Katie Price's close pals have told the former glamour model she should break up with her cagefighter boyfriend Alex.
TV builder Phil Turner and his partner, Katie's stylist Gary Cockerill say they think Alex is a "doormat".
"Katie has really been through it this year. She loved Peter Andre and this divorce has been so hard for her," says best friend Phil.
"Katie needs a man around her, she is always telling us that. But Alex is not the one for her. She needs to find someone else.
"She doesn't care about being the breadwinner - none of that matters to her. She just needs a real man to dominate her, to take control and stand up to her, and look after her. She doesn't need a doormat.
"Katie keeps changing her mind about Alex. She's lonely since splitting up with Pete and I can understand that. But I wish she would find someone else.
"Katie is one of my closest friends and I will always be here for her no matter what."
