Chantelle Houghton's love rival is reported to have given him the boot

Ultimate Big Brother‘s Chantelle Houghton doesn’t think she stands a chance with ex-husband Preston because he has a girlfriend.

But Preston is reported to have been dumped by his American Abby Rubin because the musician is getting so cosy with Chantelle again.

Abby feels cheated,’ a pal tells The Daily Star Sunday. ‘She was never a fan of him revisiting his time in Big Brother, especially with Chantelle, 27, as part of the equation.

‘It’s difficult enough being with someone when they are over the other side of the world, let alone when they are flirting with their ex-wife on television in front of an audience of millions.’

Preston, 28, has Abby‘s name tattooed on his ankle but he’s hinted that they are not as close now as they once were.

Student Abby, 27, lives in Philadephia and they met when Preston fled to the US following the the very public breakdown of his marriage.

‘For the last two and a half years I have been the willing victim of a long distance relationship,’ Preston 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.’
