KATIE PRICE has "startled friends" by announcing plans to marry her "toyboy" Keiran Hayler this week, only two months after meeting the 25-year old builder and part-time stripper.

"It just feels right," 34-year-old Price (aka Jordan) told the Daily Mirror. "When something feels right, I just go for it."

Indeed she does. In 2005, the model-turned-businesswoman wed the Australian pop star Peter Andre and went on to have two children with him. In 2010, a year after splitting from Andre, she walked down the aisle with cage fighter Alex Reid, but they separated within a year.

Price was also engaged to the non-English speaking Argentine model Leandro Penna whom she met at Elton John's Oscars party, but ended the relationship less than a year ago.

Reid offered Hayler a few words of advice via The Sun, describing Price as "one of the most high maintenance women in Britain". The glamour model is "in love with being in love" says Reid, who reveals he struggled to adjust to life in the Jordan-generated spotlight.

Hayler, whose previous "claim to fame" was his appearance as a party stripper on an episode of EastEnders, proposed to Price over the Christmas turkey and things have moved quickly since then. The Daily Mail says there are reports the couple have flown to the Caribbean to "find a wedding venue" and won't waste any time using it.

The Mirror says Price's friends are stunned that she's rushing back into matrimony so quickly. An unnamed source told the paper her engagement seemed to "come out of the blue" and now "she's whisking him [Hayler] away to get married".

Price thinks Hayler is "the perfect gent", says the Mirror and a "normal, down-to-earth guy". He's also "really good" with her children, the paper says. ·
