Alex Reid has ended the year on a reflective note, saying he's looking forward to a fresh start with fiancée Nikki Manashe after having some tough times in the past.

The former Celebrity Big Brother winner is currently in a happy relationship with fitness trainer Nikki but life hasn't always been so drama-free for him…

Alex tweeted last night: "Sitting on sofa with future Mrs Reid reminiscing all the pain, misery & cheap crap that's happened in my life, looking forward to a new start!

"I've made some silly choices & take full responsibility for my own sadness & joy, but now have really good people around me who truly care."

Alex didn't elaborate on what "choices" or situations he was referring to.

The 39-year-old had already made a career for himself in MMA before he became a household name in 2010 thanks to a his winning appearance on Celebrity Big Brother.

He had been dating Katie Price since the previous year and, following his CBB success, the pair eloped in Las Vegas. The marriage lasted less than a year, however, with a separation announced in January 2011.

Alex previously was married to Katie Price.

That led to numerous headlines, stories and speculation about the cause of the split, some of which were less than flattering.

Alex moved on to date another CBB star, Chantelle Houghton, and their daughter Dolly was born in 2012. But that relationship then ended.

Now, it seems he is settled and happy with his fitness trainer fiancée. Their engagement was announced in November.
