Katie Price lands new three-part documentary series where she learns to be a paramedic
KATIE Price has landed a new three-part documentary series where viewers will see the former glamour model learn to be a paramedic.
The 42-year-old's latest TV project comes after the success of her deeply personal BBC documentary, Katie Price: Harvey and Me.
The candid one-off followed Katie and her disabled son Harvey in a crucial year of his life as he turned 18 and became an adult.
In the wake of the doc's triumph with viewers, the former Loose Women panellist has be signed up to front another series, which will see her train to become a Volunteer Emergency Responder.
The TV personality has previously expressed her wish to train as a paramedic in 2017 – and revealed in 2019 that she had signed up to a five-year course.
However, her plans to train as a paramedic got put on hold – and now she will enrol in a six day crash course to become a Volunteer Emergency Responder for her new programme with Little Gem Productions.
The training Katie will receive means she wouldn't be an official paramedic, but will be allowed to work alongside UK ambulance trusts, where volunteers give up their free time to work shifts alongside paramedics.
At the end of the course, she'd be qualified to attend 999 incidents – with the only exceptions being maternity, paediatrics under eight-years-old and mental health calls.
A source told The Sun Online: "It'll be along the lines of Emma Willis's show, Delivering Babies, or Famous and Fighting Crime.
"Katie will learn all the real life skills she needs and they won't go easy on her because she's a celebrity.
"It's something Katie's wanted to do for years and she's really looking forward to filming next month."
A rep for Katie told us: "Katie has made no secret of her dreams of becoming a paramedic.
"It is true these dreams are set to become a reality as we are engaged in talks to film Katie's own documentary following her training and on the front line as she responds to emergency calls."
It is not yet known which channel will air the series nor when it will go into production.
Production company Little Gem has produced E4's Five Star Hotel, as well as documentaries Surviving the Virus: My Brother & Me for BBC One.
They also produced the Katie Piper-fronted series Never Seen A Doctor for Channel 4.
