'Celebrity First Dates': Preston Looks For Love On The Channel 4 Dating Show

There go our hopes for a Chantelle reunion.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemate and Ordinary Boys frontman Preston, but that’s all about to change as he makes an appearance on one of our favourite shows tonight (15 July).

He will be looking for love on ‘Celebrity First Dates’, thwarting any last remaining hopes we were holding onto for a reunion with ex-wife and fellow ‘CBB’ star, Chantelle Houghton.

However, his date on the Channel 4 dating series is not without its awkward moments.

Preston is forced to explain to his prospective squeeze who he is when she draws a blank.

“I was on ‘Big Brother’ ten years ago… It was ‘Celebrity Big Brother’... because of my band The Ordinary Boys,” he explained, with his date looking none the wiser.

Fortunately, it seems he saw the funny side of the encounter, if this tweet is anything to go by:

Preston appeared on the fourth series of ‘CBB’ in 2004, where he found love with fellow contestant Chantelle.

The pair went on to marry just a few months later, but their marriage lasted just over a year.

They were then locked up the in ‘BB’ house once again during ‘Ultimate Big Brother’ in 2010, when fans speculated they could reunite.

However, she went on to have an ill-fated relationship with Alex Reid, who she shares four-year-old daughter Dolly with.

‘Celebrity First Dates’ airs tonight at 9pm on Channel 4.
