Just when you thought you’d heard quite enough about Katie Price’s personal life this week, she’s done it again.

The Loose Women star has dished the goss about her failed marriage to Peter Andre, speaking out about how she “never wanted to split with him” and only married Alex Reid in an attempt to get over him.

During an appearance in Preston for her tour, the mum-of-five told a gobsmacked audience all about the doomed romance that began after the pair appeared on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here in 2004.

"Going into that show, I didn’t realise I would find the man I was going to marry – as soon as I saw him I thought ‘I well fancy him,” she said.

“We were obsessed with each other, I never had a relationship quite like that before.

"He was the love of my life. I never wanted to split up with him but we did and that’s that.”

The star’s 12-year-old son joined her on stage and quizzed her over the reasons why she married Alex Reid, to which she’s thought to have responded, "I was trying to get over your dad.”

She also told the audience, "I wanted the fairytale but it never happened that way – and it’s the same for a lot of people you speak to.”

Last week Katie announced she would be divorcing her third husband Kieran Hayler, after discovering he had been having an affair with their nanny Nikki Brown for a year.

Nikki has since slammed the claims as lies, saying, "She's read some emails and assumed we're having an affair. There's nothing intimate or sexual in them and I know because I sent them.

"Katie wanted a divorce, she wants an excuse to get out and blame someone else."
