Alex Reid in tell-all interview with Jeremy Kyle


In a rather odd Christmas special, Alex Reid was interviewed by none other than straight-talking chat show host Jeremy Kyle.

In October, Chantelle Houghton said that her ex Alex Reid had turned their house into a 'sex dungeon' while she was pregnant with the daughter Dolly before they split. She also alleged that he arranged to meet a man for sex while dressed as his alter-ego Roxanne.

The cagefighter, who was formally married to Katie Price and appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, said he appeared on Jeremy Kyle to reach out to his ex to see their daughter.

When questioned about the allegations of sleeping with men behind Chantelle's back, he said:

"I don't smoke but I have tried a cigarette. Experimentation is not orientation...I like women."

He also apparently said:

"All I want is credibility and respect."

Arguably, the best way to achieve this probably isn't by appearing on Jeremy Kyle.

Other celebrities to appear in the Christmas specials this week are Kerry Katona and Daniella Westbrook.
