Katie Price to create own YouTube channel for ballads

Katie Price plans to set up her own channel on YouTube featuring her singing power ballads.

The 38-year-old mother-of-five has made disastrous attempts at pop stardom, including missing out on representing the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005 when she entered TV talent show 'Making Your Mind Up' to find that year's entry.

Despite her failures, Katie isn't planning on hanging up her microphone any time soon and is going to use the video sharing website to showcase her love of ballads.

In an interview with Closer magazine, she said: "I'm going to set up my own YouTube channel, singing covers of ballads. I'm a frustrated pop star."

The wannabe singer released a single 'Free to Love Again' in 2010 which she said was "just for fun" as she claimed she "wasn't bothered" what number it charted at. But the single was hardly promoted or given airplay and she was criticised for lip-syncing during 'live' performances - it landed in at number 60 on the UK single chart.

Katie later admitted on 2015's 'Celebrity Big Brother' that her only regret in life was auditioning for Eurovision.

She sang a song called 'Not Just Anybody' wearing a skin-tight pink catsuit and since then she has starred in the 'Deja Vu' pop video made by her fellow 'Celebrity Big Brother' housemate Kavana.

Also renowned for singing a Whitney Houston ballad or two at the end of her nightclub PAs, Katie released a duet album 'A Whole New World' with her ex-husband Peter Andre back in 2006 for charity. The album debuted at number 20 on the UK Albums Chart and achieved platinum status.

And the plucky businesswoman, who is no stranger to TV appearances - having been crowned winner of 'Celebrity Big Brother' and starring on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' - has now got her sights set on being a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent'.

She added: "I'd love to be a judge on 'BGT' - Simon Cowell call me!"
