Alex Reid has a ''dream'' of working closely with schools to help improve children's fitness
Alex Reid wants to be "like Jamie Oliver".
The cage fighter - who married Katie Price in a surprise Las Vegas ceremony in February - dreams of working closely with schools in a bid to improve children's health and fitness in a similar way to how the chef revolutionised British school meals.
Alex said: "I'd like to be like Jamie Oliver - what he's done for kids in the kitchen, I want to do for them in the gym. I have a dream! And I hope people don't think it is unrealistic, because I believe in myself."
In addition to improving the fitness of kids, Alex is helping his wife get fitter so they are both in their best shape for their wedding vow renewal service later this year.
He explained: "Katie and I are on a diet and she has also started doing kick boxing with me.
"She wants to tone up and have a super sexy body for the wedding. I think she's mad as she looks great already but if it makes her happier I'm fine with that."
Alex, 34, also has plans to open his own gym soon, which he will run alongside training for his cage fighting and his television projects.
