Police have confirmed to OK! Online that they are investigating an alleged incident of “harassment through the disclosure of a private act”, after Katie Price allegedly played a TV studio audience a sex tape of her ex husband Alex Reid, 42.
According to The Sun, the incident allegedly took place when the Loose Women star was invited as a guest on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side on January 9.
The Loose Women star and cage fighter wed in 2010 and divorced after 12 months.
Witnesses say she played a clip of Reid off her own accord.
One witness told the publication: “She had asked us if we wanted to see it, and none of us replied.
“We all watched it, but we didn’t react. No one was laughing or cheering her on or anything like that.

The sourced added: “We didn’t want to encourage her.”
CBB host Emma Willis, 41, and reality star Paul Danan, 39, featured in the episode with Price.
It is not known who reported her to the authorities, but police confirmed she is under investigation, telling OK! Online: “Officers are investigating an allegation of harassment through the disclosure of a private act, which is reported to have occurred at Elstree Film Studios in Borehamwood between 10.30pm and 11pm on Tuesday, January 9.

“Enquiries are on-going and it would be inappropriate to comment any further at this stage.”
It comes after Katie faced parliament on a mission to convince MPs to criminalise online abuse. The Loose Women regular created a petition last year after her son, Harvey, was subjected to trolling on social media, calling for the government to make it illegal to troll people online.
And on Tuesday, she appeared on various news channels before heading to present her case to the petition select committee – prompting fans to praise her for her efforts.
