Alex Reid claims Katie Price's former best friend ''tried it on'' with him.

The former glamour model was left devastated last week when she discovered her married pal Jane Pountney had been having an affair with her husband Kieran Hayler - the father of her unborn baby and youngest child, nine-month-old son Jett, - and now her second husband has claimed she used to flirt with him too.

Speaking to the new issue of OK! magazine, Alex said: ''Jane is very flirtatious! Jane tried it on with me, but I never considered it.''

And the cage fighter - who was married to Katie for just under a year until they split in January 2011 - claims Jane used to say ''unkind'' things about his then-wife.

He added: ''Jane could be two-faced - she'd say things about Kate that I thought were unkind''

Alex still cares for his former spouse, who has three other children from previous relationships - and feels very ''sad'' for her current situation.

The hunk - who has a young daughter, Dolly, with his ex-fiancee Chantelle Houghton - said: ''At six months pregnant, Katie must be devastated - I feel nothing but sadness for her. I'll always have love in my heart for Katie.''

It was recently claimed that Katie was convinced Jane wanted to have ''flings'' with many of her other former partners.

Discussing claims she plans to consult a psychic about the future of her marriage, a source said: ''It's no laughing matter for her. She's desperate for answers. She thinks they're scheming to get their stories straight. And she says Jane would have liked flings with several of her exes - but only Kieran was stupid enough to fall for it.''
