Single and ready to... cuddle up to her ex: Katie Price celebrates divorce from Alex Reid by taking 'friend' Leandro Penna to the polo

By Emily Sheridan

Tender: Leandro Penna plants a kiss on Katie Price's cheek as they watch the HPA Gaucho International Polo at London's O2 Arena last night

She's finally single after waiting 14 months for her divorce from Alex Reid.

And despite her protestations that she isn't a relationship, the model did little to dispel the opposite as she cuddled up to on/off lover Leandro Penna at the polo last night.

The mother-of-three, 33, and Argentine model, 26, looked very cosy as they sat beside each other in a private box at the HPA Gaucho International Polo at London's O2 Arena.

Next to me: Despite the mode's insistence they're 'just friends', their body language last night suggested otherwise

As they watched the action on the field, Penna's arm was draped across Price's white denim-clad legs.

It must have made an interesting conversation for the pair as Argentina played England during the match, with the latter eventually triumphing.

Tweeting a photo of herself with a blonde friend, Price enthused: 'Enjoyed the Polo tonight! England WON wooo.'

Her outing to the polo came a day after she and ex-husband Reid were granted a decree nisi at London's High Court.

Ironically, it took longer for the couple to divorce than they had actually been married.

The divorce was granted on the grounds of Reid's 'unreasonable behaviour', but it will be another five weeks before it is finalised with a decree absolute.

Price started dating Penna in March 2010 - just six weeks after announcing her split from Reid after 11 months of marriage.

They originally dated for six months, with Price even getting a tattoo of his name on her ankle, before splitting last autumn.

However, they've frequently been photographed putting on displays of affection together since January.

When asked about their relationship on Daybreak earlier this month, Price said: 'No I'm single.

'But he's still around but he's one of these people who when we go clay pigeon shooting and when I win he's very touchy and I'm like "get off Leo". So no, it's a laugh and he is about but I am single.'
