Katie Price 'asked to edit Today programme'
Tuesday 23 November 2010
Glamour model Katie Price has been asked to guest edit Radio 4's flagship Today programme, according to reports.
Guest editors are invited to take part in the show every year, between Christmas and new year, to inspire its broadcasts over the holiday season.
The television star turned bestselling author, formerly known as Jordan, could follow in the footsteps of previous guest editors Norman Tebbit, Richard Branson and Bono, according to The Times.
A spokesman for Price described the idea as "intriguing" and told the paper: "It would be a great project. There is more to Katie than meets the eye."
Crime writer PD James made headlines in her stint as a guest editor last year when she interviewed BBC boss Mark Thompson and took him to task over high levels of executive pay at the corporation.
