Katie Price spends £10k to clean up messy home after avoiding bankruptcy

She was left red-faced in November after revealing her home is still a mess - 10 months after she was first criticised over its untidiness. 

And after avoiding bankruptcy, Katie Price is turning her attention to her messy mansion and wants to embark on a huge clean-up mission in a bid to make a 'fresh start' for 2019. 

According to The Sun, the mother-of-five, 40, has splashed out over £10,000 on re-vamping her home to 'make it perfect again'.

Sources told the publication: 'Katie wants next year to be a completely fresh start and she’s starting with her house.'

They detailed how the former glamour model has spent £10,000 'if not more' on restoring her home to a cleaner state, with Katie 'having new wallpaper throughout' and picking out new furniture to give her abode a 'fresh feel'. 

Insiders added: 'Katie knows she let the house go over the past few months but now she’s working hard at getting back on top of her game, and having the mansion looking good again will help.'

In recent months, Katie has been plagued by financial woes and had been battling bankruptcy, following a downward spiral that saw her seek treatment at The Priory.

At the beginning of December, Katie avoided bankruptcy after coming to an agreement over her tax bill and a close pal allegedly loaned the star £22,000 to bail her out. 

Earlier this month, the High Court was told that the petition to make her bankrupt had been dismissed.

Katie's case was heard at a specialist insolvency and companies court in Central London, which estimated her total debts ranged from £250,000 to £500,000.

She was not at the court for the hearing, which lasted less than two minutes.

Deputy Insolvency and Companies Court Judge Middleton said: 'This case has been dismissed after the parties concerned reached an out of court agreement.

Court costs of £881 are to be paid in accordance with the terms of the IVO (Individual Voluntary Agreement).'

Outside court, a spokesman for HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) added: 'We are not the lead creditors in this case, but we are happy with the agreement. I can't tell you who the other creditors are in this case at the minute.

'We don't have a specific date for the first payment and the amount has not been decided. Katie Price was not obliged to turn up to this court hearing today.'

In August, Price was given 12 weeks to come up with a payment plan to pay her £22,000 tax bill. Speaking after the August hearing, her representative said: 'Katie is aware of the hearing and is working with her advisers to resolve her current financial issues.

'She hopes to be in a position to do so and reach agreement with her creditors.'

In October she got a stay of execution on whether she has to declare bankruptcy or not whilst the taxman assesses her plan for entering the IVA.

A decision had been due then but she was given an extension. The IVA is a formal agreement which allows people to pay back creditors at an affordable rate.

If HMRC did not accept her proposal then she would have been declared bankrupt, made insolvent and a trustee would have been appointed to sell off her assets to raise capital for the creditors.
