At just after 10:15 this morning the whole of Wivenhoe came to a complete stand still as former glamour model Katie Price rode a horse down Rebow Road, before turning it around and then riding it home again.
Katie – who in a former life used to regularly appear in lads’ mags and on page three as glamour model Michael Jordan – has been riding her horse Pankhurst up and down numerous Wivenhoe roads to help raise money for this year’s Sport Relief.
Katie told The Watcher: “It’s been a huge success so far. Last week we raised 43p on Alma Street, at the weekend I got £1.73 for doing three laps of the station car park and next week I’m going to jump over the man that sells The Big Issue outside the Co-op.
Price’s goal is to raise £150,000 for Sports Relief, before heading across the water to hassle the people of Fingringhoe.
