During a frank chat in the garden today, Chantelle told oldest
housemate Vanessa Feltz why her marriage to Preston failed.
While chatting to the former chat show host, Chantelle was
asked if she was okay with the situation now, having been
put back into the House with Preston after several years apart.
"I just have up-and-down days," admitted the 27-year-old
glamour girl, before adding: "It’s so bizarre to
have had three years apart and then spend so much time with
Vanessa told her younger peer that she has handled the situation
amazingly well, but Chantelle then effectively claimed that
her UBB stay has been odd because she now feels like she's
stuck in-between her old life and her life post-Preston.
When Vanessa noted that the pair haven't argued since they
entered the Big Brother House, Chantelle told her that they
didn't really argue when they were living together.
"So what was it?" asked Vanessa. "Obviously
I’d been on Big Brother and then I didn’t even
go back to my Mum's, I moved to Brighton," replied Chantelle,
adding: "My friends weren’t there, my family wasn’t
there, I was in a strange place. Preston was away working
and it was just that I felt so lonely".
Chantelle – who still carries a torch for the former
Ordinary Boys frontman – also noted that Preston didn't
want to leave her on her own at home, and said she felt bad
about it because she didn't want to stop him seeing his friends.
"It was circumstances," said the Essex girl, reflecting
on the marital breakdown.
