Good. Lord.

However, we pretty much could have told you that based on the great detail that his ex Chantelle Houghton has reveled in the past.

But quite honestly, is there anything that these two won't tell to a magazine?

Well, Alex did warn us in the past that he was 'addicted' to fame.

Speaking to Now! magazine, Alex says that Chantelle was fully aware of his er, experimental past when they got together.

Alex says: "Chantelle knew everything before we got together. Was she the only person in this country who didn't know I was a cross-dresser?"

"In my opinion she knew all about me, so what she's been saying makes no sense to me. In my younger years I did experiment with men."

Alex also admits to paying women for sex, saying:

"I've slept with prostitutes but that was a long time ago. A lot of men have done that. I've had a varied, fun past. I enjoyed a lot of different things."

Alex claims that despite knowing all this information Chantelle still wanted to marry him.

Meanwhile, Chantelle still insists that she had no idea about any of this and thought Roxanne was just a publicity stunt.

We say, although it might be old fashioned: perhaps it's time to have a quiet chat indoors minus any magazines or cameras.
