Katie Price plans music comeback as she duets with X Factor winner Sam Bailey

KATIE Price has joined forces with X Factor winner Sam Bailey to try and help her kickstart her music career once again after multiple failures.

It comes after the former glamour model, 42, returned to the studio yesterday to record her new album Put Me Back Together.

And now her producer Rick Live has revealed to The Sun Online that Katie has roped in famous friend Sam Bailey to help her out.

He told us: "Sam and Katie have recorded two covers for the album – one is Don't Walk Away and it's sounding great."

American R&B group Jade released Don't Walk Away in 1992 as a single from their album, 'Jade to the Max', which became one of the biggest dance songs of that year.

The second song they have covered together is 1, 2, 3 by Gloria Estefan – which peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in July 1988.

The Sun Online have contacted Sam Bailey's rep for comment.

This is definitely not the first time the pair have been in the studio together after they were seen recording each other this time last year.

Katie and Sam struck up a friendship six years ago after they met on the set of Family Fortunes.

They hit it off so well that Katie invited the former prison officer to her and third husband Kieran Hayler’s wedding vow renewals in 2015.

When the mum-of-five was asked by Now magazine if she would have liked to duet with the ITV show champ in 2014, she replied: "In my dreams! I could always ask her to come to mine and Kieran's renewals and sing. She does all those gorgeous power ballads.

"Sam's so nice. We filmed episodes of 'Family Fortunes' and were in the green room with our babies.

"She's normal, down to earth and grounded. I was talking to her about her job as a prison guard."

The ex glamour model's first attempt at pop stardom was when she tried to represent the UK in Eurovision back in 2005.

She entered Making Your Mind Up, the contest that chose which song we sent to the competition, with the track I'm Not Just Anybody.

Since her stint on Eurovision, Katie has given her music career a right go,releasing numerous albums and singles for everyone to enjoy.

In 2006 the model teamed up with then-husband Peter Andre to release an album called A Whole New World, which failed to impress and placed at number 20.

In 2010 she decided to give it another go and released yet another single -Free To Love Again – which entered the UK charts at number 60.

Then after a seven year break, Kate teamed up with X Factor reject Craig Colton for her song I Got U, which was pushed out of the charts entirely after just three days.

Meanwhile, it's easy to say that Sam Bailey's singing career has been slightly more successful.

A year after winning The X Factor in 2013, Sam released her album Power of Love, which debuted at number one of the UK Albums Chart.

The reality star since then has starred in musicals all around the UK, and has played the role of Mamma Morton in the UK tour of the musical Chicago and Betty Simpson in Fat Friends – The Musical.
