parenting.”
The Sun Online revealed last week how Katie had managed to stay sober for three months after checking into rehab in January.

Katie said: “I want everyone to see this is for real – I am back. After giving birth to my five beautiful children this is the most empowering feeling in the world.”
She admitted to using drugs and alcohol to numb the pain of a terrible year.
Speaking on her reality show, My Crazy Life, she told her friend Rick: “Because my head was so numb with stuff, my reaction was ‘oh just another thing, just another thing,’ which wasn’t normal to act like, just no emotion.
“So that’s why I turned to something to escape from that, and mine ended up being the coke.
