Alex Reid is struggling to "move on" following the breakdown of his marriage to Katie Price.
The cage fighter - who split with the former glamour model in January after less than a year of marriage - has admitted he still loves Katie but hopes he will eventually get over the heartbreak of their separation.
In an interview with the Daily Star newspaper, he said: "The only thing I will say about her is that I just hope that she finds what she's looking for. And I know I will move on too eventually.
"Obviously it's been a pants time, just recently. I mean it's been like a storm and the storm is passing now.
"This isn't a great time right now but just around the corner I know it's going to be really great again. The sky is blue and I knew it would be one day."
Although Alex misses his estranged wife and her children - Harvey, eight, Junior, five, and three-year-old Princess Tiaamii - he is ready to throw himself back into the dating scene and is keen to have a good time.
He said: "I'm a single guy, I want to have some fun. I am enjoying myself but I am not ready for love yet. But I am a normal guy with urges, yes. Never say never and if I found love then great. If it's a celebrity or not, it doesn't matter if I love someone.
"I'm not closed to the idea of love, I will love again. I am not ready to think about marriage yet."
