Chantelle Houghton Introduction
Chantelle Houghton was billed as the first 'non-celebrity' to compete on the UK reality TV show "Celebrity Big Brother" in 2006. As a twist to the show, she was instructed to convince the celebrity housemates that she was a member of a (fictional) girl group named Kandy Floss, whose biggest hit was said to be "I Want It Right Now". Had she failed to convince them, she would have been evicted from the house. She successfully fooled her housemates and survived to the end of the show.
Chantelle Houghton Career
Prior to appearing on Big Brother, Chantelle did some glamour modelling, when she appeared in The Daily Star as a page three girl in 2003. She also appeared as a Soccerette model on Sky TV's Soccer AM show.
Chantelle has appeared as a guest on several TV shows in the UK
Chantelle also presented her own dating show called "Chantelle's Dream Dates", where she gave girls on the street a makeover and got them to date one of three male contestants. She was nominated in the Most Popular TV Contender category at the 2006 National Television Awards, but was beaten by Nikki Grahame, herself a former Big Brother contestant.
In May 2006, she signed a £300,000 deal with Random House to publish her autobiography. It was released in October 2006 called Living the Dream which only sold 5,000 copies. Extracts from the book were read out by Simon Amstell on the 14 February 2007 edition of "Never Mind the Buzzcocks" which caused Preston, who was a guest on the show, to walk off the set.
Chantelle has written several columns in high profile magazines, most notably OK's BB7 columnist and NEW's BB8 columnist. Before becoming NEW's BB8 columnist she had another column in NEW magazine entitled "I Want It Right Now" in which she shared make up and fashion tips.
In 2008, she opened a clothing store in Great Yarmouth called Store Twenty One.
