    The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' winner has had to move his beloved mum Carol Reid into a care home so she can receive specialist support for the degenerative brain condition which affects a person's memory and speech


    Alex - who is in a long-term relationship with personal trainer Nikki Manashe - admits it can be heart-breaking to see his mother and he feels "guilt" that he is not looking after her himself but he knows she is getting the care that she needs.

    In a Twitter post responding to news reports that actress Dame Barbara Windsor has been moved into a care home due to her Alzheimer's, he wrote: "I know how it feels moving mum into a home with dementia. Its worse than bereavement as their still here & so lost.

    "U feel an immense sense of guilt 2want 2do more.

    "I see how scared mum sometimes is,wanting to come home, but I see she how she is adapting & her quality of life improve. (sic)"

    The 44-year-old retired cage fighter - the ex-husband of Katie Price - received numerous messages of support from his Twitter followers following his post.

    One social media user wrote: "Pls don’t feel guilty. You just want to give her what she needs right now and it’s the best for her and her needs. (sic)"
