Katie blames Pete marriage breakdown on cameras

Katie Price has claimed her marriage to Peter Andre would have survived if they hadn’t let the cameras into their lives.

The couple met on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2004 and married a year later, starring together in the reality TV show Katie And Peter. They’ve gone on to star in separate reality shows since they split in 2009.

But Katie told Heat magazine: “Our marriage was all about the cameras and the deals and the jazz hands. It would have lasted for years if we were given time to put the cameras down and actually enjoy being married.

“I always thought my marriage to Peter was the one that would last, I really did.”

Meanwhile, Peter has told Piers Morgan’s Life Stories he is still ‘tortured’ by his split from Katie.

He revealed he suffered panic attacks when he was younger and had his first attack in 17 years when he first saw a picture of Katie’s second husband Alex Reid playing with his children Junior, six, Princess Tiaamii, four and nine-year-old stepson Harvey.

He said: “It killed me… That night I woke up about two in the morning and I felt like I had been hit on the head with a hammer. I started to panic. It was horrible.”

Asked if he still loves Katie, Peter replied: “As the mother of my children, yes… I’ve moved on in leaps and bounds in one way, but in another way, I’m still a bit tortured inside.”
