Chantelle Houghton, Celebrity Big Brother star, has spoken out about her current relationship with Preston. She admitted that they are still in regular contact.
They met while competing on CBB in 2006. They were married soon after the show ended. However, they parted just over a decade later.
Chantelle, almost 15 years later, confirmed that Preston and she "will always be friends" when she was asked if the pair are still in touch.
She said, "We text every couple of months or something similar. We will always be friends. We have so many special memories and we share inside jokes that no one else could understand. It's great that we have kept what we had."
The 38-year-old also said that she would love to marry again during the interview.
She admitted that she would love to marry. I'm sure I have been married before. Preston and I were married for a very real reason. He was the best man I could ever imagine and I wanted to marry him."
Chantelle said, "I don’t see it as a failed marriage because i was 21 and we were living in a crazy universe back then."
"I don’t view it as a real life marriage, even though it was. It's something I would love to do again.
Chantelle was supposed to marry Michael Strutt but they called it off last January.
Chantelle has lost 2 stone since then which has helped her feel more confident in dating. She insists that she is happy being single.
She told new, "I don't fear to be alone,"
Chantelle said, "I know that there are many people out there who would like to be with someone just for the sake of being alone, but I can be by myself."
It might sound corny, but it's true. I would rather be by myself for five years, then find someone to be happy with the rest of my lives, than be with someone who isn't right and making me miserable."
