Chiswick House Affair Splits Loyalties
Friends of Katie Price and Peter Andre forced to decide who gets invited to event
The very public separation of Katie Price and Peter Andre seems to have split more than just their marriage.
Two of the couple's friends are reported to have spent hours 'agonising' over the guest list for the renewal of their wedding vows.
The former glamour model's make up artist Gary Cockerill and his partner Phil Turner are to host a ceremony in Chiswick House next month but had trouble deciding who they would invite.
The invitation to star studded affair which will be filmed for Living TV went to Katie in the end.
A source told The Evening Standard, “Katie and Pete's mutual friends can see them separately but, as they can't be in the same room together, their friends have the terrible decision to make. Gary is really close to both Katie and Pete. He has styled them both for years and has even lived with them in the past when he was in high demand.
“It was a tough decision to make, but they decided as a couple that their loyalties lay with Katie, and they didn't want their big day to be overshadowed by a showdown between the two.”
The event will take place in the same setting as Clare Balding's marriage to her long-term partner Alice Arnold in September 2006.
