Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Josie Gibson on This Morning on 4 October, the 40-year-old claimed she still keeps in touch with the Ordinary Boys singer and even preserved her wedding gown from the day they married.

The couple met on the Channel 4 reality show in 2006, got engaged in April of that year, and said ‘I do’ four months later. However, the marriage ended in November 2007, with the former couple issuing a joint statement saying,

After much soul-searching and tearful discussions we have sadly decided to end our marriage. We hope we can always remain friends and still love each other but we both think we put so much pressure on one another to make our marriage work that it has ended up destroying our relationship. No one else is involved in our decision.

Following their divorce, the two appear to have remained on good terms, with Chantelle explaining on the ITV daytime show:

I love looking back and I do enjoy seeing clips and stuff, obviously for our children […] it is nice looking back and also the confidence that I had back then – do you know what I mean? It’s nice to look back.
