Katie Price has thanked fans for their 'support at this dark time' after confirming her split from Alex Reid.

The mother-of-three took to Twitter this morning to briefly comment on the break-up, filling in followers on her feelings.

She wrote: 'Morning thanks for the support at this sad time!hope you have great day!its freezing outside hate getting up when its dark x'

Grateful: Katie took to Twitter this morning to thank fans for their support

In a statement confirming she and Alex had split after 11 months and 19 days of marriage, Katie yesterday said cagefighter Alex had changed during their relationship, and became obsessed with a 'desire to promote himself'.

When the couple started dating in July 2009 - just eight weeks after she split from first husband Peter Andre - Reid was a cagefighter and struggling actor.

But the model claims his 'desire to promote himself caused a change in the dynamic of our relationship and contributed to our alienation'.

In fact, as well as appearing regularly on Katie's ITV2 reality show, Alex even attempted to further his own career by appearing on Celebrity Big Brother last year, of which he was eventually crowned the winner.

In an extraordinarily lengthy 600-word statement confirming the split, the 32-year-old model conceded she married the sportsman 'too quickly', adding that Alex 'changed' from the 'man I fell in love with'.

Katie issued a statement yesterday evening after Reid, 35, was photographed moving out of the couple's Surrey home and back to his parents' house in Hampshire, earlier that day.

The reality TV star admitted the couple had suffered a 'number of difficulties over the past few months', including going through in vitro fertilisation in a bid to have a child together.

Their separation comes a few weeks after they flew to a secret Indian Ocean location for a 'make or break' holiday.

Upon their return to England, the model told followers on her Twitter page that reports about her marriage being in 'crisis' were true.

Busy: Various cars, including a police vehicle, were parked outside the property

Price said she and Reid planned to release a joint statement announcing their separation over the weekend, but had been persuaded to wait by her husband, who needed time to think.

But after Reid was photographed teaching her five-year-old son Junior to fight in the gym, Price changed her mind.

She said: 'I had hoped that Alex and I could remain friends but I am not sure if that is possible given events since last Sunday...

'...The intervening period has, however, seen a number of false stories appear and photographs of Alex with my son Junior in the gym which it is absolutely clear were posed for.

'Alex is fully aware that I have sought to remove my children from the public eye now they are of an age to understand and be affected by media coverage of them.'

Helping hands: Alex's parents Carol and Bob helped unload the bags, along with a policeman, who was there to keep the media away from the property
