Chanelle Hayes ‘over the moon’ at shock engagement: ‘She’s been dreaming of this’

Big Brother star Chanelle Hayes is overwhelmed with joy as OK! can reveal that she is now engaged to her boyfriend Dan Bingham.

Chanelle is said to be “over the moon” after her boyfriend popped the question, with her pal telling OK!: “She’s been dreaming of this for such a long time.”

Chanelle’s partner Dan Bingham asked her to marry him in April and the delighted former Big Brother star “said yes straight away”.

“Chanelle has really been through it when it comes to relationships and this time it really feels like she’s found The One,” her friend told us.

“She’s already looking into wedding plans and can’t wait to finally get married – she’s been dreaming of this for such a long time.”

Chanelle, 34, first began dating accountant Dan in January last year, but has kept their relationship relatively private, explaining he has no interest in fame.

She has never publicly revealed his name and often conceals his identity on her social media.

Their romance came following her split from PE teacher Ryan Oates, the father of her four-year-old son Frankie, in 2019.

Chanelle is also mum to Blakely, 11, from her relationship with former footballer Matthew Bates.

During an Instagram Q&A last October, Chanelle, who found fame on Big Brother in 2007, revealed her hopes for marriage.

When a fan asked, “Do you think you’ll get married?” she responded, “Yes” alongside a love heart.

Two months later, Chanelle told followers she was secretly hoping for a festive proposal, saying: “It’s Christmas and I have been really good so we’ll see what happens.”

But although she’s set to walk down the aisle, Chanelle – who lost about 8st after having gastric sleeve surgery in August 2020 – is adamant she doesn’t want any more children.

She revealed: “Absolutely, categorically, 125% no!”

She added: “These legs are closed for business.

"I have done my bit for the human race. I can’t think of anything I would rather do less.”
