Katie Price has ruled out auditioning for 'The X Factor' after recently being linked to the new series
Katie Price has ruled out auditioning for 'The X Factor'.
While it was recently claimed the reality TV star's close pal Simon Cowell had personally asked her to take part in the show as a contestant, Katie - who has previously dabbled in a music career - insists she is not good enough to try out.
She wrote in her Now magazine column: "It's true that I'm a good friend of Simon's and it's also true that I'm a huge fan of the show but I'm afraid I won't be standing in front of the four judges."
And one group who will be relieved about that are Katie's children - Harvey, 12, Junior, nine, and Princess, seven, from previous relationships, and 11-month-old Jett with estranged husband Kieran Hayler - as they don't rate her as a singer.
She explained: "My children's faces say it all when I sing at home and I know they are the most honest judges ever. It's a no from me."
Katie previously praised the new 'X Factor' judging panel, which will include feisty former Spice Girl Mel B.
She said: "I like Mel because she says it exactly how it is. There's no beating around the bush or massaging egos. If Mel thinks you're rubbish, she'll tell you. It will be refreshing to hear her comments.
"Personally, I don't think she'll be all about the outfit or style wars like some judges. She'll be more passionate about the talent and concentrating on the contestants."
