KATIE Price is determined to win her feud with Love Island’s Chris Hughes – and claims the reality star is using her to boost his profile.
The pair have been at war on Twitter ever since Chris shared messages sent to him from Katie.
His latest rant saw him brand Katie a liar over her claims she has dozens of flirty messages from him, and claim she left threatening voice notes declaring she’ll “ruin” his and Olivia Attwood’s careers.
“Katie’s furious at Chris’s reaction,” an insider tells The Sun Online.
“She thinks he’s talking about her to get publicity for his TV show and single.
“She’s telling all her friends that she’s the victim here, and she’s sick of being used.
“Katie won’t stop until she’s had the last laugh and shown everyone what Chris is really like.”
Heading a lengthy note posted to Twitter with: “I done with this s*** now. You’re looking to get back at me, your desperate. Stop sending threatening voice notes to my girlfriend too.”
Chris then fired an outburst defending himself and filled with allegations.
He wrote: “Katie Price get your head out your arse and focus on your own life, you children and stop harassing myself and Olivia.
“I outed you because that’s what I do when I get accused of lying or being told I’m not telling the truth.
“I have no shame or embarrassment showing those messages you sent me. I have no regrets either so just accept that someone’s stood up to you and called you out on it.
“You’re making up lies, you’ve lived your life through the years. Focus on yourself. I couldn’t care about you in the slightest.”
He continued: “You’ve showed your true colours. Go away, make up s*** about me, show everyone these bulls*** messages you’ve created.
“For anyone with half a brain cell on Snapchat you can add someone via your contacts.
“That way you’ll see I haven’t sent you anything.”
Emphasising that there’ll be no backing down, he went on: “B**** about me, call me names, tell every paper this bulls***, I stand by who I am and I’m not going to let someone like you mug me off.
“Accept the fact you’ve shown colours in those messages I released last week and stop looking to equalise.
“I’m done with your bulls***.
“Leave me and my girlfriend alone to live our lives and don’t threaten her again saying you will destroy our careers.
“You’ve been shamed, live with it, move on.”
This comes as the 39-year-old teased there was more to come in the message saga as she watched ITV drama Liar last night – after Chris, 22, denied responding to her.
She wrote: “Omg I’m watching Liar I love it #51screenshots #allreplies #totalcontradiction #neverunderestimatethepricey.”
The former glamour model and Love Island star have been locked in a bitter feud after Katie – who admitted on Loose Women that she fancied Chris – denied sending him flirty messages, only for Chris to share the apparently one sided exchange on social media.
Katie later hinted that Chris had blocked her amid the drama and it seems she’s not ready to drop it just yet.
Just a few days before claiming she had ’51 screenshots’, Katie tweeted that the truth would come out in the end.
She wrote: “You think you’re having fun & games then block me but just remember the truth always comes out…I’m sitting back & [laughing] #screenshots #replies. (sic)”
The star previously used the social media platform to claim “no flirty texts were sent” to Chris, which prompted him to post screenshots of her WhatsApp messages.
In the messages, Katie urged Chris to “be careful” of people who are interested in exploiting him, and even told him to let her know if he would rather she didn’t contact him.
She wrote: “Hey Chris I got your number from a mutual friend I loved meeting you the other day and would love to go shooting if offer still there !
“I don’t think your getting my messages are you? I think they are getting deleted I’m not here to cause trouble at all ! Yes you know I like you !
“And here for any advice too ! You will just get people wanting to make money out of you so just try be careful ! Hope to hear from you and if you don’t want me to tex or be in Touch I’d rather you tell me xxx (sic)”
After Chris failed to respond to her message, Katie sent a further message some time later, insisting she’s “not after” him.
The message read: “Hey don’t worry I’m not after you it was a faze lol but you on a club PA ? I am too and it’s sooo late where you? I’m in Darlington (sic)”
Chris later said he had no regrets about exposing Katie because he believes her contact with him was inappropriate.
