Preston and Chantelle split up

The Ordinary Boys singer ends his marriage to Celebrity Big Brother star

Preston and Chantelle split up
The Ordinary Boys singer Preston and his wife Chantelle have split up.

The pair, who met on last year's Celebrity Big Brother, have decided to go their separate after 10 months of marriage.

In a joint statement the couple said: "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."

The couple met on Celebrity Big Brother in January 2006 before they married eight months later.

The statement, which was issued to The Sun, added: "We know people will think we married too quickly on the back of Big Brother, but the truth is that, despite what anyone thinks, we did have a whirlwind romance, but we were genuinely in love with each other at the time and we will never regret our time together.

Earlier this year, Preston famously stormed off an episode of BBC 2 pop quiz 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks' after presenter Simon Amstell read extracts from her autobiography.
