Katie Price: Celeb mum of the year?

Katie Price has been shortlisted for Celebrity Mum of the Year, despite her very public marriage break-up.

The controversial glamour model was nominated by the public alongside 19 other celebrity mums for this year’s Bounty Celebrity Mum of the Year.

It has been a turbulent year for Katie – she split from pop star Peter Andre, her husband of three-and-a-half years.

She also ran a marathon, published a best-selling novel, was dropped by her management company of five years and caused offence with insensitive comments about her breast surgery scars.

Katie is up against Samantha Cameron who had to deal with the tragic death of her son Ivan earlier this year.

Mrs Cameron, who supported husband David at the recent Conservative party conference in Manchester, also has to look after her two young children.

Other nominees include three former Spice Girls Mel B, Emma Bunton, and Geri Halliwell.

However, there is no room this year for Victoria Beckham who might have slipped off the nation’s radar since her move to Los Angeles.

Last year’s winner Suzanne Shaw joins Myleene Klass, Tess Daly, Sophie Ellis Bextor and Charlotte Church on the shortlist.

Kerry Katona – who was dropped by supermarket Iceland after she was exposed taking drugs by the News of World – failed to make this year’s shortlist.
