Katie Price has reportedly declared she is “not bothered” about being made bankrupt and appeared to blame her ex-husband Peter Andre.

The 41-year-old reality star - once believed to be worth £40million was yesterday declared bankrupt in a London court just five weeks before Christmas.

But according to The Sun Price ranted to strangers on a packed commuter train on Monday evening: “Tomorrow, I’m being declared bankrupt. Even though I’m not bothered. I’ve known it’s coming, going bankrupt, because I took him [Andre] to court. He’s the worst person ever.”

She allegedly added: “I f****** can’t wait. I’m better off. I know I shouldn’t say it. It’s good for me. It’s better than paying two-and-a-half grand a month to f****** HMRC. I’m not worried.”

In 2015 Price launched a privacy claim against singer Andre - her husband between 2005 and 2009 - which was settled in the High Court. The details of the settlement were never disclosed but Price paid £200,000 in advance as security costs.

The three-time-married of mother-of-five was reportedly drinking wine from a can as she talked to commuters while travelling between King’s Cross and Ebbsfleet.

Price, who met Andre on I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004, is said to have bragged: “I’ve done the jungle twice, why would I do it again? I’ve done Big Brother, won that, Strictly I would never do, they don’t offer enough money.

Dancing On Ice, unless they pay right, never do it. They don’t pay enough anymore.

“All the time you take off to do these shows, it’s not worth my while. I earn more money not doing it.”

The failed pop star reportedly admitted she would have liked to have competed in The X Factor: Celebrity but “they wouldn’t have me”.

Price apparently said she had missed out on the chance to become an influencer as social media was not around at the height of her fame. She is quoted as saying: “If I had Facebook, Instagram when I started, I wonder where I’d be now.”

She allegedly added: “Who wants to f***ing buy into me? I’m on the train to Ebbsfleet drinking Marks and Spencer’s f***ing wine, darling. And I’m in economy. On my own, no entourage, no PA. Cheap cheap like a budgie me.”

Price’s various business ventures include a range of equestrian clothes, a series of best-selling novels and a range of nutritional supplements.

Price dodged bankruptcy last December but has failed to keep up with her repayment plan.

She recently had both her pink cars reposessed and is currently starring in her own reality TV series My Crazy Life on Quest Red TV, which has seen her renovating her Sussex mansion in order to sell the property.

Price is mother to 17-year-old Harvey, whose father is footballer Dwight Yorke, 14-year-old son Junior and 12-year-old Princess with Andre and five-year-old son Jett and four-year-old daughter Bunny with third husband Kieran Hayler.
