Top international dressage rider Spencer Wilton has been wrongly accused in the tabloids as the “mystery man” responsible for ending Katie Price’s marriage.

Former national dressage champion Spencer, 35, was photographed in a club in Bristol on Friday night with former glamour model Katie.

“We were just out having a perfectly innocent, fun night out,” Spencer told H&H. “A big group of us had all been at Badminton Horse Trials for the day and went out for dinner afterwards and then on to a club.”

Spencer, who lives in Gloucestershire, told us he informed the tabloids when pictures emerged yesterday that there had obviously been a huge misunderstanding.

“They know exactly who I am and have chosen to ignore that and the fact that I’m already in a happy relationship with a male partner,” said Spencer.

“My phone hasn’t stopped with papers and magazines calling, but it’s obviously a lot worse for Katie — I just really hope she and Peter are able to resolve their differences.”
