Chantelle Houghton and Preston are set to get their own reality TV show.
The pair – whose divorce was finalised in 2007 but grew close again as they appeared in ‘Ultimate Big Brother’ together, prompting speculation they are to rekindle their romance – are in talks with numerous channels to have their own programme as producers think they could be the next Katie Price and Peter Andre.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: “Forget Katie, forget Peter and forget Alex. Chantelle and Preston are the biggest reality stars on the block right now.
“They are the ones everyone is talking about. Kate thinks she’s a massive star, but people want someone they can actually relate to. And that’s Chantelle. She’s going to be huge.”
ITV2 are said to be the favourites to land the pair as they are desperate to replace Katie – who is now married to cage-fighter Alex Reid – after she signed a £10m (€12m) deal with Living.
Although Chantelle and Preston – who wed in 2006 after meeting on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ in the same year – are yet to officially get back together, it seems the 27-year-old blonde is keen for a reconciliation.
She said: “I didn’t know that I wanted him back until very recently. Preston is the love of my life, absolutely. He always will be if I’m honest, whatever happens now.”
