Katona wedding: Price refused bridesmaid role over 'too small' dress

Katie Price quit as Kerry Katona's bridesmaid because her dress was too small.

The mother-of-five - who gave birth to her latest child, Bunny, six weeks ago – reportedly refused to wear her bridesmaid gown at the reality TV star's nuptials to George Kay because it didn't fit, so she changed into a black and white playsuit and attended the wedding as a guest.

Did someone say bridesmaidzilla?

“Katie made it clear she was unhappy at having to wear the playsuit," a source said.

“She had a face on her like a bulldog chewing a wasp, she sat through the ceremony in silence and left straight after the meal.

“But there were no major dramas. Kerry and George were in bed by 11pm and weren’t even drunk.”

While Katie still went to the wedding, Kerry - who met the former glamour model when they both starred on the third series of reality TV show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2004 – was said to be "disappointed" that the model-turned-businesswoman wasn't her bridesmaid.

"Katie was not even prepared to consider wearing a dress that didn’t fit her properly.”

“As soon as she found out, she pulled out of her official role altogether,” the source said to the The Sun newspaper.

“Kerry was disappointed, but wasn’t going to let it ruin her day.”

Instead of Katie, Kerry's Atomic Kitten bandmate Liz McClarnon, Mel B's sister Danielle and Kerry's school friend Karen Belton all acted as her bridesmaids for her nuptials at Totworth Court Hotel, near Bristol, south west England, on Sunday.

The star was walked down the aisle by her son Max, six, and was joined by her daughters Molly, 13, Lily-Sue, 11, and Heidi, seven, from her two previous marriages, as well as the couple's five-month-old daughter Dylan-Jorge.

The couple also saw former Atomic Kitten bandmate Natasha Hamilton taken into hospital during the reception of their big day.

We knew it was too good to be true not to have at least some drama at a celebrity wedding!
