At the time, she wrote: ‘Over the moon to announce me and Lee are having a baby could not be more happier. Can’t wait for my little happy family.’

The reality star has been keen to keep her boyfriend out of the spotlight and little is known about him, but The Sun previously revealed he’s a convicted drug dealer.

A source told the newspaper: ‘She’s been trying to keep his identity out of the limelight because he’s actually a convicted drug dealer – he was sentenced to seven years in jail in 2012 but got out early.’

Chantelle quit the MTV show after just one series when she fell out with Gaz Beadle and Chloe Ferry.

‘I left the show because I couldn’t stand living with two-faced people any longer,’ she told MTV at the time.

‘I find the house very snakey. I feel like I was the only one in the house that was real. If I had something to say to someone, I’d be the first to say it to their face.

‘Everyone else in that house seemed to have a problem doing that. It was all Chinese whispers instead of approaching us.’
