London: Glamour model Katie Price has increased security at her home in Brighton, Southern England, to protect her and her family after receiving a kidnap threat.

The 33-year-old TV star, who has three children, Harvey, nine, Junior, six, and Princess Tiaamii, four, from previous relationships, was left terrified following the threat and has now made sure her estate in Brighton, South England, is completely secure for her family, reported Reveal magazine.

"I had another kidnap threat this year, quite a bad one. My house is now like Inspector because I'm in the middle of 52 acres on my own. You name it, my house has got it, from all the gates into my property, cameras inside and out and panic buttons everywhere," she said.

Price, who was previously the target of a kidnap threat in 2009, is single after splitting with Leandro Penna so has asked friends to stay with her to make her feel safer.

"I've got Michelle Heaton and her husband Hugh staying with me at the moment," she said.

Price also said that she is finding it weird being single, particularly when she is at home in the evenings.

"It's weird being single, I'm not scared of being alone, but at night when you're watching TV you do want companionship," she added.
