Katie Price has revealed she has split from her boyfriend of two years, Argentine model Leandro Penna.

The 34-year-old confirmed on her website that despite having "a deep affection for each other" the couple had decided to part ways.

The former glamour model met the 27-year-old on a TV show in Argentina.

She blamed the couple's second break-up in just under two years on spending long periods apart from each other because of work and family issues.

Marriage plans

Earlier this year, the model and businesswoman tweeted that they were planning to get married.

Back in April she posted from her Twitter account: "No date for the wedding has been announced. Woooo hoooo so excited."

But in this latest statement about the couple's break-up she said: "Leo and I have had a lovely fun time for a couple of years, but sometimes relationships just run their course."

The mother-of-three blamed "pressures of work on different continents and natural demands of family ties".

However, she insisted that whoever the model ended up with would be "a very lucky girl", and denied rumours that their separation was anything to do with a boy band member.

"Accordingly we've mutually decided to call it a day, but we really wish each other nothing but the very best," she added.

Katie Price has been married twice before.

Her first marriage was to singer Pete Andre, who she has two children with.

Earlier this year she divorced second husband, cage fighter Alex Reid.
