Chantelle Houghton wants Christmas wedding

Former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ winner Chantelle Houghton has revealed that she wants to get married to cage-fighter Alex Reid this winter, following his live television proposal on ‘The Saturday Night Show’.

The pair look set to hunt for event spaces for their nuptials in the next few months – even though Reid is still married to glamour model Katie Price, reported Mail Online.

In terms of the look of the wedding, Houghton said she hopes it has a “fantastic winter wonderland” feel to it; although the first step will be for Reid to buy a ring for his bride-to-be, as he did not have one on him when he got down on one knee.

The martial arts expert was prompted to propose to his girlfriend on live television after repeated requests from chat show host Brendan O’Connor, ultimately saying: “We’re in Dublin. I haven’t got a ring, but you know what, I’m going to do it. Seriously, nobody tell anyone! Will you marry me?”

RTE noted that this would not be the first famous face that Houghton will have tied the knot with, since she was married to Samuel Preston from the Ordinary Boys for a year following her ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ win.

The entertainment news website also noted that O’Connor looked genuinely surprised when Reid agreed to propose on the Irish chat show.
