Katie Price joins a dating app but admits finding it “uncomfortable” and “boring”

She's been swiping...

Katie Price raised eyebrows on today’s Loose Women after joining a dating website.

The former glamour model, 39, who is still married to third husband Kieran Hayler, signed up for a dating app this week but admitted finding the whole thing “uncomfortable”.

On Wednesday’s show, fellow Loose Woman Ruth Langsford explained: “Katie has never been on a dating app so Katie and Stacey (Solomon) were talking about getting on a dating app.

“Stacey said she’d help her set one up, so Katie set one up.”

Stacey, who is dating fellow TV star Joe Swash, interjected to point out: “I’m not an expert, by the way! I’m happily in a relationship!”

Katie then said she wasn’t impressed with online dating so far.

“I’m actually bored already with swiping,” she said.

Linda Robson then told her: “You’re really fussy, aren’t you?”

Stacey added: “Your net is too small! You need a bigger net so you can catch more fish, do you see what I mean?”

When asked if anybody had caught her attention, Katie said: “No. I feel quite uncomfortable. I’m not used to it. I think I would probably rather meet someone through friends, organically.

“I couldn’t just meet someone on there and go (meet them in person), no way.

“I think when I’m ready to properly date what I’ll do is put an ad out there myself with the tick box of exactly what I want.”

Sadly, the show had to end there so we never got to hear just what Katie wants in a man!

There was no word on whether Katie had joined the app purely for the Loose Women discussion or whether it was an indication of where her marriage to Kieran currently stands.

The mum of five was heartbroken last year when she found out Kieran had cheated on her.

It came just three years after she took him back following another betrayal, when he bedded her best friend.

Since then, rumours about their marriage have continued to swirl, but she has never officially confirmed just where they stand.

In an interview with Reveal magazine at Christmas, she said: “The Kieran that I know, I love. The other Kieran [who cheats] is horrible. It’s just so far away from the man I married.”

In the same chat she also said: “I think about leaving him, throwing him out. But then I think, at the end of the day, he’s a good dad, we’re a good team and he wouldn’t want a life with the other person [he cheated on her with].”

The couple, who wed in 2013, have two children.

Katie is also mother to three other kids from previous relationships.
