KATIE Price tried to prove her mucky mansion was squeaky-clean – before showing fans teetering piles of trash and a swimming pool filled with terrifying green ooze.
The 41-year-old star was desperate to dispel the ‘myth’ that the West Sussex manor is a mess, insisting: “I’m going to clear up some rumours about my mucky mansion and house. It’s ridiculous.”
However, she ended up doing exactly the opposite as she showed off piles of discarded garbage, and eventually admitted: “Yes, it does look like a mucky mansion.”
Then, gesturing towards a huge pile of decaying waste, she warned: “It’s even worse up there.”
Giving a tour of the grounds of the £2million home, she complained that the place had a unfairly bad reputation.
Katie then let cameras film piles of rusting metal and smashed-up wendy houses and an area round the back where garbage was piled up beside two old containers.
She also complained that Keith Lemon has condemned the place on Through The Keyhole, calling her swimming pool a “swamp”.
But when she walked over to the pool, it was fenced off and full of green water.
She insisted: “This is my swimming pool at the moment. I think it looks a bit better than a swamp. Obviously I’ve fenced it all off so the kids don’t get in there.”
The star added that she had big plans to build a new home on the site of her former tennis courts – explaining she had “genius” plans for the main house.

But indoors things were little better, with grey animal-print wallpaper torn and coming loose from the wall.
Explaining that the place was being transformed, she said: “See the house is half being done. Look, no wallpaper there.”
She concluded: “Really I should call it Priceywood. Hollywood? Priceywood? Get it?”
Somehow, we think the ‘mucky mansion’ label might be around for a little while longer.
