Chantelle Houghton wants Alex Reid to propose to her again, after his first proposal live on RTÉ's The Saturday Night Show hosted by Brendan O' Connor.

Chantelle now wants cage fighter Alex to pop the question again in a more intimate setting and to give her a ring to seal their union.

She said: “He had hinted in interviews he was thinking about popping the question, but I think he felt the moment was right and he just did it. But I still want him to ask me again in private and give me a ring. He hasn’t given me one yet.

“I want to be surprised. And I want him to do it in private, behind closed doors.”

While Chantelle admits she expected a proposal to be a “long way off” as Alex – who she has been dating for seven months – has not yet finalised his divorce form Katie Price, she is hoping to plan her nuptials to take place at the end of this year.

She told Britain’s OK! Magazine: “Alex is still married to Katie, so once that’s finalised we can start thinking about it. I’m thinking about this Christmas, a fantastic winter wonderland.”
