Former reality TV contestant expecting first baby with footballer beau
Renowned for her hissy fits on Big Brother and her turbulent personal life, it seems that 22-year-old Chanelle Hayes is ready to put it all behind her with a New Year baby.
After appearing on BB8 in 2007, the blonde Victoria Beckham ‘lookalike’ became famous for her glamour girl lifestyle, being papped in celeb haunts and trying her hand at being a pop star.
Despite bagging herself a footballer boyfriend, Middlesbrough player Matthew Bates, 23, and living the WAG lifestyle, Chanelle hit the headlines again after she was hospitalised for attempting suicide with an overdose. “I thought: ‘I can’t make Matt happy, I can’t do anything right, so it’d be much easier for everyone if I’m not here,’” she said previously of the incident.
However, the couple have seemed to put the dark days behind them and are now proud parents-to-be. “Chanelle is absolutely thrilled and Matthew is over the moon too,” a source told The Sun.
