Alex Reid has revealed to a Sunday newspaper that he considered suicide after his split from wife Katie Price.

Speaking to the News Of The World, the cage fighter and former winner of Celebrity Big Brother said he had gone through “unadulterated rage” and “the depths of despair” in recent weeks.

“I was depressed…I’ve had some really dark moments over the last few weeks. I’m a fighter but this has drained me,” Alex admitted.

“At my lowest I thought it would be easier not to be here.

“It was horrible because I usually live life to the full. I’m a strong guy. I’m a fighter. But this has drained me and taken all my energy and vibrancy.”

The 35-year-old tearfully confessed that he had felt “humiliated” after seeing pictures of the reality TV star – aka glamour model Jordan – with Argentinian model Leandro Penna.

“Seeing pictures of her with another man whilst we are still married is awful,” he said.

“Yes, I’m in pain. And in the last few weeks I’ve felt anger, rage, despair. You name it, I’ve felt it. But there’s a big part of me that still loves her.”

Alex and Katie tied the knot in Las Vegas February 2010 shortly after he was crowned winner of Celebrity Big Brother. However they announced just 11 months later they were splitting up.
