KATIE Price has enjoyed a string of secret dates with a hunky 25-year-old behind Kris Boyson’s back.
The Sun Online can exclusively reveal Katie, 40, has traded in 29-year-old personal trainer Kris for minted high-flyer Alex Adderson.
Former glamour model Katie met the loaded hunk through mutual friends a few weeks ago and the pair are said to have “hit it off” immediately.
On Tuesday, Katie was pictured holding Alex’s hand as they left The Blue Boar in Abridge.
But that’s just one of the dates Katie has enjoyed with Alex, who counts Towie’s Sam Mucklow and Jake Hall among his best pals.
Alex has taken Katie for fancy nights out in central London and told punters in The Blacksmiths Arms in Adversane on Thursday that she was “dumping Kris” for her hot new man.
One of his friends, who asked not to be named, told The Sun Online: “Katie met Alex through friends and they really hit it off.
“They’ve been on a few secret dates together and Katie is really into him. Alex comes from a rich family and has been brought up well, he’s a gentleman and has been spoiling Katie.
Her low-key romance with Alex is likely to infuriate Kris, who pals said went ballistic after seeing pictures of Katie and Alex in Essex.
Alex’s friend added: “He’s playing it cool and hasn’t told many people he’s been seeing Katie.
“He said Katie told him she was using Kris to make her ex Kieran jealous. She’s reassured him she is ending it between them and that she’s not into him anymore.”
As well as their loved up date in Essex, Katie boasted about her relationship with Alex in The Blacksmiths Arms, close to Billingshurst near her home, on Thursday.
One onlooker told The Sun Online: “Katie was drinking red wine with pals and was really letting her hair down.
“A couple of people who recognised her went up and asked who her handsome, mystery bloke was. Katie told everyone it was her new man.
“When someone asked about Kris she told him she was dumping him for her new guy!”
Katie’s romance with Kris began after she kicked out her cheating ex-husband Kieran Hayler.
Their whirlwind relationship saw them fly off to Thailand for a loved up holiday and Kris was even introduced to Katie’s mum Amy.\
Kris has also supported Katie while she tries to avoid bankruptcy after blowing her £45million fortune.
But despite being almost inseparable for the past two months, Alex’s friends told The Sun Online their relationship was as good as over.
The pal added: “Katie told Alex it was over between her and Kris. She’s over that now and has told Alex she’s only got eyes for him.
“Katie’s a very charming woman and it’s not hard to see why Alex is so into her.”
The Sun Online has contacted Katie’s representatives for comment.
