Alex Reid on Jeremy Kyle Show: Star talks Chantelle, Dolly, Katie Price

By
Alex Reid has appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show to talk about exes Chantelle Houghton, Katie Price and baby Dolly.

In a special Christmas interview with the chatshow host, the cage fighter spoke out about his past.

The cross dresser - who has had a very public breakup with reality star Houghton and has allegedly only just seen Dolly for the first time in over six weeks - said: "I felt very uncomfortable about coming on here but enough's enough.

"I feel I have been misconstrued. I feel backed into a corner. I don't want to but I have to set the record straight. I want what's best for Dolly. It so kills me, I don't know what to do.

"I'm going to be there through thick and thin for her. I hold that in my heart."

On proposing to Chantelle on an Irish TV chatshow, he said: "This was the woman I planned to spend the rest of my life with.

"There was nothing planned about it. And I'd already just discovered she was pregnant.

"That's another thing, I didn't want to… I'd only known her several months. That's way too fast.

"But it's the most amazing feeling, I've wanted kids for so long. I may not have been able to have kids with Katie Price, so this was a double whammy."

On being arrested at Chantelle's house recently, he said: "She told me to come round because Dolly was ill. I went in the middle of the night to try and avoid paparazzi.

"But she wouldn't let me in so I broke the door down. I went in, made a sandwich, and all of a sudden armed police appeared. I thought it was a set-up. Chantelle was crying, 'Don't arrest him!'"

Of his previous relationships, he said he didn't want to fall in love with Chantelle because he'd just got out of a high-profile relationship with Katie Price.

He said about Price: "I loved Katie, I married her for the right reasons. I was highly attracted to her on every level, it devastated me. I fought to the bitter end. It was horrific."

On his alter ego crossdressing character Roxanne, he said: "Where do we start? It started in a previous relationship in my early 20s. She dressed me up, I thought fine, I'll go with this and really enjoyed it, and we had a great time.

"It's only ever been done when a partner is willing and it's a character, in role play. It's a bit of fun to spice up sex life. What people do privately, so what?

"I don't dress up as her now. It's not fun anymore. The most important thing is my gorgeous little girl. I'm not going to do something that's not fun anymore."

Speaking about the alleged sex dungeon, he said: "Sex dungeon... no. Come on. That infuriates me. I could get really crude but I won't."

And the reasons for his and Chantelle's ultimate break-up? "I don't know. Trust issues? I got accused of having affairs [with] men and women.

"I said to Chantelle, 'Please don't talk about me anymore to the press'. Things she said would end up in the paper even when she was pregnant.

"I've been guilty of that too, but I soon learn to shut up. Shut up."

On baby Dolly he said: "Wow, it's the most gratifying thing. This is what it's all about. When I'm down I think about her. I love it. I've got a picture of her all the time on my phone."

When asked if he was bisexual, he said: "I... no... I don't smoke but I have tried a cigarette. Experimentation is not orientation... I like women."
