Chantelle told new!: "After the worst three weeks ever, things are a lot better between Alex and me. Any suggestions in the press that I know my relationship with Alex is over are completely untrue.

"For a time, my mind was focused on all the other stuff, and I feel sad that I'll never get that time back. I'm literally about to have the baby and I have to concentrate on that."

Chantelle Houghton also revealed her little girl has been pushing her legs against her mama's hip bone, causing the mum-to-be a lot of pain.

The Celebrity Big Brother winner admitted that she's "petrified" about the birth and doesn't feel "mentally prepared" but is taking comfort from the fact that her mum gave birth to her in an hour.

That sounds rather optimistic.

Let's hope it all goes well and Chantelle and Alex continue to get better.
