Alexandra Burke and Jermain Defoe only went public with their relationship recently / Rex"All I can say is that I really wouldn't be surprised if it's true, because he cheated on me too! I think that he's a nasty little rat and should concentrate on scoring on the pitch rather than off it!" she said.

Ooh, we like the football analogy there.

Chantelle continued to say that she regrets ever getting involved with Jermain and that Alexandra should ditch him immediately.

Chantelle Houghton is now engaged to Alex Reid and the pair are expecting a baby this spring / WENN"I hate the way he treats women," Chantelle said. "Anyway, how did he ever pull Alexandra Burke in the first place? I don't know her, but I would definitely encourage her to ditch him."

Last week, model Laura Brown claimed that she'd slept with Jermain despite him being with Alexandra.

She said: "I never planned on sleeping with him, it just happened."

Hmm, we think we're going to have to agree with Chantelle on this one. Move on, Alexandra.
