Katie Price, who is engaged to Argentine model Leandro Penna, is rumoured to have struck up a close 'friendship' with X Factor contestant Dan Ferrari-Lane.
Dan is a member of heartthrob boyband District3, and is said to be lapping up attention from the glamour model. According to the Sunday Mirror, the 34 year-old has been sending suggestive text messages to the X finalist.
Katie has become friendly with several X Factor finalists since visiting the studios to support her friend Rylan Clark, hanging out with them backstage and offering her support.
The paper alleges that Dan has been enjoying her visits more than anyone. Katie is said to have begun sending Dan saucy messages after they met at the Corinthia Hotel two weeks ago. Sources close to the teenager admit that he is 'shocked and excited' that the former glamour model is interested in him.
One of the messages reportedly said: "I must say your (sic) looking good this morning xx." In another, the glamour model told him not to worry about their connection, as she had no plans to tell anyone that she was messaging him. Especially not her fiance, we imagine.
The publication also claims that the mother-of-three, who is also currently staying at the central London hotel, invited the singer into her room, where they watched a movie with pal Rylan.
A source told the paper: 'Katie seems to be enjoying building up friendships with several of this year’s X Factor contestants.
"But she certainly seems to have clicked in particular with Dan. It’s clearly all a bit a fun between the pair of them." We're not sure her fiance will find this fun, at all...
A spokesperson for Katie Price has denied that the allegations... what do you think, readers?
