Brighton-born topless model Jordan has joined the General Election race - with a manifesto pledging free plastic surgery for all.

Jordan, who was born Katie Price and grew up in Patcham, has been backed by the Daily Star newspaper and bookies William Hill as she battles as an independent candidate in the Stretford and Urmston seat in Manchester.

Among her other policies are banning parking tickets and speed limits, scrapping school PE lessons and introducing NHS-sponsored holidays to club capital Ibiza.

The constituency includes the Old Trafford stadium, where her boyfriend Dwight Yorke plays for Manchester United.

The 23-year-old will need a massive swing if she is to overturn the 14,000 majority won by Labour's Beverley Hughes in 1997.

But she confidently predicted: "I'm big in modelling, big in ambition and aim to be even bigger in politics."
