Showbiz legend Katie Price has come under fire for making a major blunder just days into her podcasting career.
The 45-year-old is no stranger to turning her hand to an array of different careers throughout her nearly 30 years in the business.
From eye-popping Page 3 shoots and reality TV shows to becoming a successful children’s author and dabbing in politics, it seems there’s nothing she can’t do.

And now, with all those years of being in the showbiz industry, Katie is taking a plunge into the world of podcasting.
The mum-of-five is preparing to launch The Katie Price Show, which is due to be released this summer.
This week, Katie appeared at The Podcast Show in London where she chatted about her new job in a talk called Katie Price Does Podcasting!
But things took a rather awkward turn when she revealed she doesn't listen to podcasts herself despite launching her own one.
One journalist, Mary Mandefield, quizzed Katie about which podcasts she was currently enjoying in the lead-up to the launch of her own.
Katie replied: “You’ll hate me for this. I have never listened to a podcast in my life,’ she admitted, as the room roared with laughter from fellow attendees.
“I actually haven’t. I wouldn’t know how to download it,” she added.
She was then asked if she would listen to her own podcast, to which Katie shrugged and said: “No, I’m just going to know what I’m going to say.”
Footage of Katie’s admission soon went viral on Twitter and although tons of the audience were laughing, some weren't too impressed.
One follower fumed: "This is funny but also an absolute kick in the t**s for so many people who pour their blood, sweat and tears into creating audio. Invest in them."
Another added: "I mean, we know Katie Price loves a bandwagon. She will jump on anything she thinks will be popular for her even if it means she’s absolutely no idea what she’s doing.”
“This is typical and why I hate celebs launching podcasts. They have no passion or ambition for it, they just see it as the new thing to hang their flag on and get some cash,” a third social media user proclaimed.
While others were quick to show their support to Katie, with one writing: "Got to admire the honesty."
A second agreed: “I actually love this because podcasts can be so robotic and formulaic so hopefully hers will be a breath of fresh air! I will not be listening though.”
