KATIE Price is so skint she’s had to rope in her boyfriend’s mates to help paint her mucky mansion.

The reality star also has a new builder working on her £2m Sussex home as she desperately races to get it ready for sale.

Insiders tell The Sun Online that the former glamour model, 41, is stripping down the glittery walls and outrageous décor and repainting everything in neutral colours so she can sell it more easily.

It’s just a few days until Katie is due back in court over her bankruptcy hearing – and insiders say she’s keen to save money wherever she can.

“Katie’s house makeover costs have spiralled out of control and have ended up as way more than she expected,” says the source.

“She’s worried she won’t have the funds to finish it off, and really wants the house to be sorted out.

She’s given up the idea of making it into a wedding venue and now thinks that selling it will be the best option."

As a result, Katie's fella Kris Boyson has come to her aid.

“Kris has got a friend around to paint the walls and make it look a bit better," continued the insider. "He’s been in there while they were away as Katie’s sick of it looking like a building site.”


Katie recently horrified fans with a look inside the house, which was originally undergoing a makeover to turn it into a wedding venue – another money-spinning idea to get her out of debt.

She took her YouTube show on a tour of the property, revealing: "I'm having my new house built and while they're doing that I'm living in my annexe.”

At the time, a source told The Sun Online: "She was hoping to move back into the house before Christmas but work has ground to a halt, really.”

However, there’s still a chance that she could be bankrupt before Christmas after failing to pay back spiralling debts.

Katie’s due back in court on 27 November to face claims she’s failed to pay back £12,000 a month as part of an IVA agreement.

Katie’s PR had no comment when approached by The Sun Online.
