The former glamour model couldn't believe how highly she placed on her beloved town's list of top dogs.
Katie, 40, took to Twitter to say how "chuffed" she was by the honour in a series of tweets.
In the first she wrote: "Can’t actually believe how highly placed I am.
"Thank you everyone ! Finally things are on the up again
"#neverunderestimatethepricey #sheisback #BusinessIntelligence #womeninpower."
Her fans were quick to congratulate her on the achievement.
One wrote: " Never underestimate the Pricey! Strong women always come back HARD!
"Glad you're back."
While another praised her, responding: " Such an amazing woman, happy things are back on the up."
The reality star joined the likes of a long list of worthy people who live in the seaside resort town.
She followed closely behind Adele, Sir Paul McCartney, Holly Willoughby and Simon Cowell – to name a few.
Katie also edged out the likes of Steve Coogan, Cate Blanchett, Kate Silverton and Simon Fuller.
And not to mention her ex-husband Peter Andre who came in at 29 on the list.
The good news comes just days after Katie managed to swerve bankruptcy AGAIN after the tax man accepted her plan to repay £22k debt.
The troubled star had been battling for months to reach an agreement with creditors following an earlier hearing.
The ex – I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star was once said to be worth more than £40 million and was known as a savvy businesswoman.
But she has since been plagued with financial troubles and was given time to negotiate a deal with the taxman over her finances by a judge at a specialist insolvency and companies court in October.
Katie recently spoke out about her doomed finances on her show My Crazy Life, blaming her financial ruin on her exes.
