Chantelle later took to Instagram to reassure her followers she is healthy and has in fact just cut something out of her diet.

She explained: “Lots of people have been asking me if I am OK, which is really sweet, saying I look slim.

“I am completely sugar free and in a really, really good place, so thanks for caring, thanks for asking.”

The star added: “But I am really good, I am really healthy and I am absolutely loving life and am just so so grateful.”

Chantelle was famously sent into Celebrity Big Brother in 2006 to trick her famous housemates into thinking she too was a star.

She ended up falling for The Ordinary Boy’s star Preston, who she went on to marry.

After finding fame, she struggled with her weight, and she became known as a yo-yo dieter.

She told The Sun: “I wasn’t eating, or only eating when I was starving. And then, when I was starving, I was eating anything I could get my hands on. I’d stop at McDonald’s or get a bag of crisps or a bag of chips.”
