Katie Price’s biggest Mucky Mansion scandals including burglaries and fly-tipping

Katie Price is starring in a new Channel 4 show, which focusses on her making over her headline-hitting Mucky Mansion.

The 43 year old's Horsham home has been subject to many headlines over the years, from falling victim to fly tippers to building work disasters.

Katie moved out of the mansion to have renovation work done on it, but has been unable to move back in as it's in disrepair.

As Katie's new reality show airs on Channel 4, OK! takes a look at the biggest scandals that have struck the star's Mucky Mansion over the years…

Floods

Mum-of-four Katie was left gutted in July 2020 as her home was reportedly broken into and flooded by thugs.

It was reported the intruders left a tap on above her kitchen, which caused the ceiling to collapse.

A source told The Sun at the time: "Katie is devastated.

"She is fearful that whoever has done this has a vendetta against her and even thinks it could be linked to her standing up against social media bullying trolls.

"This crime was committed to cause as much impact and personal upset as possible to Katie."

Break-ins

The Pricey's home has been broken-into three times in recent years. Katie's Mucky Mansion was burgled for a third time in February 2021.

She discovered the break-in when she returned to check on the progress and found out thieves had taken old photographs and hard drives.

Speaking in a YouTube video, Katie revealed: "This house was burgled. So much s*** has gone. Even hard drives have gone. Oh well, if anyone wants to go through my old photos go for it. If it makes you feel good."

Fires

Katie's home has also suffered three fires in two years. In 2018, the house was set ablaze by candles, which damaged the property.

Then in September 2020, the emergency services were called to the Mucky Mansion after a caretaker built a bonfire right next to the side of her property.

A neighbour reportedly called the fire brigade and the damage was cleared.

A source told The Sun at the time: "Katie was horrified when she was called about the fire – apparently the caretaker built a huge fire right next to the house, and when it went up the side of the house was covered in flames.

"It was a huge fire – a neighbour called the fire brigade thinking the house was burning down.

"It was put out in the end but you could see the smoke billowing across the road. She says the house is cursed.

"However, she's focused on her new life living with Carl now and there's so many good things going on in her life she's firmly focused on the future."

Katie's representative said at the time: "I can confirm there was a fire on the grounds but no serious damage to the building.

"Eyewitnesses reported to the emergency services that the the house was on fire but thankfully it was brought safely under control before any serious damage was done to the building."

Fly-tipping

The Mucky Mansion has also been targeted by fly-tippers since she moved out of the property.

In January 2020, Katie went into a furious rant on her Instagram stories to share her anger and accuse her builder of "f**king up" her home.

She said at the time: "While I am outside I am still heartbroken at what that…has done.

"Look at my poor tennis court he’s totally f***ed it by fly-tipping on it, its so sad what he has done to my grounds."

And the land has reportedly been left unliveable as a neighbour told the Mirror: "I don't think Katie is actually moving back into the house, she's just using it for storage.

"And anyway it's such a mess that it would probably cost her a few hundred thousand just to make the place liveable again.

"The land is littered with flytipping, the cesspit needs to be replaced, there's fire damage and the ceiling is still damaged from the flood, so there's damp all through the house as well."

Price crash

Katie reportedly paid £2million when she bought the pad from Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude in 2014.

The Mucky Mansion is since said to have lost £1million in value due to it being in disrepair.

A source told The Sun in January this year: "Katie knew it was in a bad state, but when she found out it's now worth less than a million – half its original value – while filming the new show, it was a real shock.

"She's going to do everything she can to get it back to it's former glory and make it worth something again. It's a real disaster for her."

Supernatural sightings

Katie has previously claimed she has photo evidence of spooky goings on in her Mucky Mansion.

She has told how she speaks to a psychic candle which has left her friends "in tears" with the things its unveiled.

Speaking on The Fellas podcast, Katie said of her house: "It's definitely haunted. I’ve got pictures… If you Google me and the little boy in the house. You’ll see me – I’ve got it on my Instagram – me taking a picture of a little boy sitting on my top floor.

"I’ve got pictures of a guy going through the mirror. I videoed it all and put it on Instagram you can Google it!"
