The model presents Rylan with a cake on TV

Katie Price helped good pal Rylan Clark celebrate his 25th birthday on Friday.

The model, 35, was promoting new book Love, Lipstick And Lies on ITV‘s This Morning when she hooked up with Rylan – who’s the show’s resident X Factor expert.

Katie and her daughter Princess Tiaamii, 6, cuddled up to Rylan backstage as he showed off a cake bearing his face, which she’d presented to him live on-air.

‘thank you to my @misskatieprice xxx,’ Tweeted Rylan.

Katie replied: ‘@Rylan xxxxxx.’

The pair became close after Rylan became a finalist on Katie‘s modelling programme Signed By Katie Price two years ago and they’ve stayed in touch since.

It seems the Celebrity Big Brother winner had a brilliant day after he was sent sweet messages on Twitter by friends including Lucy Spraggan, Lauren Harries and Gary Barlow.

‘Thank you so much for all your birthday wishes, and thank you to all sirens sending me gifts and cards. such a lucky boy Thank you so much x,’ Tweeted Rylan.
