Chantelle tells all in Brendan expose

REALITY star Chantelle Houghton (29) is jetting into Dublin this weekend to talk about her heartbreak following her split from cage fighter Alex Reid, the Diary can reveal.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star will be appearing on Brendan O'Connor's Saturday Night Show to speak for the first time on TV about their stormy relationship.

It will be a poignant appearance for the bubbly blonde, given that the last time she was on the programme, Alex proposed to her live on the show.

She found out shortly after that she was pregnant with their little girl Dolly -- but the pair have been plagued with problems ever since.

In what's been hailed as a coup for the RTE show, she'll be revealing what went wrong between her and Katie Price's ex-husband.

And she'll be talking about life as a single mum now that he has moved out of their house after the couple decided to go their separate ways.

"It's been a really tough time for Chantelle, she just wasn't expecting this at all," said a source.

"Things have been made even worse by Alex making all kind of public statements about their relationship. The whole thing has been lived out in the glare of the media."
