Kris Boyson was ready to propose to Katie Price before they split up.

The 29-year-old fitness trainer began dating the former glamour model in May and despite their whirlwind romance, he was so ''committed'' to her, he even had an engagement ring made and planned to ask her dad permission to pop the question.

He said: ''I took her to Bruges for her 40th and that's when it became official.

''From then on we would talk about getting married and having kids. We would talk about it all the time.

''She always said she wanted the fairytale ending and she wanted to live happily ever after.

''She always used to say, 'So we are going to get married one day, yeah?'

''And I was like, 'Yeah, that's why I'm in this relationship'. I'm serious and I'm fully committed. It's tough because I was set on that.''

Kris had carefully planned his proposal because Katie - who was previously married to Peter Andre, Alex Reid and Kieran Hayler and was engaged to Leandro Penna - felt she had never been ''properly'' engaged.

He told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: ''Katie said she had never been engaged properly. It had all been for TV, so I wanted to surprise her and propose to her.

''One of my mates is a jeweller in Hatton Garden and he was doing the ring.

''I was ready to go and speak to her dad and ask for his permission. I think deep down she knew I was getting an engagement ring made.''

But three weeks ago, Katie - who has children Harvey, 16, Junior, 13, Princess,11, Jett, five, and four-year-old Bunny - began staying out late without Kris.

He said: ''She was going out all night and not messaging me until she got home at 2am. I started to think something was up.''

And after she was pictured holding hands with Alex Adderson, 25, last month, she apologised and ''begged'' Kris to take her back.

Kris said: ''That day she was apologising and begging me to take her back. She wanted me to give her another chance and said she had just had dinner with him.

''So I said, 'You know what? I will give you another chance'.''

The pair then took a holiday in Scotland and had a heart-to-heart, where Kris joked he would ''stop making that engagement ring'', prompting the 'Loose Women' panelist to reassure him he was still ''the one'' for her.

But things ended days later when Katie reunited with Alex in Spain.

Kris said: ''As soon as we got back things weren't right. We flew back on the Tuesday together and she said, 'Love you loads'.

''I said, 'Love you too and I will speak to you later'.

''And I didn't speak to her until midnight that night. And then the next day she flew out to Marbella for a hen do and I knew he was out there all along. Two days later I text her saying, 'I'm in love with you, I want to have kids with you, we've got so many plans ahead'.

''But she never responded. That's the last time I messaged her.''
