Chantelle Houghton has spoken out about what she thought was a revived romance with her ex-husband Preston, saying that until he published a blog post making it clear that they were just friends she was convinced that there was a chance of them getting back together.

We reported a while back that the whole thing had been completely staged managed by Chantelle from the start, with the pair making a deal to go into the Ultimate Big Brother House hoping to make as much money as they could from the resulting coverage. However she has revealed to Heat that she was ‘devastated’ when Preston revealed that they were just friends without telling her first, which certainly puts paid to all those rumours. Ahem.

‘When I left the house, all I wanted was closure,’ she said. ‘But when Preston saw how I was feeling in the house, it opened it up again and gave me hope we could get back together.

‘He told me that he was in love with me and he still really fancied me, and I obviously got really upset. I'd text and say, ‘I can't wait to see you,’ and he'd say, ‘Can't wait to see you too.’ He also sent texts saying he loved me, which I have.

‘I sobbed my heart out when I saw Preston's statement. I couldn't believe that he'd put that on there without telling me. I honestly thought that there was hope for us.

‘I texted him, saying, 'I've just read your blog and I'm absolutely devastated,' and he was like, 'Oh no, sorry. Do you want me to take it down?' I was so upset. I just wanted him to be there for me. It's like now that the s**t's hit the fan, he's gone off.’
