Chantelle Admits Her Marriage Was A Sham
Celebrity Big Brother 4 Winner Chantelle Houghton has effectively
admitted that her 10-month marriage to Preston was fake.
The couple met when Chantelle entered the House as a fake
Celebrity, at the time an ordinary member of the public herself,
just like most BB housemates.
Romance quickly blossomed and the couple got married after
Preston, real name Samuel Preston, fell for the dippy glamour
girl enough to ditch his girlfriend Camille.
At their wedding in August 2006, the couple exchanged vows
in front of 45 guests and Chantelle walked down the aisle
to the sound of The Ramones 'Baby I Love You'. However, that
turned-out to be a little inaccurate, as Chantelle has all-but
admitted that they tied the knot for the money they could
make from magazine deals.
That said, we think the couple initially got swept-up in
the romance of it all, but Chantelle recently said, "I
think we only went out (with each other) because of what was
going on around us at the time. So, was it a lie? I just cant
help but think that it was".
The couple got divorced earlier this year supposedly due
to Preston's infidelity, and the Ordinary Boys frontman subsequently
got back together with his old flame Camille Aznar.
And she is obviously a very forgiving woman, because Preston
famously flirted with Chantelle whilst in the House and snubbed
his girlfriend at the series Finale, receiving daggers from
his humiliated beau as she stood in the crowd.
A source close to the couple said, "Camille found it
hard to forgive Preston for the pain he caused her when they
split, but they've never lost touch and although it drives
Camille mad to admit it, she's always held a torch for her
So, it seems that the Chantelle/ Preston relationship was
a bit of a sham and served only to make the pair a shed-load
of money in the end.
