KATIE Price has sparked debate after announcing she is to adopt a Nigerian orphan after a visit to a Nail salon.
The former glamour girl turned reality star revealed the strange news on ITV’s This Morning on Monday.
Price, 40 claimed that she has already started the process and was ‘planning’ on jetting out to the poverty-stricken African nation.
Katie, who became a household name after falling in love with Peter Andre on 2004’s I’m A Celebrity claimed she planned to go to Nigeria last weekend ‘but had to cancel’ as it was ‘her turn’ to have the kids.
A stunned Phillip and Holly Willoughby listened on as Katie revealed: “I always said I wanted to adopt an orphan. I don’t care if they have disabilities or what age they are.”
“I feel like I can offer them a place.” added Price.
The Pricey said she was inspired after talking to a woman at her nail salon who works with an orphanage in Nigeria.
“She was telling me how she was looking after this orphan and I told her I always wanted to adopt.”
“It is SO hard to adopt over here, I’ve looked into it for ages. The thing is, it’s easy to adopt abroad but it’s not easy to bring to them back in the country.”
Katie will follow in the footsteps of Madonna, who famously adopted a child from Malawi in the mid-noughties.
Madonna and then-husband Guy Ritchie adopted a 13-month-old African boy called David Banda.
