A spokesperson for Katie Price told MailOnine: ‘They’re just friends and not romantically linked.’
Heavily tattooed Katie and Matty stayed in the bar until closing time before heading to nearby Balans restaurant on a rickshaw but they were not able to go in.
The mother-of-five was dressed in a grey tracksuit by JYY London for the night out and had a multitude of bags from Selfridges in her hand, suggesting the night out was an impromptu one.

She recently underwent her 16th breast augmentation surgery in Belgium, opting for 2120 CC implants in a bid to boost her already large bust size.
Katie recently said men are connected to the most challenging times in her life, describing her exes as her ‘downfall’.
Along with her split from Carl, 33, she is currently going through a difficult time with her former flame Kieran Hayler, 35, after he was spoken to by police amid their long-running dispute.

And Katie claims the most difficult times in her life are all linked to the men who have previously been in her life.
She told The Sunday Times: ‘You don’t have to be a genius to work out that men are the downfall in my life. A million per cent.
‘All my dramas, my bankruptcy — everything is men. Always men. That is it. When you see exes gloat around, knowing you’ve paid for stuff, that’s the worst torment for me.
‘My triggers, when I’ve gone downhill, are men.’
However, the former Celebrity Big Brother winner insists she no longer needs ‘validation’ from her partners.
Katie shared a post on social media this week which read: ‘Being easy, agreeable, and in a constant state of people pleasing felt normal to me.
‘I could be a nice person and feel like I was selfless.’
Katie confirmed she had split from her previously on-off fiancé earlier this month when she reportedly said she was single on a boozy night out in London.
Meanwhile, Matty Lee has stated he is heterosexual in the past and has a close friendship with his diving partner Tom Daley.
He said last year that Tom was his go-to guru for advice, telling ITV: ‘He gives me advice about anything whether it is relationships or whatever – I always ask Tom.’
The Real Husbands of Katie Price
In the decades since she first rose to fame, Katie Price has enjoyed – and quite likely endured – a decidedly busy love life that has seen her walk down the aisle three times before heading to divorce court in equal measure. Here’s a look at the trio with whom she exchanged ‘I dos’… and ‘I don’ts’:
PETER ANDRE (2005 – 2009)
The nation got to watch love blossom between the pair when they starred alongside one another on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here back in 2004. The flying sparks soon became nuptials, with blushing bride Katie and her erstwhile pop hunk beau tying the knot at Highclere Castle (the grand Berkshire estate of Downton Abbey fame) in September 2005. Katie, who was already mother to son Harvey (born in 2002 following a romance with former footballer Dwight Yorke), soon started a family with her new husband. The couple welcomed son Junior in 2005, while daughter Princess followed in 2007. Creation between the pair also came artistically, with the release of reality programmes, a failed talk show and a foray into the music world. However, after four years of securing their position as the Ken and Barbie of reality TV and glossy magazine deals, the pair announced in 2009 that they were going their separate ways.
ALEX REID (2010 – 2012)
Katie soon switched her romantic allegiance from a onetime ab-bearing pop heartthrob to musclebound MMA fighter Alex Reid. The two met at Michelle Heaton’s 30th birthday party at London’s Cafe de Paris. But shortly after they got together, Katie dumped Alex on live TV, only for him to win her back and the pair go from strength to strength. Weeks after proudly cheering her man on to a win on the 2010 edition of Celebrity Big Brother (also featuring none other than her ex-boyfriend Dane Bowers), Katie jetted off to Las Vegas to tie the knot with her new partner in February 2010 after just seven months of dating – and nine months after divorcing Peter. Following their Sin City sojourn, the pair returned to their native UK, where they had a formal ceremony – which was filmed for a TV series. However, after just 11 months of marriage, the pair announced they were splitting and their divorce was finalised in March 2012. While Katie declared at the time that she married Alex ‘too soon’, she would later go on to reveal that a major factor in their split was his cross-dressing alter-ego Roxanne.
KIERAN HAYLER (2013 – 2021)
Showing herself to be a true woman of the times, Katie embarked on a romance with former stripper Kieran after the two met on the now-defunct Blackberry Messenger service in 2012. And just two months after altering the paths of their lives via those thumb-tapped fateful opening messages, the twosome would go on to exchange nuptials in the Caribbean. Kieran proposed to a thrilled Katie on Christmas Day 2012, and just three weeks later, the pair would be pronounced husband and wife in the idyllic shores of the Bahamas on January 16, 2013. They had their marriage blessed in Weston-super Mare, and in the months that followed, it appeared that Katie had finally found her happily ever after. They welcomed son Jett in August 2013, and daughter Bunny in August 2014. But Katie’s world came crashing down in 2014, when she discovered that Kieran had cheated on her with her close friend of 20 years, Jane Pountney, and was enjoying a fling with another of her pals, Chrissy Thomas. After publicly lashing out at all parties involved (and naming her pet pigs after her friends-turned-foes), Katie appeared determined to make things work when she renewed her vows with Kieran in 2015. But alas, it would not turn out to be third time lucky for Katie, as the pair split in 2018 amid even more cheating allegations. Their ‘amicable’ divorce was finalised in early 2021.
