Chantelle Houghton has revealed what exactly happened when her ex-fianc Alex Reid allegedly turned their home into a 'sex dungeon' for four days.
The mother-of-one, who called time on her relationship with Reid following the birth of their daughter Dolly, has spoken out in a candid interview about the events which she deemed 'horrific'.
Speaking to The Sun, the 29-year-old revealed how when she was eight months pregnant she arrived home to find Alex dressed as his alter-ego Roxanne.
The truth: Chantelle Houghton has opened up in a candid interview about the four days that her ex-fianc Alex Reid turned her house into a 'sex dungeon'
Retelling the daunting moment when she became aware of Alex's cross-dressing ways, Chantelle told the newspaper that the house was dark and as she made her way up the stairs she found Alex dressed as a woman with her lingerie scattered around the room.
She said: 'He had my false eyelashes on and there were sex toys all over the room, with porn playing on the TV.'
Following what she had witnessed, the former Celebrity Big Brother star moved out of the Brentwood home they shared and ended up staying in her old flat by herself.

Determined to make things work for the sake of their unborn child, Houghton revealed to the paper that despite all she has seen she kept going back to the house to plead with Reid.
She continued: 'I begged him to stop but he kept saying how horny he felt and asked me to perform a sex act on him.'
But again not wanting to start motherhood single, Chantelle forgave the 37-year-old, who was once married to Katie Price, after he promised to 'never do it again'.
Chantelle and Alex met in 2011 and enjoyed a whirlwind romance which led to a televised proposal, and soon after the blonde was delighted to find out she was with child.
Unfortunately things between the two failed to get any better and despite outward appearances, Houghton recalls just how distant he really was even when the time came for her to give birth.
She said: 'When I was in labour he was three doors down, texting me to see how it was going.'
It's been a tough week for the former couple after Chantelle made astonishing revelations about the reasons behind her split from Alex.
But it seems they are attempting to put their troubles behind them for the sake of their five-month-old daughter Dolly.
Cage fighter Reid had his parents in tow as he visited Chantelle's mother's Essex home where he spent time with his child on Wednesday.

While it's unclear if Alex and Chantelle were in the property at the
same time, the estranged couple may have required the calming influence
of their parents if they decided to talk following her explosive
allegations earlier this week.
Chantelle also took to her Twitter page to
post claims about Alex planning to sleep with another man while dressed as Roxanne, and accused him of cheating with another
woman while she was expecting.
In the tweets posted on Tuesday,
Chantelle wrote: 'Ok had enough, I'm putting the record straight. I've
been in f***ing bad place for weeks now but reason for that is this: I
found text messages on Alex's phone when she was 6 weeks old, it was to a
man and he was arranging to meet up with him as Roxanne for sex.
'It wasn't the first time either. So yeah I'm in hell right now but who wouldn't be.
and yes when I was 8 months pregnant Alex turned my house into a sex
dungeon and I slept on my flat floor for days…Cos I couldn't come

Chantelle continued by claiming that Alex had group sex with prostitutes during their relationship.
She wrote: 'And NO I didn't know Alex cross dressed cos he told me it was a publicity stunt, I found out when I was pregnant. not forgetting the hookers he was texting that he'd had orgies with.
'Forgive me if I look like s**t right now but I f***ing feel it – whole world was ripped apart in an Instant And I've texted the guy who he was arranging to meet and told him what I think of him too. F***ing sick dragging me into this. It's wrong.'
Feeling down: Chantelle admits she is finding life as a single mother tough
The mother-of-one, who admits she is struggling to get Alex to commit to visiting their daughter, seems to be making progress by meeting up with the new father and his parents.
But she admits she is finding it difficult to adjust to life as a single mother while coping with the fall-out of the split.
Speaking on The Saturday Night show, she said: 'I never appreciated what it was like to be a single mum before, and I'm in a very fortunate situation that I don't have money worries.
'But it's hard going through a break-up and being mum as well – it's really tough.'
