40 Things to do in Sheffield & South Yorkshire tonight

Katie Price outside the Oxford Union debating chamber in Oxford where the glamour model will speak to students.  PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Picture date: Wednesday October 12, 2011. The 33-year-old, who shot to fame as Jordan in the late 90s, will follow in the footsteps of greats such as Winston Churchill, the Dalai Lama and, more recently, Pamela Anderson by speaking in the debating chamber. A spokeswoman for the twice-married celebrity said she will address the audience about her life and colourful career. As well as being a successful glamour model, the mother-of-three has had her own reality TV series, equestrian range, four autobiographies and was a contestant on I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here, where she met her first husband, pop star Peter Andre. Price, who also has a children's book range and last month launched her own magazine, is expected to speak for around an hour before taking questions. See PA story SHOWBIZ Price.
