We really feel for Chantelle. In an interview last week she said that Alex had 'royally mucked up' and needed to change the way he treated her if the relationship was to survive.

Just a few days later and Alex Reid was arrested after he tried to break into their home.

We just hope Chantelle is spending time with her family, friends and Dolly and is feeling better soon.
