Alex Reid has laughed off speculation he is ''addicted'' to beauty treatments, insisting he just likes to look good
Alex Reid is not vain.
The cage-fighter - who is married to glamour model Katie Price - has hit out at suggestions his wife wants him to look like her ex-husband Peter Andre, insisting he just likes to take care of himself.
He said: "The story about Kate turning me into a 'monster', wanting me to look like Peter and me becoming addicted to beauty treatments is totally untrue.
"Yeah, I like to look good and wear nice clothes, but I've just had a crew cut at the gym! As for tanning injections, yes I've had them, but I thoroughly researched them first, and I haven't had one for ages.
"I actually read that they had anti-carcinogenic properties. I'm into health. It's like anything - if you have a glass of wine a day, that's fine; but 20 glasses isn't. I don't like that dark tanned look that I had when I was on 'Big Brother' anyway. I prefer the natural look."
Alex - who won reality TV show 'Celebrity Big Brother' earlier this year - also denied he has turned his back on any of his friends since marrying Katie in February, but admits he has a different set of priorities now.
He said: "Now I'm married, my wife is my first priority - but that doesn't mean my friends aren't important. Of course they are!"
