Star only went on two dates with Tony Richardson

Chantelle Houghton has set the record straight about her connection with Jennifer Ellison’s former fiancé.

The Celebrity Big Brother contestant went out for dinner with the actress’s ex, Tony Richardson, in February.

But she says there was no romance.

‘We did go on a couple of dates but it wasn’t anything major,’ she says.

‘He’s still a friend but it was never going to lead to anything more.

‘He’s come out of a long-term relationship and I couldn’t see him as boyfriend material.

‘I did fancy him but we were more mates than anything else.’

Chantelle, 24, divorced The Ordinary Boys frontman Samuel Preston, 26, earlier this year.

They split after 10 months together.
