Alex Reid says his relationship with Jordan is getting better

Alex Reid has acknowledged that his relationship with Katie Price is in trouble.

Katie – aka Jordan, 32 – told the world her 11-month marriage was in ‘crisis’ on Twitter earlier this month, but Alex is still hopeful they can patch things up.

‘Like most couples we have our ups and downs but some stories in the press have been well wide of the mark – particularly those saying we are seeing other people,’ says Alex, 35.

‘What is true is that we have both been under pressure and it has affected us.

‘So yes, we’ve been having difficulties, but we’re hopeful we will get it sorted.’

The couple, who married in February 2010 and have been trying to conceive a baby ever since, recently took a make-or-break trip to the Indian Ocean.

‘We went on holiday over the New Year to reconnect, and it felt like we did,’ Alex insists.

‘Since then we’ve been getting on like a house on fire!

‘We did a lot of relaxing, played ping-pong – which Katie kept winning at – and had fun and a romantic time generally.’

Cross-dressing cagefighter Alex remains optimistic for the year ahead.

‘It’s not nice to read the odds are on us being the first couple to split in 2011 – hopefully we’ll prove them wrong.’
