ALEX Reid has been released without charge after he was arrested over a disturbance with his girlfriend, ex Big Brother star Chantelle Houghton.

The 37-year-old (below) was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and using violence to gain entry to the couple's home in Essex.

Houghton (29) who has an 11-week-old daughter named Dolly with Reid, recently told OK! magazine that her relationship with the former husband of Katie Price has been "strained".

A statement on Reid's website said: "In the early hours of the morning Alex was arrested at the address he shares with his partner, Chantelle Houghton after she called police following a disturbance.

"Alex considers this a private matter and therefore is not prepared to comment on it save to say that he assisted police with their inquiries and the police have taken no further action."
