Rugby star and dater of beautiful women, Danny Cipriani has opened up about his time with Katie Price and their eventual break up after Katie caught him in bed with another woman.

Danny explained that it was "frustrating" having their relationship exposed in Katie's autobiography Love, Lipstick and Lies.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “She was cool, but it wasn’t anything major and then it was written about in her books later on.


“I have no ill feeling towards that and it’s just how it is. At the time, it was frustrating.”

Danny had a crush on Katie for a long time before they got together, as he explained: “When I was younger she was that pin - the hot girl of the moment. When I met her she seemed really nice and we hung out for a couple of weeks with a group of friends.”

In her book, Katie describes the exact moment to she came to Danny's house and caught him in bed with another woman, after being let in by his housemate.


She told him: "I want you to know that I forgive you, but I never forget."

After that, Katie went on to give Danny the nickname "Chipolata" after his, erm, slender manhood.

“In my experience he was a bit – erm – lean in the most obvious departments.

“That’s why I nicknamed him Danny Chipolata. He can no longer hit the right spots on the rugby field and he certainly can’t find them on a woman.”

Kelly Brook

Danny also opened up about his relationship with Kelly Brook, which left him with depression after they split and he struggled to deal with the fallout in the media.

He said: “Going through a break-up and people always talking about your relationship while it is affecting your sport can cause a lot of issues.

“After that I had depression for nine months. It’s cool as I’ve now learnt everyone’s got their family issues, whatever they might be.

“It wasn’t a great time and I had to see somebody to get help. It’s part of growing up, and going through that in the spotlight is tough.”
