Katie Price reportedly wants to date a footballer or X Factor singer after Kieran Hayler split

But the model's hit back at the claims in typical Pricey style

| Updated:

Katie Price only dumped her cheating husband Kieran Hayler two weeks ago but already it’s been claimed she’s on the hunt for a new man.

According to The Sun, the mum of five has been asking pals to introduce her to worthy suitors following her shock split from Kieran.

Sources claim the 39-year-old is particularly keen to meet a footballer or emerging singer – and also has her eye on former Big Brother housemate Lotan Carter.

However, an amused Katie appeared to dismiss the claims with a sassy tweet on Tuesday, saying: “Just focusing on my kids and my family.

“Have a day off with your ‘sources’ lol. Think you need some new ones!”

We take it she’s not going after Lotan or Tottenham’s Harry Winks then?!

A source had told The Sun that Katie has asked pals to let Lotan and Harry know she’s single and interested – but she isn’t putting all her eggs in one basket.

“She’s eyeing up the fresh faces on X Factor too – she loves a man who can sing, as everyone knows,” said the insider.

“She’d like to date a footballer, as they have their own money and they’re fit, but she’s met Lotan a few times in the past and thinks he’d be a laugh too.”

Although Katie appears to have denied looking for a new man already, she did joke on Loose Women earlier this month that she likes to move on quickly after relationships end.

When the panel spoke about men moving on quicker than women following splits, Katie interrupted to quip: “Apart from me! I marry after five weeks!”

Katie announced her split from Kieran at the end of August, accusing him of cheating on her with their kids’ nanny.

The heartbroken ex glamour model accused Kieran of bedding Nikki Brown behind her back, three years after she forgave Kieran for having an affair with her best friend, Jane Pountney.

“I was gutted. For a year I was basically paying her to [expletive] my husband,” she told The Sun On Sunday.

“Kieran told me they were [expletive] all over my house for a year.”

Nikki, however, has vehemently denied anything happened, telling Mail Online: “It’s all just a complete lie. It’s a little story that comes from her head. I am going to clear my name.”

Although Katie forgave Kieran for his infidelity in 2014, she has vowed there’s no going back this time.

She tweeted this week that her friends were encouraging her to sign up for a dating app.

However, Kieran’s not quite ready to say goodbye, it would seem, as he reacted to her dating app tweet with a series of broken heart emojis posted to Instagram.

Katie, meanwhile, has told fans she’s focused on family and her kids right now.

She and Kieran share son Jett, four, and daughter Bunny, two, while she’s also mum to sons Harvey, 15, and Junior, 12, and daughter Princess, ten, from previous relationships.

As well as coping with her impending divorce, Katie is coming to terms with a miscarriage she had just four days before Kieran’s betrayal was revealed.

Tragically, her beloved mum Amy has also been diagnosed with a terminal lung condition.

Appearing with Amy on Loose Women last week, a devastated Katie said: “She’s so fit and healthy. I don’t think it has hit me yet.”

Amy has been diagnosed with Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a condition which scars the lungs and makes breathing difficult.

Her doctor told the family the prognosis is three to four years on average after diagnosis, but that can vary dependent on patient and treatment.

Amy is clearly very much in Katie’s thoughts as the star shared six heartfelt messages to Instagram in the last few days about the importance of mothers.

One read: “Always love your mother as you’ll never get another.”

Another said: “The older I grow, the more I realise my mother is the best friend I ever had.”

Aww.
