  • Is it really all over for Katie and Peter?

    Katie Price and Peter Andre are going full speed ahead and aiming for a ‘quickie’ divorce, according to a source close to the glamour model.

    Despite rumours flying that the whole incident is simply a publicity stunt, the reality TV couple are set for a record speed divorce, after Katie has reportedly ‘given up the fight’.

    The mother-of-three hit the catwalk at last week’s Clothes Show Live and despite working it for the cameras, is apparently feeling the pressure from recent events, admitting backstage at the style event she felt ‘sh** and ugly’. ‘I haven’t felt this low in ages,’ she said.

    One source who spoke to the News of the World this weekend revealed the strain Katie is under saying: ‘It’s sad, but she’s given up the fight.
    ‘She now accepts she’s never getting Peter back, and is ready to move on with her life. It hasn’t been easy, but she knows it’s necessary to enable her to eventually get on with things.’

    Divorce proceedings are already in full swing with both Peter and Katie meeting with divorce lawyers last week. Katie has signed up top divorce lawyer Fiona Shackleton (who represented Sir Paul McCartney and Madonna in their divorce cases) to fight her corner.

    Meanwhile, Peter is reportedly applying for a decree nisi with the understanding that he will cite ‘unreasonable behaviour’ as the cause for the split.

    While the situation is taking its toll on the glamour model, Peter too is buckling under the pressure. ‘I’ve never seen him like this before. He’s a mess,’ said one source after Peter met with lawyers last week. ‘He came out afterwards and just broke down. It was the realisation that his family life is never going to be the same.’
