A spokesman insists Alex was not flirting with Amy

Alex Reid‘s camp has denied that he sent flirty Twitter messages to  Amy Willerton, winner of ex-wife Katie Price‘s reality show Signed By Katie Price.

Weekend tabloid reports claim that Alex, 36, left pregnant fiancée Chantelle Houghton distraught after he tried to charm 19-year-old Amy – but a spokesman for the cage fighter insists he was just being friendly.

Alex has thousands of followers on Twitter and is asked to follow lots of people,’ says the spokesman.

‘Any private message sent to Amy was entirely innocent.’

Friends of Chantelle, 28, say that she was in tears after finding out Alex had ended a message to Amy with a kiss.

The Celebrity Big Brother 2006 winner looked miserable as she arrived at her Brentwood home alone yesterday.

Chantelle is six months pregnant and highly sensitive even without all this,’ a friend tells The People.

‘The last thing Alex should have been doing was trying to charm a girl who had obvious links to his former wife.

Alex might have only been trying to start off an entirely harmless friendship. 

‘But it just doesn’t look right signing off a message to a girl he hardly knows with a big X.’
