Former supermodel and TV personality Katie Price says she has to know all the details of her partner's personal life.

The 39-year-old catwalk icon says she does not shy away from conducting background checks on her potential beaus, reported FemaleFirst.

"I'm like a detective I want to know what girlfriends they've had, what they've done sexually, their past, their jobs, I want to know everything – I don't know why. Sometimes it winds me up but I have to know," Price told discussing a new dating app called Gatsby on ITV's Loose Women.

The model has two ex-husbands, Peter Andre and Alex Reid, and has dated celebrities including Dane Bowers, Dwight Yorke, Danny Cipriani and Gareth Gates among others.

She adds, "I love to do the detective – I want to know everything, especially more now because in the past if I'd done my homework before then maybe I'd not be in the situation I have been in!"
