Chantelle found love with Ordinary Boys frontman Preston during her time on the show and admitted that she received almost £ 1million for their wedding interview.
Despite the exorbitant fees ahead, Chantelle told The Sun in April that she was still reasonable: “I was a millionaire, so I have a house without a mortgage.
“I was very wise with my money, I didn’t go out and spend it on designer handbags or shoes, I grew up with ushers knocking on the door, and I just didn’t want to live this life. “
