Price to appear on 'The Apprentice'

Katie Price is being lined up to appear in next year's UK edition of 'The Apprentice'.

The glamour model was reportedly introduced to the show's boss Alan Sugar earlier this month, where she told of her desire to appear on the BBC business reality show, which sees 15 hopefuls battle it out for a position working in Alan's business empire.

'Britain's Got Talent' judge Amanda Holden brought Katie and Alan together, reportedly suggesting to the business mogul: "Why don't you hire Katie for one of the tasks next year?"

According to the Daily Star newspaper, Katie then told him: "I'm not the brightest, but I know how money works."

Alan was pleased with the suggestion, and reportedly told Katie - also known as Jordan: "I think you'd be an asset to the show."

Katie has amassed a reported £30m fortune from her modeling career, lucrative reality TV contracts, autobiographies and children's books as well as putting her name to a home wear collection and her own range of dressage goods.

'The Apprentice' is set to be screened over 12 weeks from June next year.
