Chantelle Houghton's love rival is the other side of the Atlantic

Ultimate Big Brother‘s Chantelle Houghton still has strong feelings for Preston, but believes his heart belongs to another.

Her ex-husband’s girlfriend’s name is tattooed on Preston‘s ankle but he has admitted that she’s currently ‘abroad’. That’s because student Abby Rubin has returned to Philadephia.

Preston, 28, met the 27-year-old in 2007 while taking a break
in her home city to escape the fall-out from his divorce to Chantelle.

He and Abby have been involved ever since the ‘colossal failure’ of the marriage.

‘For the last two and a half years I have been the willing victim of a long distance relationship,’ he says on his blog.

‘I learned a lot about life and love. Essentially don’t fall in love when you are full of alcohol/ Prozac/ sleeping pills/ the hollow praise of fickle glossy magazines.’

Preston and Abby have enjoyed several romantic trips to Mexico, France and New York, and lived together in Brighton until after ‘checking her visa’, the young American returned home.

Preston has told his fellow Ultimate Big Brother contestants that Abby is missing out on his adventures in the house – neither the live-stream nor the show’s highlights are broadcast outside of the UK.

But she’ll have no trouble following the developments in his relationship with Chantelle on the web…
