Katie Price is adopting a Nigerian orphan after getting the idea from a woman in a nail bar.

The mother-of-five made the big announcement about her ‘exclusive baby news’ on today’s This Morning.

Katie, 40, told stunned presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that she will fly out to Nigeria to find a new addition to her family.

The reality TV star said she "should have gone last weekend" but was busy with the kids.

She said: "I’ve said I always wanted to adopt a child. I don’t care if they have disabilities or age, just because I feel I can offer them a place.

She said: "I still want my own kids as well, don’t get me wrong. I would definitely have more.

"If I can offer another child I will. There’s enough bedrooms in the house."

She ‘pleaded’ to return to the show as a panelist in a particularly cringeworthy end to the interview.

"My tidy mansion," Katie exclaimed.
