Professional MMA fighter Alex Reid has dubbed his marriage to ex-wife Katie Price “the prostitute years.”

Alex and Katie ended their three-year marriage back in 2011 and both have since found new relationships. Alex, who appeared in Celebrity Big Brother in 2010, is now engaged to actress Nikki Manashe, while reality star Katie married third husband Kieran Hayler in 2013.

Katie has recently launched a protein shake range, Katie Price Nutrition, much to the surprise of ex-beau Alex.

Speaking to The Sun, Alex said Katie “wasn’t interested” in fitness when they were together, adding: “I just see it as a money-making opportunity – it’s anything to make a buck.”

Alex was also quick to criticise the celebrity world, saying: "The celebrity world doesn't really make me money - it might do for Katie, but it's a pretty crappy life having to sell your soul to make a living. I call it the prostitute years and now it's self worth.”

Alex, keen to leave his reality TV days behind, has returned to his roots and set up a new personal training business. He said: “I'm going back to what I love,” stressing that he wants to be thought of as a “credible athlete and trainer with vast experience” rather than just a celebrity ex.

His PT services are offered online via website

Russ Morgan, co-founder of the site, said: “We’re excited to welcome Alex to the site as one of our professional providers.

"With his background as an MMA fighter, personal trainer and his experience of UFC, we’re sure he’ll be a valuable member of the community."

On top of this new career venture, Alex also hinted he is trying for a baby with fiancée Nikki.
