Katie Price: The Jordan Years

In 2001, filmmaker Richard Macer began the first of three documentaries about the glamour model Jordan. Back then, she was the Britain's most notorious laddette, a tabloid sensation and an embarrassment to everyone but herself, but by the end of their third film together in 2003 Jordan had become a very different person.

She was a single mum with a disabled child and a career that was coming to an end. But incredibly, she is now reportedly worth over 30 million pounds and has dropped her alter ego for her real name, Katie Price. She has had a string of best-selling books, including three autobiographies, and her extraordinary transformation moved her fanbase from teenage boys to young women. Now, she is even described as a female icon.

How did she achieve this amazing change? Macer revisits the 200 hours of footage he shot of Jordan, talks to the people who helped make her famous and asks if Jordan is really a good role model for girls in Britain.
