Chantelle's comments came as it was
reported she had been telling friends that she's not sure whether her
relationship with Alex will last.
A source told Now magazine:
'Chantelle has been telling friends, “I'll walk out if things don't get
better. I want it to work for Dolly's sake, but I won't stay if I'm this
'”I might have rushed into it, I don't want to marry if I'll be unhappy. I'd rather be a single mum”.'
Having her say: The mother-of-one also spoke out against her ex-boyfriend Rav Wilding for retweeting something offensive about her
new! magazine is out now
Today Chantelle hit out at her ex-boyfriend Rav Wilding on Twitter after she accused him of retweeting an offensive comment about her.
She wrote: 'At a time when twitter bullying is at an
all time high it's a shame that rav being an expoliceman and someone
ppl look up to should retweet.'
Shortly after she then uploaded another post that read: 'Retweetin such tweets. I don't mind what he calls me but he shouldn't do it publicly cos young children will see it and think its acceptable.'
The so called tweet that the blonde referred to doesn't appear to on Wilding's account anymore, although it's not clear if he did indeed retweet anything.
