Julia Molony: Is there anything Katie won't do for right Price?

Katie Price appeared in the papers this week for her latest photo-shoot, in which she appears as one half of a pantomime pink horse. If you've had the misfortune to miss this spectacle, imagine a centaur-like My Little Pony, with hair extensions and giant plastic jugs. The shot, created to market her latest equestrian range apparently, marked a watershed. In a moment, one of the most vexed questions of our times; did Jordan kill feminism, was instantly resolved.

All that fretting about Katie Price ushering in the end of civilisation turned out, like SARS and the Russian meteorite, to have been greatly exaggerated. Because it's virtually impossible to pose a threat to civilisation, or feminism, or indeed anything, when dressed as a giant pink horse.

But there was a time in the Katie Price/Peter Andre golden period when the model's career trajectory was a matter of great concern.
