Newly single Chantelle Houghton looked sad as she opened store
Chantelle Houghton should’ve been excited about the opening of her new clothing boutique in Essex last night, but instead the newly single star was unable to crack a smile for photographers.
The Big Brother contestant – who split from Crimewatch presenter Rav Wilding over the weekend – arrived at the launch party for Vardo Boutique By Chantelle in a horse-drawn carriage and wore a plunging black gown.
But Chantelle, 27, looked glum and appeared to be preoccupied as she comes to terms with the break-up, which was sparked by a row between the pair in a London park on Saturday.

‘Sadly Chantelle & I are no longer in a relationship as I’ve had to draw a line under it,’ the 33-year-old Tweeted.
‘The relationship wasn’t what I wanted so badly and wasn’t the genuine thing I thought it was.
