Alex Reid believes that he worked as a British spy in a previous life, it has emerged.

The cage-fighter – who is married to glamour model Katie Price – was once hypnotised on TV and told host Jane Goldman how he had been working undercover in Nazi Germany during World War II.

Appearing on ‘Jane Goldman Investigates’ in 2003, Alex, 34, became convinced of his previous existence and spoke in details of what it was like.

Speaking in a trance, Alex said: “It’s like I’m by the sea. It’s the 30s or 40s.”

When asked whether he had been at work that day, the reality TV star replied: “I don’t want to talk about work. Stressful. When you said work I just saw submarines and dark and black.”

His mood became more sombre and he mumbled: “I miss my family. They’re safe. It must be war. I’m English. I’m an agent. British Intelligence. Deutschland.”

“I’ve got a German uniform on. Grenade. Something’s burning – a lorry. My head hurts. I’m cut. I’ve got a big gash on my leg. I’m pumping but now I’m tired.”

Afterwards, Alex explained: “Oh my God. Wow. That was very weird. Amazing! I’m very open to that being my past life. It was interesting.”
