Katie Price has landed a new series exploring her so-called Mucky Mansion and the renovations she’s planned to bring it back to its former glory.
The star, 43, and her family are set to feature in the new Channel 4 series starting 26 January, which will begin with Katie finding out how much the manor is worth now.
After purchasing the £2million home back in 2014 from former Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude, the property is thought to have gone down in value due to its deteriorated condition.
The star has previously shown fans a preview of how the house looks, with many shocked to see it falling apart.
Katie's West Sussex mansion has been sitting nearly-untouched for a long time too, as she's been staying in Essex with her partner Carl Woods, 32, and her eldest son Harvey, 19, who is now at a residential college.
The 19-room house is full of bad memories for the reality star and has been left uninhabitable after being subject to vandalism.
However, the new series will see the former glamour model try to give it a makeover, addressing the green pool and messy rooms filled with unorganised belongings.
In 2019, Katie took to YouTube to give fans a house tour, which revealed a swimming pool full of green water that hasn’t been used in years.
And last year, her children Jett and Bunny – who she shares with ex Kieran Hayler – wanted to go on a little frog hunt and they didn't have to go far.
In another video, Katie showed her kids running down swimming pool to search for frogs and worms – a task that didn't take too long.
Fans will also see Katie tidy up the house, which has become overrun with belongings over the years.
On an episode of Through The Keyhole in 2018 viewers saw rooms filled with piles of clothes and bags, which were scattered all over the floors.
However, the Mucky Mansion has had a lot to contend with over the years – from fires, to burglaries and issues with disrepair.
Katie bought the Mucky Mansion in the midst of having secured numerous endorsement deals but failed to upkeep the home and was forced to move elsewhere and rent at one point because of its shabby state.
A fire also broke out at the property in 2020, adding to the damage of the house.
The incident happened after the Mucky Mansion had already suffered a string of unlucky situations, including a break in from thieves as well as sanitary issues with the pool and a broken cesspit.
Last year, Katie also revealed that fly tippers had dumped rubbish on the garden of the estate.
"This is my house that I don't live in at the moment because of all the fly tipping that was done," the TV personality explained on her YouTube channel.
"Everything was stolen, it was burgled twice in a row and my ceiling has collapsed where they left the tap on. I hate it, I just hate it."
However, Katie is ready to turn the 10-acre land into "a home" once more.
Speaking about her new show, she said: “My house has been called the Mucky Mansion in the past, but it’s not that anymore, I’m making it a home.
"I’m getting my hands dirty and doing a lot of the work myself and, with the help of my amazing family and some brilliant friends, I’m putting the past behind me and rebuilding.
"My house is a bit like my life, it’s being put back together like I’m being put back together.”
In one teaser clip for the new documentary, Katie can be seen shopping with Harv for wallpaper for her eight year old son Jett's room.
As Harvey asks for 7 feet of the astroturf, Katie says: "We're actually using this for wallpaper. So no one has ever come here and asked for that for wallpaper."
"I love being creative, sometimes you've got to think outside the box," she adds.
A second teaser shows the star on a crane lift as she attempts to help while holding a brown pot before accidentally dropping it.
The pot then travels down her roof, chipping part of it off, before breaking on the floor below.
Channel 4 will also do a deep dive into Katie's journey to healing herself in a second show called Katie Price: Trauma and Me.
Katie is currently in therapy after beinghanded a 16-week jail sentence , suspended for 12 months, after pleading guilty to drink-driving, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance following a crash in September.
