The reality star won series four of Celebrity Big Brother in 2006 after going in as a member of the public pretending to be a singer.
Four years later, Chantelle, 36, took part in Ultimate Big Brother. She said:
“AT first it was really exciting to be in Big Brother, facing the challenge of convincing all my famous housemates that I was a celebrity like them.
“But after nine days I hit a wall when we all had to individually get inside a cardboard box.
“I remember sitting in that box, tears running down the side of my face. It was the one moment that I felt alone, away from my friends and family.
“The reality hit that I couldn’t see them or call them. As the days went by I found it was 1pm and I still had my pyjamas on, which made me feel a bit grotty.
“I learned then it was really important to stick to a routine and to get up early, as normal.
“The other way I coped with my three weeks in the house was by imagining pictures of my family in my head.
“You need to focus on the positives of the experience, of which there can be some surprising ones.
“Everything happens for a reason. I met Preston (The Ordinary Boys singer) in there, never dreaming that I would meet someone and go on to get married to them.
“Even though we are now divorced, we are still really good friends and in touch all the time.
“In the final week I was desperate for the end, but it was such a great experience I did it a second time in 2010.
“Lockdown is something we can survive.”
And, don’t forget most important thing of them all. STAY HOME!
