Katie jets into town with her new hunk

GLAMOUR girl Katie Price (32) will be bringing her new Argentinean boyfriend to tonight's Peter Mark VIP Style Awards, the Herald can reveal.

The controversial model, also known as Jordan, is jetting into Dublin today as one of the big-name celebrities at tonight's glam bash in the Shelbourne.

But she won't be flying solo as she comes down the red carpet -- her date will be her boyfriend of six weeks, Leandro Penna (25).

As proof of how much difference a year makes, last year saw the twice-married mum-of-three accompanied to the same fashion-forward event by her cage-fighter ex, Alex Reid.

Now the pair are thrashing out details of a "quickie divorce" since confirming their split last January.

And Katie is expected to make another big splash tonight, given her fondness for the Dublin party scene.

She'll be joining more than 300 of Ireland's most fashionable socialites as they compete for an accolade at the country's style Oscars.

"Katie absolutely loves coming to Ireland. She thinks it's really chilled compared to the UK scene, which is quite in-your-face," said an insider.

"She has had a lot going on lately and wants to make it a night to remember. She was one of the last ones standing at last year's awards, dancing on the tables in Krystle till all hours.

"She's one girl who knows how to party and she certainly doesn't hold back."

She is also expected to be accompanied by a camera crew filming for her latest reality show, Katie, for Sky Living, as well as her ever-present pal Phil Tucker.
