Ordinary Boy Splits From Wife
THE ORDINARY BOYS frontman SAMUEL PRESTON has split from his reality TV star wife CHANTELLE HOUGHTON after only 10 months of marriage.
The English singer, 25, and the former model, 23, met on British show Celebrity Big Brother in January 2006.
A month later (Feb07) the couple confirmed their relationship after Preston split from long-term love Camille Aznar, and in April, the pair announced their engagement. They married last August.
A joint statement from the couple issued on Wednesday (27Jun07) reads, "After much soul-searching and tearful discussions we have sadly decided to end our marriage.
"We hope we can always remain friends and still love each other, but we both think we put so much pressure on one another to make our marriage work that it has ended up destroying our relationship.
"No-one else is involved in our decision."
