Katie Price fails world record book signing attempt

By
Katie Price has failed to break the Guinness World Record for the largest book signing by a single author.

The former glamour model carried out the attempt at the O2 Academy in Leeds today. In order to achieve the record, she needed to sign more than 1,951 copies of The Comeback Girl - beating the total signed by former world chess champion Anatoly Karpov in 2006.

Price continued: "It's been a really brilliant day and I loved every minute. My fans really are the best and it was great so many of them came out to try and help me do this. Woohoo! The Comeback Girl is already at number 1!"

Liz Smith from Guinness World Records commented: "Today, Katie has shown real passion and determination in this record attempt, and I have been at her side all day verifying each and every book she signed.

"Unfortunately on this occasion Katie did not successfully achieve a new record, but we hope to welcome her for another record attempt in the future."

Fans who attended the signing have been promised that their names will appear in Price's next novel Santa Baby, which is scheduled for publication in October.
