The Big Brother couple insist they're 100% in love
The cage fighter’s marriage to Jordan fell apart in January and he got together with Chantelle, 27, in May after they met at an awards ceremony.
‘I was very nervous when I first met Chantelle not to go straight in because my heart was still a bit broken back then,’ says Alex, 36.
‘But she’s mended it.
‘It feels like there’s no pressure – at first I was a bit stand-offish and I was like, “hold on” – I was scared of love after for better for worse.’
Chantelle and Alex deny that theirs is a faux romance to keep them both in the spotlight. They’ve bonded over their shared experiences in Celebrity Big Brother – and the heartache of a broken first marriage.
‘Love has many degrees and this feels real, this feels relaxed and I don’t want to compare anything to anybody else,’ Alex tells ITV1’s this Morning.
‘This feels right right now.’
