But things didn’t work out between the two and they broke up.

“It was friendly and we’re still very friendly. At the start of the year, I moved, ”said Chantelle. OKAY!.

“With the lockdown, I think a lot of people probably started relationships and we moved in together really quickly… I think it put a lot of pressure on things and fizzled out.”

But the mother-of-one promises she’s fine after the shocking breakup.

“So it’s been a while now and I’m in a very good positive position,” Chantelle revealed.

Fortunately, the couple hadn’t gone too far in planning their wedding due to Covid restrictions, which meant she hadn’t even started shopping for dresses.

Chantelle had, who had been engaged twice before, got engaged to Michael just months after meeting him, but doesn’t regret moving quickly with him.

“I don’t regret anything, I had a great time with Michael. Sometimes things just don’t work out and you can’t stay in an unhappy relationship,” she said.

“I think sometimes you just have to come to terms with it if it’s okay with you. We haven’t been alive for long, so it would be sad to push someone away just because of failed relationships in the past. “

But the experience did not prevent her from finding love again.

“When I love, I love it hard. If I meet someone, I meet someone, but if I don’t, I don’t,” explained Chantelle.

“But now, if there’s a red flag, I’m running. I know what I want and I won’t settle for anything less – but I still believe in love.

Along with a breakup, Chantelle also put on three stones during the lockdown and she is now “the heaviest I have ever been”.

The TV star has set her sights on a healthy diet as she describes the impact her weight gain has had on her confidence.

“We started eating a lot of take out because it wasn’t always easy to go to the supermarket – and being at home I was a lot less active,” Chantelle revealed.

“So I started working with MuscleFood on a healthy diet, which is a positive thing to focus on. “

She started to wear loose clothes and even stopped going to big social events.

“The weight mostly went on my stomach, so many people were congratulating me on being pregnant,” Chantelle said.

Now the star enjoys working out while swimming, using the elliptical trainer and the stepper.

Another unexpected turn her life took during the Covid pandemic was when she accepted a freelance consultant position for The body store.

Chantelle, who took a step back after having had her daughter eight years ago, joins The Body Shop in September of last year.

She rose through the ranks to the position of Area Manager in four weeks and sold her products on social media.

The Body Shop at Home is a tiered marketing platform, with home sellers earning up to 30% commission.

But now she has given up on that job as the world has started to open up again.

“The Body Shop products are always amazing and I would recommend them to anyone, but when I started as a consultant it was only because I was so bored in the lockdown,” explained Chantelle.

“Everyone of the celebrities had quit and there wasn’t a lot of work going on, so it was a good way to stay mentally active. Now that things have picked up, I don’t work with them anymore.

Chantelle rose to fame for being a normal girl pushed into Celebrity Big Brother at the age of 22, as part of a fictional girl group called Kandy Floss.

She won CBB’s January 2006 series and pocketed a boyfriend, The leader of the Ordinary Boys, Samuel Preston, In the process.

The couple got engaged in April, married in August, and parted ways the following June – with Chantelle then a full-fledged celebrity.

She has a daughter Dolly with former CBB winning colleague Alex Reid.
