OK! has enlisted a group of celebs to clear out their wardrobes on eBay to help raise funds for Refuge. Among them, Katie Price. As it’s all for a good cause, we really hope it goes better than some of Pricey’s previous efforts to auction off her personal items.
In 2004, Katie was invited as a guest of honour to a charity ball in aid of a local hospital, along with then-boyfriend Scott Sullivan and his millionaire father. Things were going well enough until the auction portion of the evening began, which was when Katie’s table started getting a little bit rowdy.
It culminated in Katie demanding to go on stage, interrupting the celebrity auctioneer by grabbing the mic and announcing that she would be auctioning off the knickers she was wearing to the highest bidder. Unfortunately, the item didn’t generate anything like the sort of interest she’d hoped it would and Katie eventually stormed off the stage calling the room a bunch of “tight bastards” after Scott’s dad ended up winning with his bid of £50.
We have no idea if he genuinely wanted a pair of his son’s girlfriend’s keks, or if he was just trying to spare her further embarrassment. All we know is that Katie held up her end of the bargain. As anyone who saw her riding the dodgems later that night found out, she was no longer in possession of any pants.
