Glamour model Katie Price is the latest addition to UK Celebrity Big Brother, joining celebs such as Michelle Visage, Perez Hilton and Katie Hopkins in the claustrophobic bungalow. In the latest highlights show, Pricey was looking back at her life and declared she had no regrets. Well, none except her Eurovision bid in 2005.
Explaining her regret, the “Not Just Anybody” singer said, “I looked shocking, I sounded shocking and I couldn’t even sing the song now. I couldn’t sing it then!”
It’s not the first time Katie has expressed regret over her Eurovision bid. In 2010 she said she felt as soon as her pregnancy became known, Javine became the favoured winner. And in a 2012 interview, she said she sounded “awful on the night”.
It’s worth remembering that in the UK national final, Making Your Mind Up 2005, the pregnant Pricey placed a very close second to Javine. She won the Scottish vote and web vote and there was a point where it seemed like Pricey might be headed to Kiev. And with Javine placing a disappointing 22 out of 24 in the final, we can’t help wonder if “Not Just Anybody” would have done better for the UK.
Is Katie Price right to have regrets about her Eurovision bid? Or should the UK public have given her a chance?
