Katie Price hits back over marriage gossip

Katie Price has hit out at reports about the state of her marriage to cagefighter Alex Reid.

The former glamour model, 32, took to Twitter following speculation that her spokesman would be announcing the end of the marriage.

Price and Reid's representative was expected to release a statement about the split yesterday.

Today Price wrote on Twitter: "Wish people would concentrate on real news, not what's speculated about people's relationships."

After politician's wife-turned-reality TV star Christine Hamilton weighed in about the relationship on the news review section of ITV1 breakfast show This Morning, Price wrote: "Who is the old bag on This Morning judging me? Nobody knows what really goes on. Shame people believe everything they read."

Price, who married Reid a year ago in Las Vegas following a whirlwind romance, recently confirmed for the first time that the marriage was under strain.
