Newly single Chantelle Houghton looked down while out in Essex

Chantelle Houghton looked glum as she stepped out for the first time since she split from Rav Wilding.

The Big Brother star was dumped by the Crimewatch presenter after they were snapped rowing at a London park over the weekend.

The break-up appears to have got to Chantelle, 27 – she was pictured looking down as she headed out in Essex on Tuesday.

And things went from bad to worse for her when she later picked up a parking ticket.

Chantelle has kept a low profile since the split, only Tweeting: ‘Had an awful week thanks for all ur support x.’

Meanwhile, Rav, 33, has reportedly jetted out on holiday to get over his heartbreak.

Rav‘s devastated at the end of the relationship and is having a few days away to try to clear his head and process it all,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘He feels like the time alone will be great for him to get over the initial upset and let the dust settle before he gets busy with filming.’
