Alex is yet to divorce his ex Jordan

Alex Reid and Chantelle Houghton are unable to set a date for their wedding because Alex is still married to Katie Price.

Alex, 36, and Chantelle, 28, were hoping to get hitched this year but can’t start planning the big day until the cage fighter’s divorce from Jordan, 33, has been finalised.

‘We need to book a venue soon if [Chantelle] wants it this year,’ says Alex.

‘You see, it’s a bit difficult because I’m still married to [Katie Price].

‘It’s pants.’

The couple are currently expecting a daughter together and became engaged after Alex proposed to Chantelle live on Irish programme The Saturday Show in October.

But Chantelle, who divorced first husband Samuel Preston in 2007, says she’s willing to wait a while for their nuptials because she wants to ensure her second trip down the aisle is perfect.

‘We’ve got so much to do anyway. It will probably be next year,’ says Chantelle.

‘I do like the idea of a winter wonderland.’
