Price and Reid 'still in love'

Katie Price has insisted that she and Alex Reid still love each other amid rumours that their marriage is on the rocks.

The TV star and former glamour model denied she had fled to Portugal to escape rows with her husband.

She said the cage fighter, 35, was "secure in the knowledge that I love him as I am in the knowledge that he loves me".

Price, 32, said she was not pregnant and that she did not want to get back with her ex, Peter Andre.

She slammed claims that Reid, who she wed in Las Vegas in February following a whirlwind romance, had threatened to leave her.

She said: "Alex and I are not constantly arguing. I have not run away to Portugal to escape the rows that Alex and I are not having. I am on a family holiday and Alex is not here because he is training for his fight against Tom Watson."

Price said of her former husband: "Peter Andre is the father of two of my children. I respect him and have contact with him in that capacity. I do not wish to get back with Peter and Peter does not wish to get back with me. We have both moved on with our lives."

Meanwhile, Reid said on ITV show This Morning: "I'm very much still married and still very much in love".

He added that the couple would be abstaining from sex for a month before Reid's big fight, telling the show: "I've asked many fighters around the world and it's purely a placebo thing. If you think it works for you then yeah. And some people have sex right before. I personally like four weeks (without sex) just to get the aggression!"

Reid denied he was returning to the Big Brother house for Ultimate Big Brother, saying: "I have been approached and I would love to go back if they let me train. If they let me train it'd actually be quite a good place to train in a weird way because all of the distractions aren't there."
