Katie Price reveals that daughter Princess and son Junior's Instagram accounts are back up and running after they mysteriously disappeared...
Katie Price has announced that her children’s Instagram pages are back, putting their mysterious disappearance down to an admin fault.
Sharing pictures of their pages, the mum of five wrote: ‘Hey my baby is back’ alongside her son, Junior’s, followed by another ‘My baby girl is back,’ alongside her daughter, Princess’.
Katie originally split the public when some fans questioned her decision to let 11-year-old Junior and 9-year-old Princess have social media accounts.
But the Loose Women presenter defended herself on the day-time show, saying: “My kids have been brought up in the industry, now they’re being booked for jobs themselves.
“Social media is the future. I won’t allow them on Snapchat, Facebook etc. But all their friends are on Instagram.
“Yes it is open, but I’m in control. I sign them in, I sign them out. I made it clear, you don’t follow anybody, I delete comments, block people. I’m protective!! she explained.
But just three weeks after the busy mum of five created the accounts, fans noticed the original Instagram pages had disappeared, leaving them wondering, what happened?
Despite all the confusion, it seems there was a very simple explanation behind the mysterious disappearance, and a spokesperson was on hand to clear it up with MailOnline, saying: “They will be back very soon. There is no exciting reason, it was to do with admin.”
The kids’ brand new Insta pages are run by Katie and feature some super adorable videos of Junior and Princess, who reveal they’ve been begging their Mum to let them have Instagram for years (they are SERIOUSLY cute).

Junior and Princess’ dad, Peter Andre, has also shared his thoughts on social media, writing in his New! Magazine column: “Everyone knows I don’t allow them to have phones or social media at my house. But I guess it doesn’t necessarily mean to say I’m right.
“I don’t like kids having them because I think it opens them up to all sorts of issues, but as a parent you have to compromise with the other parent and try to work together.”
