Jordan knows how to rile Pete

Friends fear Katie Price’s decision to publicly pursue Gavin Henson – a younger model who Peter Andre himself has said is in better shape – could be a deliberate slap in the face to her ex.

A friend of Pete’s says: ‘He’s happy with Emily [MacDonagh], 23and has obviously got much more important things on his mind, but Katie knows how to push his buttons, even if she doesn’t mean to.

‘She knows he has hang-ups about his looks and he hates her being public with guys because of the kids.’

Katie‘s latest PDA is particularly poignant after Pete, 39, told Now last week that Junior, seven, and Princess, five, haven’t even seen him kiss his girlfriend of five months Emily, adding: ‘There are ways to behave.’

A spokeswoman for Jordan downplayed the evening with Gavin, 30, saying: ‘She had a great night with friends – it turned into a long one.’
