Something wrong? Katie Price shies away from boyfriend Leandro Penna as he tries to go in for a kiss while she films auditions for her new reality show Discovered By Katie Price
She's been more than a little vocal about her love for boyfriend Leandro Penna in recent months.
But at auditions for her new reality show Discovered By Katie Price today, the glamour model looked less than impressed as her Argentinian toyboy tried to give her a kiss between auditions.
Katie, 33, appeared to recoil as Leandro moved in for a passionate embrace while the mother-of-three sat on the panel for the programme with her fellow judges.
I don't want to ruin my make-up! Perhaps Katie was just worried about smudging her lip gloss in between auditions
Perhaps Katie didn't want to ruin her make-up as she continued her search for Britain's next top glamour model.
The images are in sharp contrast to Katie's previous public declarations of love for 25-year-old model Leandro.
The pair even sparked rumours they were engaged earlier this week when Katie was spotted wearing a giant diamond on her ring finger.
A bit bright for you? Leandro wore his sunglasses even inside as auditions continued at the Merry Hill Shopping Centre in Birmingham
Pretty in pink: Katie wore a bright pink outfit and teamed it with cascades of tumbling blonde curls
However Katie was quick to deny the reports, writing on her Twitter page: 'I'm NOT engaged if you look at old pics and new I ALWAYS wear rings on wedding finger and same on other hand and always will.'
Leandro has been with Katie every step of the way as she searches for the hottest young models around the UK.
Hopefuls at today's auditions at Merry Hill Shopping Centre in Birmingham included one young woman who took to the stage wearing little more than a tiny patterned string bikini.

Talking about the show, Katie said: ‘This is a really personal mission for me. I know I’m a good businesswoman and if I find the right boy of girl, I would like to sign them to my new agency.’
