Katie Price is “desperate” to do the next series of The Masked Singer – and is even hoping it could help launch a singing career.
The 43 year old, who recently revealed that she wants to train as a paramedic, is no stranger to the microphone. And earlier this week, she was caught on camera performing a rendition of Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody whilst on holiday in Thailand.
A source has told OKAY! that Katie is a huge fan of the ITV singing competition, which sees famous faces battle it out with their singing talents while their identity is hidden by a mask, and has previously “begged” producers to let her on the show.

One viewer wrote: “It’s the fact she’s holding the mic like she can really sing for me”, whilst another added: “Omg tone deaf.”
Others came to Katie’s defense, saying: “She’s had a few shandys and on karaoke! Give her a break!”
Another commented: “She’s enjoying herself that’s all that matters.”
Katie has previously teased her hopes to appear on The Masked Singer.
Taking to Instagram Stories last year, she filmed herself on the sofa with Carl. She said: “We are watching the Mask [Masked Singer] and he genuinely thinks I can’t sing.”
He brutally replied: “You are an absolute s**t singer” – before she tried to prove him wrong.
He added: “Producers, if you are watching and you need some s**t singers there is one here gagging for it. I mean you’ve got to admire her for trying, she actually believes she can sing.”
In February 2021, she also revealed she’s building a recording studio at her home.
She told FUBAR Radio: “I’ve now bought myself a studio for YouTube. So I’m going to do my like karaoke versions, acoustic versions of songs I want to do.
“II’m not giving up. I’m going to do it… If you don’t want to hear it, don’t tap on and listen!”
