They seemed like an unlikely partnership when their whirlwind romance began on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here in 2004.
However, Katie Price has revealed that already had her sights set on first husband Peter Andre as a teenager, admitting that she kept his popstar poster on her wall.
On her return to Loose Women, the 39-year-old was talking about dating life after her third marriage to Kieran Hayler crumbled in 2017 amid more cheating claims.

Dating: During her Loose Women comeback on Wednesday, Katie Price admitted that she had a teenage crush on Peter Andre, before he was to become her first husband
Star-crossed lovers Katie, who was a glamour model best known as Jordan, and Peter, an Australian pop sensation, first met in the jungle and their marriage, which followed the next year, lasted four years.
Peter's hit Mysterious Girl catapulted him to fame in 1996, when the Page 3 girl would have been just 18.
Her partying ways were previously said to have put strain on the couple throughout their relationship, with Peter disapproving of Katie's alter-ego Jordan and her antics.
She now says that she had a teenage crush on the musician, with whom she now shares two children Junior and Princess.

Katie has one child Harvey, by footballer Dwight Yorke, and two more with her current husband Kieran, though their marriage is understood to be effectively over.
On Wednesday, MailOnline reported that Kieran was doing everything in his power to get the TV personality back.
However, on her return to Loose Women that day, Katie did not seem to have been wooed, instead talking about the prospect of dating.
Katie admitted that her fellow panellist Stacey Solomon had listed her on a dating app with hopes of meeting a new man, yet the model said it made her feel 'uncomfortable and awkward'.

Loose Women comeback: Katie returned to the Loose Women panel for the first time
'I would rather meet someone through friends,' she told the panellists. 'Organically. I couldn’t meet someone on an app, no way,' adding: 'I would let someone set me up on a blind date.'
She went on to say: 'I think when I’m ready to date I will put an ad out with a tick box and if they’ve got what I need then they can date me.'
Katie and Kieran endured a dramatic breakup late last year, when his third affair emerged - this time with the family nanny.
But a source told MailOnline that Kieran is keen to reconcile as he shared another gushing social media post on Tuesday night in a bid to show his devotion.
He took to Instagram stories, where he shared a snap of Katie posing against a wall in her glamorous gown, writing: 'Stunning.'

A source told MailOnline: 'The feelings are all one-sided. Katie still feels like the relationship is over - but obviously she doesn't have a nanny now so Kieran lives with her and he takes care of the children.
'Katie has a lot on her plate right now with her mother being ill, so that her mother and her children are her main focus.'
The post comes just a week after Kieran paid tribute to their fifth wedding anniversary, which seems odd given that they have split.
Katie has a lot on her plate right now after claiming she suffered a miscarriage just four days before finding out about Kieran's affair with nanny Nikki Brown.

Her mother Amy, has also been diagnosed with a terminal lung illness, called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
However Nikki, 40, later came forward to deny the accusations, and claim Katie simply wanted to place blame on someone else for the split.
Kieran was also hit by cheating allegations at the beginning of their romance, with Katie catching Kieran kissing her married ex-best friend Jane Pountney, 49, while on holiday in Cape Verde in May 2014.

Kieran has since spoken to The Sun about his troubles, confessing he was a sex addict who needed professional help.
The father-of-two, who married Katie in 2013, admitted: 'This wasn't a big love affair... I'm a sex addict and needed a thrill.'
Despite claiming she would be leaving him, the couple still live together, and in December, Katie admitted that she still 'loved' her husband.
She told Reveal: 'I still love him. The Kieran that I know, I love. The other Kieran [who cheats] is horrible. It's just so far away from the man I married.
'I can't believe he slept with those women. It proves he has an addiction. I know it's not me. He has an addiction because those women are disgusting.'
