KATIE Price has hired her best friend Dionne Dunne as her personal assistant as she plots her return to showbiz.
Katie’s now paying Dionne – who fans might remember from Katie Price’s Pony Club as ‘Amber’s mum’ – to drive her around during Katie’s driving ban.
Dionne also accompanies Katie to TV appearances and completes admin tasks and organises Katie’s diary.
“Katie has huge plans for this year, and after her money struggles had no staff left to help her out, so she asked Dionne and she was more than happy,” says the insider.
“Katie’s promised when she’s back on her feet and raking it in, Dionne will be well paid for her role as executive assistant.
“She always says that Dionne is one of the only people in the world she can trust, so she’s perfect to work with her.
“Her kids are friends with Katie’s, and she knows the family.
“Dionne and her husband also own the garage that was selling Katie’s Barbie jeep, so she’s very involved in her life.
“They’ve been friends for years.
“Fans will also see Dionne on the reality show as they’re filming right now.”
