Following a much-publicized on-screen courtship, Houghton married former fellow Big Brother contestant Samuel Preston of The Ordinary Boys in August 2006. Chantelle was granted a quickie divorce from her musician husband on the grounds of his ‘unreasonable behavior’, according to court documents of the divorce.
They broke up only 10 months after they married, with critics claiming the whirlwind romance was merely a publicity stunt, with the previously unknown Chantelle becoming a household name overnight.

Chantelle Houghton Big Brother
She had originally applied to be in Big Brother 6 and was a standby for that series but was never called up, however, producers decided to use her for the upcoming celebrity version as a “Fake Celebrity”. Houghton entered the house on day one and became the first non-celebrity to enter Celebrity Big Brother. She was told by Big Brother that her cover story was that she was a member of a fictional band called Kandy Floss.
According to Big Brother, Houghton was the lead singer. Their singles were “I Want It Right Now”, “Come Back”, and “More More More”. “I Want It Right Now” was their biggest hit. Had she failed to convince them, she would have been evicted from the house. She successfully fooled her housemates and survived to the end of the show.
In her Big Brother profile page, Houghton described herself as a “bright, blonde bimbo” (despite not being a natural blonde). She said, “I look like Paris Hilton, not on purpose but it’s just the way it turned out”. On 8 January (day four), Big Brother set a task to the group to rate themselves by how famous they thought they were.
The celebrity they thought was the most famous stood on the No. 1 podium and the person they considered the least famous stood on the No. 11 podium. Houghton had to avoid being put in the No. 11 podiums to prove she had fooled the real celebrities that she was famous and to stay in the house.
Houghton survived the task, being chosen to stand on the No. 9 podium, ahead of Samuel Preston and Maggot. She was then called to the diary room to discuss her identity with Big Brother. This was simultaneously shown on a television screen in the lounge, in front of the other housemates.
Houghton was nominated for eviction on Day 21 but was saved from eviction by the public as the other two nominees (George Galloway and Dennis Rodman) left the house in a double eviction. While in the house, Houghton established close bonds with Jodie Marsh and Preston.
