Katie is set to wed for the 3rd time

Katie Price has compared herself to late actress Elizabeth Taylor after becoming engaged for the 3rd time.

The mum-of-three plans to marry Argentinian toyboy Leandro Penna.

Katie, 33, says she can see similarities between herself and Hollywood legend Liz, who married 8 times before passing away at the age of 79 last year.

‘Husband number three? Will it last? I’m not surprised by people’s reactions,’ says Katie.

‘I was watching a programme about Liz Taylor recently and thought about how similar we are, falling in love so fast and deep.’

Katie had vowed never to marry again after splitting with exes Peter Andre, 39, and Alex Reid, 36.

But it seems Leandro, 26, has managed to persuade her to change her mind.

Leandro and I haven’t set a date yet and, for now, I just feel like a lucky girl to have his engagement ring on my finger,’ Katie writes in The Sun.

‘If life isn’t for livin’ and lovin’, then what is it for? And anyway – three is a lucky number.’
