CBB’s Chantelle Houghton ‘still loves’ and has ‘chemistry’ with ex-hubby Preston

Chantelle Houghton has opened up about her relationship with her Celebrity Big Brother co-star and ex-husband Preston.

The pair had the nation hooked back in 2006 when they both entered the CBB house and fell for one another on the TV series.

During a Facebook Live chat with Daily Star, Chantelle exclusively revealed that she still has "chemistry" with her ex-husband despite being split since 2007.

The couple got married the same year they met on the show, however went separate ways and divorced just 10 months later.

When the stunning star was asked whether a romantic reunion could ever be on the cards again, Chantelle, 38, revealed a surprising answer.

She said: "Do you know what, I did a photoshoot with Preston a couple of years ago and I hadn't seen him for 10 years and there was still that chemistry between us. There was still something there, and I think there always will be.

"But we've grown and gone our separate ways, and sadly there will be no reconciliation and no second wedding. But I still love him, I've got so much love for him and I always will have."

When questioned on what caused the celebrity couple's divorce, she explained that they were "just kids" and it felt more like a "holiday romance".

She explained: "The only thing I can liken it to is like a holiday romance, you're in the big bubble and it's all fun, fun, fun. Me and Preston, we wouldn't have ever looked twice at each other or come across each other if it wasn't for the show.

"So, we fell in love with each other but when you're taken out of the situation, I moved to Brighton and moved away from my friends and family and you end up realising that it was a huge whirlwind of falling in love.

"It's like the honeymoon period, you cant keep hold of the lustful feeling forever and we realised we were so different."

Chantelle concluded: "We were like two little kids and he took me to Gordon Ramsay restaurant once in Claridge's and we were like 'what are we doing here? We aren't old enough!'

"But I'm so grateful for all the memories."
