Sleb Safari: Katie Price is saying yes to the dress

THE Pricey is engaged! Katie said yes to her Chosen Stallion – aka Carl Woods – and all’s right in the world once more.

You don’t become a businesswoman, equestrian, author, raffler of hair extensions and wedding day devotee without knowing when to call in a professional and Sleb Safari has already curated its mood board lest it be called upon to plan, officiate, DJ, or even cater this wedding, such is its skill set.

Celebrity smut hounds have been anticipating the marriage proposal for quite some time and, truth be told, Sleb Safari is on its second mood board, the first having been shelved in the new year, despite Katie/a source having told all and sundry that the couple were planning a Christmas “bargain-style” lockdown wedding celebration.

“With all the restrictions, there’s no way she can pull a big wedding, or go somewhere tropical,” the source had told Heat.

“She’ll do whatever it takes to put something small and safe together over the Christmas period, even if it means her and Carl saying ‘I do’ in the garden with a couple of heat lamps, and her kids watching from the house.”

We don’t know when Carl popped the question but they broke the news last week and you can enjoy “exclusive quotes, pictures and videos and much more” in this week’s edition of OK! Magazine.


A post shared by Katie Price (@katieprice)

Katie shared a little bit of information with OK! ahead of time, just to whet our appetites.

"We’d spoken about it a lot, so I knew he was going to, I just didn’t know when. It was amazing. Carl asked my mum and dad for permission – and Junior."

She added: "It’s refreshing to be with a man that if I decided I never wanted to work again, he’d look after me. I just love him."

Katie has previously spoken about Carl’s indifference to celebrity, telling The Sunday Times, "He’s got his own money, he’s not interested in fame and hates anything to do with Jordan.”

You might recognise Carl from Love Island 2016 and ITV2’s Killer Camp 2018.

Katie’s previous wedding dresses have been traditional so Sleb Safari hopes she goes all out this time and raids her photo call dressing up box. The Pricey and bridesmaids would have their pick of a unicorn outfit, both parts of a pantomime horse, the inflatable lips dress and umpteen other fun outfits (funfits?) Katie has worn to promote her very many business ventures. OK! magazine’s front page for the wedding special edition would be a classic.

All that remains to do is wish Katie and Carl a marriage full of love and kindness.


Mads Mikkelsen and Daniel Craig have active imaginations

Mads Mikkelsen as Le Chiffre in Casino Royale

DANISH actor Mads Mikkelsen has been reminiscing about brainstorming with Daniel Craig for the torture scene in Bond film Casino Royale.

“There were a few times when Daniel Craig and I went a little far at the table discussing what the scene might be able to do," he told Vulture.

"It was a scene where I tortured him and he’s stripped naked to the chair, which was kind of radical. We’ve never seen Bond naked, and we’ve never seen him that fragile, and then obviously there are some undertones with the rope.

"We were discussing how to approach it, and we just went further out with something that was really brutal and insane. One idea was I actually cut him up somewhere, and he had to suffer with that for a while. At a certain point, director Martin Campbell was just smiling and said, 'Boys, come back to the table. This is a Bond film. We can’t go there.' We were lost in our indie world, right?"

Wow, as if that scene wasn't bad enough, they wanted to make it worse.

Kim Kardashian's DMs are blowing up

Kim Kardashian 

KIM Kardasian and Kanye West are divorcing and already her DMs are blowing up and she’s being courted by “everyone from royal family members to A-list actors to athletes to billionaire CEOs,” a source has told Page Six.

Naturally she doesn’t want to rush into another relationship and wants to focus on her four children and let romance happen naturally. Sleb Safari is paraphrasing here, can you tell?

The source tossed out another gem, detailing what is a deal breaker for Kim.

“She certainly wouldn’t want anyone to be with her for the spotlight,” and what she really seeks is “someone who values privacy.”

That's a pretty strange request since the Kardashians and privacy go together like cats and swimming pools.
