Watch: Katie Price's sister admits she doesn't tell people she is related to the star

Katie Price's sister Sophie Price has revealed she was bullied at school for being related to the former glamour model.

The 43-year-old reality star appeared on Good Morning Britain with her 31-year-old younger sister - who admitted she doesn't usually mention her famous family connection.

Sophie confessed: "To be honest I don't normally tell a lot of people [I'm Katie's sister]. Not that there's anything wrong with it, it's just I'm quite private. People tend to find out themselves, I don't actually say."

She added: "She's been in the public eye since I was about six so I don't know any different... I got agro' at school. Just girls saying nasty things. You know what teenagers can be like."

Katie admitted that it there were unpleasant repercussions to her fame for her sister and mother, Amy.

She said: "My family - if they see headlines, 'cause we're all so close they get the backlash. Where I might put on a front, they see the real side."

The two sisters admit that despite their close relationship they couldn't be more different.

Sophie recently became a mother to three-month-old son Albert and so the sisters are going into business together, launching a range of baby clothing, Little Pricey.

Katie recently told OK! magazine: "I have been burnt so badly in business from a young age. You get too trusting and I don’t like to see the bad in anyone, but when it comes to money you’d be surprised how greedy people get. They’ll do anything to stitch you up and try and take a cut. This way, like a lot of stuff I do now since the Priory, I’m in charge of everything and I know everything. I know what I get paid, when it comes in, the tax, the VAT, I know where everything goes now."

The reality star – who was declared bankrupt in 2019 – is mother to 19-year-old son Harvey, whose father is footballer Dwight Yorke, teenagers Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with first husband Peter Andre, and Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven, with third husband Kieran Hayler.

Katie – who has previously spoken about her treatment for cocaine addiction – returned to rehab at The Priory clinic at the beginning of 2020.

She is now registered as disabled after breaking both her feet when she fell from a 25ft wall in Turkey while on holiday last summer.
