Katie Price is hoping to have people keeping up with the Prices as she emulates Kris Jenner by becoming a “momager” figure for her brood, a source claims to new magazine.
The reality TV star and former model, 42, has used her fame to amass millions of followers and rake in a fortune over the years – and she is keen for her five kids to follow in her footsteps.

The road users statistically most likely to cause casualties: Whether you're a driver, cyclist or pedestrian, find out who poses you the greatest threat
The report uses road casualty data for 2019 and splits road users into cars, HGVs, vans, buses and coaches, small- and larger-capacity motorcycles and scooters, cyclists and pedestrians. Here's what the data tells us... Which mode of transport is most involved in fatal accidents?Cars are more likely to be involved in collisions that cause a death in Britain - more than any other vehicle type, the data confirms. With cars making up the greatest percentage (82 per cent) of vehicles on the road, this is to be expected.
Katie – who is mum to Harvey, 18, with Dwight Yorke, Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with Peter Andre and Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, with Kieran Hayler, who she recently divorced – is said to be planning to use her experience to help them maximise their potential while avoiding the pitfalls of fame, inspired by Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kris.
new magazine's source explains: “Katie sees herself as a bit of a Kris Jenner-type momager. As the kids are getting older, she’s having to manage them.
“The kids have had their own paid collaborations. There’s a lot of celebrity kids out there, that’s part and parcel of the industry. But they’re well-rounded kids. They listen to Katie and know she knows what she’s talking about. © Instagram/Katie Price Katie Price has been accused of using Photoshop to alter her snap with her daughters
“Princess is like a mini-Katie and Junior is like a mini-Pete. They’ve taken the best parts of their parents.”
Businessman puts fleet of 130 classic British cars on display
Richard Usher, who made his money selling repair firm Auto Windscreens in 2001 for £110million, has launched the Great British Car Journey , where visitors can pay to see a range of classic cars. In addition to the 130 cars which are on permanent display, a further 32 vehicles can be driven by visitors for a fee.The cars were bought by Mr Usher and fellow backers of the project over a period of around four years. They are all at the firm's base in Ambergate, Derbyshire. Stunning images show cars including the Austin Allegro, a 1961 Morris Minor and an incredibly rare 1982 Vauxhall Chevette.
The source adds that Katie doesn’t plan to “micromanage” the kids’ careers, rather she wants to “oversee things” to make sure everything is going well.

And with the kids’ growing profiles, it’s likely more deals will come rolling in. Princess, who has 380,000 followers on Instagram and 49,000 on YouTube, is making a name for herself as a social media influencer.
She posts make-up tutorials and dance routines, sometimes done with her famous mum and dad.
“Princess is following in Katie’s footsteps,” says the source. “She likes to wear make-up and fake tan, and they’ve been attacked in the past but ultimately she’s like every teen. Princess likes to bring normality to her channel, which is what Katie does too.”
Almost 2MILLION motorists could be driving illegally with expired MOTs
Even the very last cars to have benefited from six-month MOT test extension offered by the Government - which expired on 1 August 2020 - should now have been had their vehicles tested. However, figures suggest that one in five (19.5 per cent) motors that had an extension on their roadworthiness test last year have yet to be assessed since, which equates to some 1.86 million vehicles. And around 600,000 are likely unroadworthy, based on average MOT failure rates.

Meanwhile, the source claims Junior is more likely to use Instagram, where he has 400,000 followers, to champion causes like his mother’s anti-trolling initiative.
“Junior’s really compassionate – about Harvey, trolling, bullying and mental health. He’s following Kate’s lead in that sense. He wants to make a change.”
Jett and Bunny could soon get in on the action too – and Katie, who is currently dating Carl Woods, has already proved Bunny has star quality by sharing clips of her singing. © Instagram Katie Price says son Harvey is finally losing weight
new's source says: “Bunny and Jett are still young but they’re showing signs they’ll be following in the same direction. Bunny more so than Jett. She likes to perform.”
However, the source says that like Kardashian clan matriarch Kris, 65, Katie will be there to make sure her brood keep their feet firmly on the ground, no matter how famous they become.
They add: “Katie has exposed them to the nasty side of showbiz. They’re very streetwise about the entertainment industry. When it comes to trolling, Katie keeps a close watch.

Fans will definitely watch with interest as the Price kids’ careers develop under Katie’s guidance.
“Katie and the kids have more work coming up,” the source says. “Both Junior and Princess are into their fashion. Pals can see Junior becoming a presenter in the future. Things are going really well and Katie loves being a bit of a momager.”
