Former glamour model Katie Price says she has been taking part in a course to learn how to inject Botox and fillers into faces for the last six months
She has always been open about turning to surgeons to try and turn back the clock on ageing and often has her lip plumped up with filler and complexion smoothed out with Botox.
And now, the ex Page 3 star, 43, has shared that she has been training up as a cosmetic practitioner – so that she can offer to injections to paying customers who wish to refresh their faces.
It is understood that Katie enrolled on a course that has cost her £2,000 and she claims that despite the end of 2021 being busy for her – due to her court case, rehab stay and several holidays – that she has been training to administer the injectables for the past six months.
Katie’s latest career move may come as a surprise to some as she shared last month that she is afraid of needles.
She raised eyebrows when she winced in fear as she had her Covid booster jab and told that she “hates needles.”
The mum-of-five uploaded a clip of her having the injection and wrote alongside the post: “Got my booster today! I hate needles,” along with a few laughing emojis.
At the time, her followers scratched their heads at her admission due to her having lots of tattoos and procedures throughout the years.
One quizzed: “How can she be terrified of needles with all the surgery she has?

Another puzzled person added: “All the surgeries Botox etc she gets how can she be scared of needles?”
It is not the first time that Katie has announced her hopes to learn a new skill and at the start of last year she told that she was going to learn to become a voluntary first responder.
She had plans to take part in a six-day crash course in a bid to qualify as a voluntary first responder for her new programme, The Sun reported at the time.
It is not clear if Katie started the training after sharing her hopes to help out paramedics but her representative told the outlet: “Katie has made no secret of her dreams of becoming a paramedic.
If Katie had completed the training sessions she would have become qualified to attend emergency incidents – apart from 999 incidents for paediatrics under eight years old, mental health calls and maternity call outs.
Mirror has approached a rep for Katie Price for comment.
