Big Brother housemates Chantelle Houghton and Preston cuddle up

Ultimate Big Brother housemate Chantelle Houghton snuggled up to her former husband Preston during a BB task.

Big Brother had provided the housemates with giant heads to wear – whoever kept theirs on the longest won two new housemates – Victor Ebuwa and Michelle Bass.

Essex girl Chantelle, 27, took the opportunity to get close to her ex-husband Preston – real name Samuel Preston – by resting her giant head on his lap.

Both Preston and Chantelle have confessed that they haven’t found ‘closure’ since their 10-month marriage ended in 2007 and they have struggled to remain apart in the Big Brother house.

‘Last night I went to put my arm round him,’ Chantelle confessed to Brian and Nadia in the nest.

The former Ordinary Boys frontman has also hinted that there may be a future for him and Chantelle.

In a conversation where Preston said he’d be willing to try online and speed dating, he suggested that his long-distance relationship with American Abby Rubin – who lives in Philadelphia – is not as solid as it once was.

‘She’s [Abby] moved away, hasn’t she?’ Preston confirmed.
