Jordan to edit Today show?

Katie Price, aka glamour model Jordan, is reportedly set to guest edit a seasonal episode of Radio 4’s Today programme.

A spokesman for the Today show claimed that the seasonal lineup hasn’t been “finalised” yet, but reports are swirling that Today producers have approached the well-endowed ex-Page 3 girl for one of the traditional Christmas guest slots.

According to the Times, a spokesman for Price said the idea was “intriguing”, and claimed there was “more to Katie than meets the eye”.

One of last year’s guest editors, crime novelist P.D James, grilled director general Mark Thompson on executive pay in the BBC, which caused a whirlwind of bad press for the Corporation.
