I Am Alex Reid

10:00pm Tuesday, December 21 on LIVING

Cage fighter, Celebrity Big Brother contestant, high profile husband to glamour girl Katie Price and TV presenter – Alex Reid has a diverse CV. But what will be the next move following his gruelling five-round cagefight against Tom ‘Kong’ Watson? LIVING concludes its documentary special I Am Alex Reid this week, which takes an intimate look at the real man behind the celebrity image and follows him as he decides on where his career goes next.

The two-part TV event attempts to find out what makes Alex Reid tick, revealing the truth about one of the most talked about British celebrities of 2010. It lifts the lid on both the hectic, paparazzi-fuelled life he shares with his famous wife, as well as his quiet moments at home. With his fighter’s physique Reid may look like a tough-as-nails bruiser, but in reality he is a true family man, maintaining a startlingly normal life amid all the tabloid coverage. He remains close to his parents and siblings, even staying at the family home when his wife is away working.

With family the top priority for Alex, he struggles to balance career opportunities with his desire to stay close to those he loves. Alex needs to channel his considerable energy into a new direction and, with his brother Rupert by his side, he is determined to sort through a huge pile of business and job offers. The recession may have slowed down the country’s economy but Alex is not feeling the pinch. In fact, he has many offers, including acting roles, merchandising deals and even the possibility of owning his own gym. The brothers Reid go job-hunting in front of LIVING cameras this week. What will be the next step in the impressive career of Alex Reid?
