A man has been arrested after attempting to use stolen, sexually-explicit photos of former British glamour model-turned-reality Tv star Katie Price to blackmail her.

The new mother, 35, recently turned to police for help after discovering a set of raunchy images of herself and a former lover had disappeared, and were being used to try and extort a third party.

Cops have since managed to track down one suspect in the case and Price took to her Twitter.com page on Wednesday morning (18Sep13) to share the news with fans, writing, "Somebody has been arrested and charged about blackmailing to use these stolen pictures so a step closer to who stole them (sic)".

It is not yet known which of Price's exes is featured in the steamy snapshots, but she insists her new husband, Kieran Hayler, is unfazed by the controversy.

She adds, "For the record im (sic) Not worried about any sex pictures and it's Not affecting my relationship, I'm sure... (the ex in question) would be worried."

Price and Hayler, who welcomed their son Jett eight weeks premature last month (Aug13), wed in the Bahamas in January (13) after a whirlwind romance. The mum of four was previously engaged to Argentine model Leandro Penna, and was married to cage fighter Alex Reid and Australian singer Peter Andre.

It's not the first time Price's bedroom antics have been exposed to the public - a sex tape filmed with ex-boyfriend Dane Bowers was stolen from their apartment in 1999.
