Celebrity Big Brother star lied about being happy

Chantelle Houghton claims her ten month marriage to Preston was a sham.

The Celebrity Big Brother winner insists the Ordinary Boys frontman, 25, didn’t really want to get hitched.

‘A month after we were married Preston told me: “I knew I didn’t want to marry you on our wedding day”,’ she tells BBC show The Dark Side Of Fame.

‘It was weird on the day. He was pulling silly faces when we took our vows. He took the pee. I tried to keep a straight face but I thought he was being weird.

‘I thought: “You shouldn’t be doing this… you should be looking into each others’ eyes on your wedding day”. I wondered what was going on. But I just went along with it.

‘After he told me that he never wanted to marry me, we did interviews where we told everyone how happy we were. I lied about being happy.’

Chantelle, 25, and Preston, real name Samuel Preston, divorced in January.

The Dark Side Of Fame airs on Monday 27 October on BBC1 at 10.35pm.
