Alex Reid has claimed that he found it hard to find acting work during his marriage to Katie Price.
Reid has said that Price held him back in his career during their 18-month relationship.
The cage-fighter studied at the Guildford School of Acting in the 90s and has been trying to get a break in the industry since.
Alex told The Times magazine: "I'm rebranding myself after my association with Katie Price.
"I feel a bit of a chip on my shoulder to prove my acting ability."
Before his marriage to Katie, Alex had cameo roles in Hollyoaks and My Hero.
The former Celebrity Big Brother star is currently touring the UK with striptease comedy WildBoyz.
He said: "My association with a certain somebody closed so many doors.
"Now I'm being dissociated from her and rebranded, this is the perfect opportunity to get back into the acting thing."
