Upon arrival, we didn’t know whether to be more excited about the sparkling treasure chest or the huge plates of cakes that greeted us – Come on, who doesn’t love a scone? After perusing the masses of glitter, including phone cases, blinged-up bags, rings, bracelets and shoes, we sat down with the incredibly petite Katie for a super quick chat about the new range, her burgeoning beauty business and what it’s like watching I’m a Celeb now.
On the KP Rocks Collection
Katie got involved because, quite simply, she loves anything that sparkles. “I’ve got it everywhere. Even in my car, around the air vents, I’ve got diamante. It’s just me.”
Her favourite pieces from the collection are the phone covers and the tiger designs “I really like Roberto Cavalli, so I was inspired by that”. Katie explained that she went to the Love Lemonade office and picked out everything herself. “I would have had it all if they had let me”
On the Pricey free salon
Katie has a burgeoning beauty career behind closed doors: “I call it the Pricey free salon and all my friends come round and have spray tans and have their nails and brows done. I’m trained in it all. They love it” She even told us that she had X Factor contestant, Rylan round before the live shows and she waxed his eyebrows for him – but apparently the wax was a bit too hot. “His eyebrows were all red!”
On Jungle Life
Katie spoke to us about her time in the I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here jungle too. We wanted to know whether it felt like an age ago? “It’s like it was yesterday, I can look at them and I know what they’re feeling and what they’re smelling. I can remember how cold that water was” and she revealed that it’s so much harder than we think “nothing dries, it’s all damp and after each task you have to trek about an hour back, no one gives you a towel and I hate being cold!” Katie even reminded us of her fish eyeball meal “It tasted like the smell of a fish market” (Bleurgh) But she confessed that she still would go back into the jungle again. “I always say, third time lucky!”
We blagged ourselves a quick photo and she was gone, leaving a trail of rhinestones behind her…leaving us to polish off those scones. Thanks, Katie!
