Alex Reid has slammed rumours that he and fiancée Chantelle Houghton have split up, by releasing a statement confirming that they are “still very much together”.
Rumours have circulated for weeks that the relationship is under strain, particularly after Chantelle gave a revealing interview to OK! magazine, admitting there has been a “lot of pressure” on them lately.
Then this weekend stories appeared in one Sunday tabloid, claiming former Celebrity Big Brother star Chantelle had walked out on cage fighter Alex after a “catastrophic” argument.
But Alex has officially denied the reports, releasing a statement on his website, with the headline "Alex and Chantelle - happy and together!" - insisting all is fine between them.
It read: "Alex Reid and Chantelle Houghton are still very much together and very much in love. Reports in the papers that they have split are untrue.
"Alex and Chantelle are looking forward to the birth of their little girl in June."
The couple got together last year and quickly got engaged in October, after Alex popped the question on The Saturday Night Show in Ireland.
One month later Alex and Chantelle announced the happy news that they were expecting their first child together. The baby was a true blessing for the couple, as Chantelle had previously been advised that she faced fertility problems, after suffering from an eating disorder.
