Katie Price isnt liked because she doesnt mince her words, says CBB co-star

Legendary soul singer Alexander O'Neal has shared his thoughts about his former Celebrity Big Brother co-star, Katie Price.

Alexander and Katie both starred in the 2015 series alongside the likes of Katie Hopkins and Perez Hilton.

Talking about the reality TV icon, Alexander exclusively told the Daily Star: "We got on real good as a matter of fact I sang at her last wedding.

"We were actually going to do a duet together but it never happened. I would have loved to have done something with Katie Price, it would have been a nice experience.

He continued: "I admire her for overcoming the odds she's come, she had all those children and an autistic child and she is so dedicated to all of those kids. She is really a good mum.

"She gets bad rep a lot of the time because she tries to keep up with a generation which maybe isn't totally her generation but she kinda thinks it is because she dresses like that and behaves like that and gets all that stuff done.

He also explained why he thought people may not like her, and said: "But she is really a down-to-earth and good person and just because she doesn't mince her words a lot of people don't like her, in the UK especially they like you to be 'polite'.

"They prefer you to stand over there in that corner and keep your mouth shut and then you will just be just fine. But anyway, I enjoyed being around her and thought she was a very good and lovely person."

Daily Star has reached out to Katie for a comment.

Alexander, 68, is set to perform at the upcoming ‘Giants of Soul’ Tour alongside other big soul acts from the ’70s,'80s and ’90s.

Alexander said about his excitement for the upcoming tour: "This concept, Giants of Soul, I thought it was fantastic and it's great to be a part of it. I always look forward to coming to the UK, and England especially, my fans always give me so much love.

"London is my favourite city, we lived there for a while, I love England.

"All my fans here are so loyal and that's such a special thing to have, as they grow up with you and also grow older with you. It's good to see that we still have the same relationship."
