Katie Price has revealed she is taking a break from Loose Women to deal with her marriage problems and go on a late honeymoon with Kieran Hayler.
The mum-of-five opened up about how difficult she has found reliving her husband’s affairs while on her book tour for Reborn.
She announced on the ITV daytime show that she will be taking a month off to go on holiday with her husband – who she mistakenly referred to as ex Peter Andre during the chat – and spend time with her family before they go for therapy.
“The past two weeks I’ve been on my book tour and it’s opened up some wounds. It’s been awful. I thought I’d dealt with it. I was numb when it all happened. I’m quite good at putting up a defence. But it’s been torture.
“This has been so difficult. I haven’t got any tears to cry. My heart is shattered, it’s broken. We’ve come two and a half years and Kieran is having to re-live it.
“We are going to see a therapist to reassure us we’re fine,” she added.
“It’s a relief to me to admit I’m not as strong as people think. Enough is enough. I have to let my barriers down.
“I’m going away with Kieran on a belated honeymoon and to spend time with the kids. I want to help Kieran through this as well. It’s been tough on us both. It’s been turbulent.”
The former glamour model lashed out after finding her best friend performing a sex act on husband Kieran Hayler during a family holiday in Cape Verde back in 2014.
Kieran, a former stripper, had a seven-month affair with Jane behind Katie’s back, leaving her “shattered”.
Katie, 38, has admitted she will never forgive her husband but they have tried to work through their problems and have remained together.
Speaking to Rob McGibbon during An Evening with Katie Price in Liverpool, the mum-of-five relived the moment she caught her friend of 20 years “w***ing off” her husband on a sun lounger on the beach.
Katie, who was six months pregnant at the time, said: “I was looking at Jane, punching her, but in my head I was like ‘What are you doing? She’s your best friend.’”
Katie then ran off down the beach and confronted her friend for a second time that night in her villa. By this time, Jane’s husband Derrick had arrived.
“I went over to her villa with Derrick. She looked at me in front of Derrick and then she suddenly said ‘Does Kieran still fancy me?’
“Derrick went off to get Kieran. As he went out Jane got up, ruffled her hair and went and sat on the table. And I was like ‘What are you doing yourself up for?’ And then Kieran came in holding [nine-month-old] Jett and then I said ‘Right, so who text who first?’ But Jane wouldn’t say anything. Kieran said he started it but she carried on.
“And then Kieran said right, I’m going back. As Kieran walked out she went to go with him and said wait for me.
“I got up and proper got her. I thought I was a cage fighter or something. And she’s saying ‘Kieran help me, Kieran help me!’ Not Derrick, her husband.
“I was that angry I just clutched her hair. I’m not hard but I’ve done training.
“And then Kieran called security. The worst thing is Jane’s two kids came in and they saw me attacking their mum.
“Security walked in and I just wouldn’t get off her. Then they managed to pull me off and she ran into a room.
“The woman looking after us, I said to her ‘Have you seen Jane? And she said ‘Yeah’. I said ‘What state is she in? And she said that she had a black eye and I knocked her tooth out.”
Katie revealed she had to stay in Cape Verde for two weeks with Jane while they waited to catch a flight home.
She then made Kieran take a lie detector test to uncover the full extent of his infidelities. It emerged how he had sex with Jane in Katie’s kitchen while she was upstairs bathing their children.
Katie – who has children Jett, two, and Bunny, 23 months, with Kieran, as well as Harvey, 14, Junior, 11, and Princess, nine, from past relationships – insists she doesn’t dwell on her spouse’s cheating and things between them are better than ever.
But she added: “My heart will be broken for many years. Shattered. It has definitely not healed but it is sort of stitched together. It will do.”
