Meanwhile, sources tell the MailOnine that Kris has ‘no interest’ in rekindling his love with Katie telling friends it’s a ‘closed chapter’ after it emerged this week that Kris was allegedly rejected by Katie.
Rejection: It comes after Celebrity Ex On The Beach star Kris received messages from Katie Price amid her split from Carl Woods
The Sun reported that the glamorous model, 43, sent flirty messages to Kris amid issues with her relationship with ex-fiancé Carl.
It was claimed that the TV personality used her daughter Princess’ account to send the messages.
Carl, 33, has since allegedly dumped Katie by sending her a series of angry text messages calling her ‘a cheater and a gambler’ as he accused her of infidelity.
A source claimed Carl ended his 11-month engagement to Katie because he couldn’t trust her anymore, adding to The sun: ‘Carl thinks Katie went behind his back with another man.

“He went on a rampage in a series of texts and accused her of lying to him and using his buddies to hide the phone number of the man he thinks he is seeing. He feels he can’t no longer trust him and that’s the end of the road.
The reported split came just a day after Katie ditched the engagement ring Carl gave her, while he has now deleted all traces of their romance from her social media account.
Sources said The sun: ‘Katie and Carl have decided to go their separate ways. It has been a difficult two months and their ongoing trials have only added more stress to the situation.
“It really seems to be over for now and they are both very sad about it. But of course, no one would be surprised if they got back together.
While Carl deleted all photos of the couple, he and Katie still follow each other on the social media platform.
