The Loose Women star gave a revealing interview just days after a it was reported she was taking cocaine

Katie Price was forced to put on a brave face last week as she promoted the latest series of her reality show, My Crazy Life.

This came just days after news that she’d confessed to friends about taking cocaine.

The mum-of-five shared: “People think I’m strong and I am gutsy – but I’m also soft and vulnerable and needy and just want to be loved.

“There have been mornings when I don’t even want to get out of bed – I just wanted to sleep. I’ve been having mental health issues, but no one knows because I hide it well.”

Giving an insight into the heartache over split from husband Kieran Hayler, the 40-year-old revealed: “The sad thing about my break-ups is that it always ends up just being me and Harvey.

“My exes never want to know Harvey - they don’t ring to see how he is. They don’t want to see him – no matter what they portray.

“Obviously, I split the kids and share, so it always ends up being me and Harvey in the house in the evenings - but he goes to bed at 6.30pm, so I sit there and I’m like “Oh”. It’s boring.”

Just weeks after parting ways with Kieran, Katie– who has also been married to Peter Andre and Alex Reid - dived headlong into her new romance with personal trainer Kris Boyson.

After his smash hit 'Out of Your Mind' with Victoria Beckham (who Katie reportedly had a feud with) Dane went a bit quiet on the music scene. Fast forward to 2013 and he reformed with Another Level for The Big Reunion. More recently, Dane has been linked to Love Island star Laura Anderson, who he apparently ended up cheating on. He must have been out of his mind #sorrynotsorry

Matt married an actress and model called Rachael in 2016. Bizarrely, his photos have also been used in quite a few catfishing incidents. But Katie recently started following Matt on Instagram - what can this mean?

Peter Andre 2004 - 2009

The nation watched Peter Andre fall for Katie's charms on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2004. The pair then starred in a string of reality TV shows documenting their life after a fairytale wedding. They even released an album of duets, which we'd all rather just forget about. Katie and Peter had two children together, Junior and Princess, during their five years of marriage.

Before meeting Katie, Alex starred in Sliding Doors with Gwyneth Paltrow (OK, so it was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment). After they split, Alex went on to star in Celebrity Big Brother and he continues to fight. He's been married to Nikki Manashe since 2013. Most recently, he has been involved in a sex tape allegation - claiming that Katie showed a group of people a video of him performing a sex act. Will the drama ever end? (We hope not.)

Leandro Penna - 2011 - 2012

Katie got engaged to Leandro after a whirlwind romance shortly after splitting from Alex Reid - despite the couple barely being able to communicate thanks to his limited English and Katie's non-existent Spanish (former model Leandro hails from Argentina). Leo said of their split, "Katie's brain is not wired right, or the wires don't connect properly. I don't know what's wrong with her. I was thinking it over recently and one day decided to pack my bags and leave. There was nothing else I could do. She was driving me insane."

Since splitting with KP, Leandro has quit fame to return to his native South America and now runs a successful avocado farm and business. Launching in October 2021 he said, "I present my new avocado venture @paltasroyal. Thanks to all the businesses that gave us confidence, to all the avocado-loving customers and to those merchants who have not yet bought them, do not hesitate."

It looked like Katie had a good thing going with Kieran Hayler and their two kids, Jett and Bunny. But Kieran had to go and ruin it by cheating on Katie with her nanny, two best friends (while she was pregnant), then again with a 19-year-old shop assistant. Katie kept taking him backbut she FINALLY called it quits in May 2018.

Kris is still posting insanely buff topless selfies (keep 'em coming, Kris) and his personal training business is thriving. After his split from Katie, he began dating Katie's former pal Bianca Gascoigne, much to Katie's dismay. The couple moved in together within days due to lockdown but split after nearly a year together, citing their hectic work schedules.
