Katie Price insists she held the marriage together as long as she could

Within the space of a week, Jordan has gone from being labelled the worst mum in Britain to the most sympathised with.

In an emotional interview with Piers Morgan, shown last Saturday, she broke her silence about why her three-year marriage to Peter Andre, 36, failed.

Jordan, 31, is determined to shatter the perfect Pete myth.

Livid that hes portraying himself as a loving dad, shes told a trusted friend: He wanted a submissive housewife with no voice. He couldnt handle me being a celebrity. Its me whos left holding the babies he didnt try to save our marriage.

I nursed him through two breakdowns, but when I needed counselling after postnatal depression, was he there? No, he was in his beloved studio.

‘He spent all his time there, even when he was meant to be looking after the kids. Yes, I was away a lot working, but he wasnt looking after the kids nannies did that. Then Id look after them when I came home. All that time hed be in his studio.

People think Petes supportive, but he just switches it on for the cameras.’
