The mum-of-five reportedly dumped her tomboy Kris Boyson via text so she could cavort with a new young man in Turkey... and it seems she's been eyeing up the Pop Idol winner, too...

Katie Price’s tumultuous love life continues after she has reportedly been sending flirty messages to her ex, newly-single Gareth Gates.

Following his split from Faye Brooks [pictured below], the ex-glamour model apparently got in touch with the singer in the early hours of the morning.

After dumping her fiancé, Kris Boyson [pictured below], by text, who she has dated for more than a year, it is said that she reached out to Gareth on WhatsApp while on holiday in Turkey with her latest toyboy lover, Charlie Drury.

The 41-year-old star met Charlie through another builder who has been carrying out work on her mansion in West Sussex.

The news comes 17 years after Katie took Gareth’s virginity while she was pregnant with her son, Harvey. The pair, who hooked up in 2002 when Gareth was 17 years old, were found out when the Pop Idol runner-up was seen sneaking out of her hotel room on CCTV.

After finding out Gareth is single again, Katie apparently sent him ‘flirty banter’ and started to call him at 4am after having one too many drinks, while on holiday with Charlie.

The star, who revealed on Loose Women she was engaged, ended her engagement to Kris after falling for builder Charlie, even though she said that she and Kris were "trying for twins", has worried friends and family with her recent erratic behaviour, with many of them thinking she may be having a mid-life crisis.
