Katie and Peter are wrapped up in a legal debacle
Gavin and Pete have known each other since Katie befriended Charlotte Church at an awards do in 2004 and the Welsh couple were even invited to her and Pete’s lavish 2005 wedding, although they couldn’t make it.
Pete, 39, also told Now in July last year that he was jealous of Gavin’s body.
Gavin, 30, repaid the compliment by calling Pete his ‘idol’, adding: ‘He’s a hero of mine. I can’t believe he wants my body. It’s turned full circle – I’m well happy.’
Friends now fear Katie’s decision to pursue Gavin – a younger model who Pete himself has said is in better shape – could be a deliberate slap in the face to her ex.
This latest saga comes with relations between Pete and Katie, 34, having reached their lowest point in years.
Katie’s currently suing Pete, claiming he orchestrated a ‘smear campaign’ against her after their 2009 split.
He denies the claim, saying in his court papers he can prove she had, or at least contemplated, an affair with married riding instructor Andrew Gould while they were together.
Katie and Andrew strenuously deny that claim.
