Celebrity cagefighter Alex Reid has outlined his political ambition to become a member of parliament.

The Celebrity Big Brother star and ex-husband of Katie Price, now engaged to Chantelle Houghton, believes his straight-talking persona would appeal to the masses.

Speaking to The Sun, Reid said of his Westminster dream: "It would be lovely to be an MP.

"I believe I can use my power as a celebrity to influence young people to help them be the people they want to be and to have a better Britain.

"I'm someone who can get the points across that people want and can understand without jargon."

On whether he would consider running for Prime Minister, the 36-year-old revealed: "If the people wanted me to, I'd love to."

Referring to Prime Minister's Questions, he added: "When you've fought an athlete trying to rip your head off, standing up against someone just trying to verbally discredit you won't be a problem."
