Thoughts: Katie Price’s Mucky Mansion sparked a flurry of reaction from viewers when it was finally broadcast on Channel 4 on Wednesday night

In the show, Katie reveals her plans to completely transform her mansion, after a string of personal woes including a stint in The Priory in 2019.

Along with fixing the damage caused by a break-in at her home, the star is told her house is rife with damp and mould, adding yet more work for her team of builders.

However, by the end of the opening episode, Katie revealed she’d finished transforming her son Jett’s bedroom, unveiling the jungle-themed room to her children.

Given Katie’s bold plans for the home, which include re-doing the entire kitchen, new floors, and removing the dark woodwork, many viewers were perplexed how she could afford the renovations.

The series, filmed months earlier, came after the star was declared bankrupt, and she is currently in the midst of paying back creditors, with a hearing scheduled to take place next month.

Other viewers noted the awkward timing of the series, days after Katie was arrested for allegedly breaching her restraining order by sending abusive messages to her ex-husband Kieran Hayler’s fiancée Michelle Penticost.

However, some fans were quick to slam trolls for piling on Katie, praising the star for her clear devotion to her family. 

One wrote: ‘@Channel4 have totally misjudged the mood of the nation in giving Katie Price a TV show. There may still be some deluded fans that don’t care that she exploits her disabled son and has been caught drink and drug driving 6x, but it’s only a small %.’

‘Channel 4 knocking out a house renovation for Katie Price, nice that, who’s next, Fred and Rose getting their back garden done? Ridiculous?’ another wrote.

A third tweeted: ‘I thought Katie Price was bankrupt? How is she affording these renovations? Genuinely interested to know!’

‘Anyone else remember when Channel 4 were cool, making cutting-edge and ground-breaking telly? F**k me…’ one added.

A fan also posted: ‘I’ve always thought Katie Price’s vacuous persona was a deceptive facade. It turns out she really is awful.’

Rage: Many viewers took to social media to share their reaction, with some slamming Channel 4 for broadcasting the show after Katie's arrest

‘Just when you think the UK couldn’t sink any lower… you see that #MuckyMansion is trending at number 1,’ a fan also posted.

‘@Channel4 aren’t you a bit embarassed showing this, recently caught drunk/drug driving and breaking a restraining order and you still show this!’ a viewer wrote.

One added: ‘How does she get to keep her house when she’s bankrupt?’

Defending Katie, one fan wrote: ‘Really enjoyed the show and Jetts room looked great and more importantly he loved it! Can’t wait to see the rest of the transformations. 

‘Despite what people may think about @KatiePrice its clear how much she loves her kids and how important sorting out her home is.’

Another added: ‘Katie has been through so many ups and downs it’s no wonder her mental health has suffered and awful, sad things have happened. Good on her for pushing towards and working to support herself and her kids.’

‘Everyone slating Katie Price need to be ashamed yes she has made bad choices but for her to want to get back in her house after all the bad memories and wanting to start again good on her! No one’s perfect!’ a third continued. 

Oops! It was previously reported that Katie landed a £45,000 payday for the Channel 4 series, and avoided paying a penny for renovations to her 'Mucky Mansion'

It was previously reported that Katie landed a £45,000 payday for the Channel 4 series, and avoided paying a penny for renovations to her ‘Mucky Mansion.’

Despite the multiple renovations that were needed to her West Sussex mansion, Katie paid nothing towards the costs, while receiving a hefty fee for starring in the series.

A source told The Sun: ‘Katie hit the jackpot with the show – she got a £45,000 fee and didn’t have to put any of her own money into the project. 

‘The costs are being paid by the production company and she’s landed a lot of freebies from companies who want the exposure of being on her show or her social media.’

A spokesperson for Channel 4 told MailOnline: ‘Production did not pay for the costs of any renovations of the house.’

Katie was arrested on Friday on suspicion of breaching her restraining order after she allegedly branded her ex-husband Kieran Hayler’s fiancée Michelle Penticost a ‘gutter sl*g’ in ‘abusive messages’. 

Following her release after a 12-hour interrogation, with officers now examining her phone for evidence, Carl was said to be ‘furious and embarrassed’ at her behaviour, but an insider claimed that he has ‘zero intention’ of leaving her. 

Katie, who was handed a five-year restraining order forbidding her from contacting Michelle directly or indirectly in 2019 after hurling a ‘tirade of abuse’ at her, could now face up to five years in prison if she is charged and found guilty. 

Katie Price’s Mucky Mansion continues on Tuesday at 9pm on Channel 4.
