Katie, 41, was declared bankrupt last week and is worrying about the heating and electricity being switched off in her mucky mansion.

Her ex-husband is now said to have reached out to the former glamour model to show his support.

An insider said: "Pete had a feeling this was going to happen, but he is far from happy about it. He feels sorry for Katie."

They added to new! magazine: "He has a soft heart and, despite their differences, he wouldn't want to to see the mother of his kids suffer."

Peter shares 14-year-old Junior and 12-year-old Princess with Katie, who he was married to between 2005 and 2009 after they met on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.

The insider added that Pete phoned Katie to share that he "was sad to hear about the bankruptcy" with the mother-of-five thanking him for getting in touch.

Peter is said to have reassured Katie that "he's happy to look after Junior and Princess financially" and that she doesn't need to worry about them at all during this difficult time.

Despite his kind offer, the Mysterious Girl hitmaker "made it clear" that he won't be providing Katie with money directly as he fears that she will go "off the rails" with partying.

Katie went bankrupt after failing to pay back spiralling debts – despite being worth £45m at the height of her career.

She was supposed to be paying back £12,000 a month to her creditors as part of her IVA – but hasn’t done so.

She is believed to have debts of around £800,000 in total.
