If you thought Katie Price’s music career was over, well, you might be wrong, as the star has been in the studio.
The former glamour model teased a return to music after she hit the studio with Scarlett Lee, a former X Factor contestant who finished as runner-up to Dalton Harris on the show in 2018.
And it seems we might not have long to wait to hear what they’ve been cooking up, as the duo hinted at a Christmas tune.
Tagging her location as The Cave Music Studio in Fareham, Hampshire, mum-of-five Katie shared a snap from the booth.
Wearing headphones and holding a notepad and pen, the I’m A Celebrity icon was in full on popstar mode, standing behind the mic as she discussed ideas with Scarlett.
‘Dreams do come true. Never give up. Scarlett you are beautiful inside and out and an amazing singer and songwriter. I’m just so excited,’ Katie wrote on her Instagram Story, sharing her joy at being in a recording studio once more.

Later on her own Instagram Story, Scarlett, 25, posted a pic of the vocals they’d been laying down, but kept the suspense by covering the screen with a Santa hat sticker.
Scarlett wrote: ‘Everyone loves a rumour. We love a Christmas song, don’t we @katieprice @thecave.music.’
With Christmas a mere 63 days away (who’s counting?) it might not be long at all until we get to hear some of Katie’s new music, although it remains uncertain how it will sound – are we getting an All I Want For Christmas is You kinda bop? Or an East 17 Stay Another Day ballad? Time will tell…

This isn’t the first time that Katie, 44, has hinted at returning to music, as she recently told fans she was ‘getting ready’ to drop a full album.
Re-posting a clip from friend DJ Rick Live as he played some of her old tunes in Ibiza, Katie wrote on Instagram in September: ‘Getting ready to release a new album soooon, @iamricklive thanks for your patience,’ followed by a love heart emoji.
For a refresher, Katie’s music career reached mega heights in 2005 when she was the runner-up in the selection contest to represent the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest.

She missed out to Javine and the song Touch My Fire, which finished 22nd with 18 points.
The following year, Katie and then-husband Peter Andre released their collaboration album, A Whole New World.
Katie and Peter recorded the songs in their private recording studio in Surrey after the Mysterious Girl hitmaker was dropped from his label and decided to put his family over his career.

However, the former couple released their joint album and it sold 100,000 copies in the UK, but failed to achieve much success, so Katie and Peter were dropped from new label, Absolute Marketing and Universal Music Group.
Then, in July 2010, Katie released Free to Love Again, a non-album single.
Speaking about the song’s release at the time, she said: ‘I’m not a singer, this is just something that I’m doing for fun. It’s not like I’m worried about getting a chart position or number one, this is purely for fun. Whether people like it or not, I’m doing it.’
She loved music so much that she tried again in 2017, releasing her single I Got U, which failed to make it big.
Her most recent attempt was in 2020 with a track called Heartbroken.
So, could her upcoming Christmas tune with Scarlett be Katie’s moment?
