Alex Reid took ''almost everything'' from the house he shared with Chantelle Houghton.

The reality TV star has moved into a new home with five-month-old daughter Dolly following her split from the cage fighter and says she had a lot of shopping to do because her former fiance even took basic items from their old property in Brentwood, Essex, South East England.

Writing in her new! magazine, she said: ''I've settled in really well to my new house. I love it - it's so homely and has such a nice vibe.

''I went furniture shopping last week with my brother Gregg because Alex took almost everything from the old house - even the washing-up liquid! I didn't manage to get a sofa because everything has such a long delivery time. I'm going to have to find somewhere that does express delivery.''

Chantelle has been ill recently and had to turn to her mother for help with Dolly as she has had no contact from Alex.

She added: ''My mum's been helping me out with Dolly a lot this week because I've had tonsillitis. I've felt so ill

and I really don't want to pass anything on to her. Meanwhile, at the time of writing this, I still haven't heard a thing from Alex.''

The couple have had an acrimonious split with Chantelle accusing Alex of turning their home into a ''sex dungeon'' and dressing as his female alter-ego Roxanne for sexual thrills.
