Quickie divorce for Katie and Peter

Quickie divorce for Katie and Peter

The three-year marriage of Katie Price and Peter Andre came to an end in just over a minute today at London’s High Court.

The glamorous showbiz couple became just the second to last names on a list of 21 seeking a “quickie divorce”.

After the names were read out, District Judge Bradley pronounced decrees nisi and later divulged that both parties had cross- petitioned on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour.

The judge said none of the papers involved would be released because Andre’s lawyers had made an application to keep them confidential until a full hearing into whether they should be made public.

Price, 31, also known as glamour model Jordan, and singer Andre, 36, chose to divorce each other, filing cross decrees under “Price K v Andrea PJ” – Andre’s real name.

The pair married in 2005 after meeting as contestants on 'I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' the year before.

They went on to star together in a series of reality shows for ITV2.

They have two children together – son Junior, four, and daughter Princess Tiaamii, two.

Price also has a son, Harvey, aged seven, with footballer Dwight Yorke.

There is to be a hearing in front of the same judge their afternoon when Andre’s lawyers will argue that the papers in the case should not be released.
