Reveal - - Celebs - Kimberley Bond

It’s not just Kieran that Katie took a swipe at last week, with the for­mer glamour model claim­ing she’s ‘more Pricey’ than her ex­hus­band, Peter An­dre.

In the wake of the BBC’s gen­der pay-gap scan­dal, Katie told her fel­low panel mem­bers on Loose Women that she was worth more than the Mys­te­ri­ous Girl singer and was even paid more when they were do­ing the same job.

The 39-year-old said, ‘One rule I learned in this in­dus­try is, never dis­cuss your fee with any­one, be­cause it does cause ar­gu­ments. ‘Even in the past, even if we did a shoot, we used to have sep­a­rate con­tacts.

‘I used to get more [money] than him, as I know my worth. I knew if I wasn’t on the cover, the oth­ers wouldn’t be worth it on their own.’

And Katie, who’s amassed a for­tune of around £40 mil­lion, doesn’t see a rea­son why a woman should be earn­ing less than her male coun­ter­part.

‘I think women are just as pow­er­ful as men – I don’t get it, my­self,’ she added, ‘If women want to earn more than men, they should grow a pair of balls.’

Be­cause I’m worth it – Pricey ver­sus Pete
