Katie Price denies messaging Gareth Gates 17 years after taking his virginity

Katie Price has denied sending flirty message to newly-single Gareth Gates – 17 years after taking his virginity.

The former glamour model was pregnant with her eldest son Harvey when she slept with the Pop Idol star, who was then aged 18.

And after his split from fiancée Faye Brookes and after she dumped her fiancé Kris Boyson, it was said she'd been reaching out to Gareth on WhatsApp while on holiday with latest squeeze Charles Drury.

However, representatives for Katie tell Mirror Online there's no truth in the reports.

Katie and Gareth hooked up in 2002 and the fling was made public when he was seen sneaking out of her hotel room on CCTV.

Gareth, who was a virgin before his encounter with Katie, was so embarrassed that he threatened legal action, but accepted it was true a year later.

He admitted he'd denied it because he didn't want his family to find out about his sex life.

Gareth and Coronation Street star Faye split earlier this month.

She later told her fans she's been distracting herself from the drama by hitting the gym.

"It’s been a really weird week," she wrote to her followers. "I’ve been throwing myself into the gym pretty much everyday, anyone who knows me knows how much I love training and keeping fit!

"It’s great for your physical and mental health. I’m a member of several gyms in Manchester including the fab Barry’s Bootcamp.

"So (yesterday) there was a pap outside the gym when I got there, taking pictures of me & getting very excited with his camera because I walked in with one of the trainers from the gym – who is a friend."

The Corrie star begged for her fans to give her some time to herself while she mended her heart following the break up. She added: "Just let a girl be, please."

Katie and Kris recently split, with reports that she cheated on him with her new fella Charlie.
