Katie Price: butler at wedding asked if I was a 'porn star'

Model says wedding was ruined by Bahamas resort's plastic sunbeds, bad tent and impertinent butler

KATIE PRICE has revealed that her third wedding to builder and part-time stripper Keiran Hayler was "almost ruined" by a series of "disasters" including a hotel butler who inexplicably mistook her for a "porn star".

Writing in The Sun, Price says her big day at Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort and Spa was compromised by bad architecture, poorly constructed sunbeds and an atmosphere that was more like an "18-30 holiday club" than a refined royal palace.

"Sandals my arse," fumes Price in her column in today’s paper. "It was more like a smelly old flip-flop".

The official Sandals Royal Bahamian website says the resort has a "stunning Georgian façade" and was "once the domain of a former king of England". Step inside and you "realise that you've entered a realm of sophisticated splendour".

But Price, who got married on the resort’s beach, says she was not made to feel like royalty. Her wedding snaps had to hide the fact there were "ugly skyscrapers" near the beach and she says her wedding tent "looked like it came out of a B&Q flat pack". To make matters worse, the sunbeds were made from "plastic", rather than another, more sophisticated material.

Worst of all, the bride-to-be says she was asked by a hotel butler, "Are you a porn star?"

"I’ve done a few things in my time, but porn isn’t one of them," writes an indignant Price. "It’s not the sort of thing a bride-to-be expects to be asked by a member of staff at a so-called classy hotel."

Price ends her column by promising to see the Sandals resort "in court". But things are unlikely to get that far because the resort told the Sun it would be happy to give Price a full refund as long as she "does not choose our resorts for any future weddings or stays".

Sandals also says its butler denies making any "derogatory remarks", but provided no information on the construction of its sunbeds. ·
