Big Brother star had a termination at 18

Chanelle Hayes is looking forward to becoming a mum.

The Big Brother 8 star is expecting her first child with her ex, footballer Matt Bates, 23.

The pregnancy was unplanned but the glamour model says a termination was out of the question.

‘I had [an abortion] at 18 and it was the worst experience ever,’ says Chanelle, 22.

‘Now I’m more mature and financially stable, I’m better prepared to have a child.

‘It was never an option this time.’

But Chanelle admits she did not anticipate starting a family yet.

‘I was on the Pill!’ she adds.
