The 31-year-old former stripper claimed his estranged wife talked about the 'Mysterious Girl' singer - the father of her children Junior, 13, and 11-year-old Princess, who she married in 2005 - every day during their marriage, making him think her first husband was the true "love of her life", even though they split less than four years after tying the knot.

Kieran - who has Jett, five, and four-year-old Bunny with Katie - told The Sun newspaper: "There is not a day that went by in five years that I was married to Kate that she didn't mention his name.

"Not saying in a positive way because it pretty much was never positive.

"But, for somebody to talk about their ex-husband so much, it almost makes you think that maybe he was the love of her life and she never got over that."

Katie - who has 16-year-old son Harvey with former boyfriend Dwight Yorke - was also married to Alex Reid and engaged to Leandro Penna before she met Kieran, and her estranged husband suggested they were also regular topics of conversation, though never as frequent as her mentions of Peter.

He added: "But that's Katie Price and that's her mind and no-one will ever get in that mind of hers, and I'm telling you that right now.

"Her mind is very much her mind. There wasn't a day that went past in five years that an ex didn't come up and predominantly it was Pete, pretty much.

"And of course he's going to, because of the kids, but most people in their relationships, if there is an ex-husband or an ex-partner, you don't talk about them because you don't want to talk about them.

"But it makes you think, did she want to talk about him? Did she miss him?

"Was he still in her head all the time? I don't know. I guess maybe she never got over him."

Kieran's comments come after Kris Boyson, who dated Katie, 40, for a few months earlier this year, recently claimed the 'Loose Women' star had been left "damaged" by the end of her marriage to Peter.

He said: "She had such a hard time after Pete, I reckon she has really struggled from that.

"I think that was really mentally hard for her and I think that damaged her the most."
