Alex Reid: I cried when I saw first picture of Katie Price with Leandro Penna - she said she wanted 'an Alex cuddle'
In fact, he and Katie seemed to be patching things up at a spa over Valentine's weekend in 2011 when they slept together, Alex, 36, confirms.
'On the day she met Leandro, she was texting me to say she was looking forward to having an Alex cuddle,' Alex tells Now's Dan Wootton.
'She said the break had done us good. Then I woke up the next morning and saw the pictures of her and Leandro. That hurt. I was crying.
'When I look back now, I don't think she wanted to be with me. That's why she went out and found someone else.
'She just got bored of me, I think.'
