Big Brother star Chanelle Hayes has spoken about how happy she is after rekindling her relationship with former housemate, Ziggy Lichman.

The on-off couple have been enjoying a passionate five days since being reunited on Friday at the finale of the reality TV show – and Chanelle says she couldn’t be happier.

“I’m over the moon,” Posh wannabe Chanelle told the Daily Star.

“I’m so happy. I’ve had so much fun since I’ve come out of the house but it doesn’t mean anything compared to my time with Ziggy.

“He’s hot, he’s gorgeous and he’s everything I want in a man.

“It’s all worked out so well – I don’t think I’ve ever been happier.”

Since Ziggy’s eviction last Friday, the besotted couple have been unable to keep their hands off each as they make the most of their 15 minutes of fame.

Chanelle, for one, is thoroughly enjoying her time in the spotlight.

“I’m loving living it up,” she said. “I managed to go on a huge shopping spree and spent about £3,000 in 10 minutes. I just couldn’t help it.

“And modelling is not something I have ever thought about. I just don’t think people are interested in looking at me.

“It’s harder than it looks but after a while I started to have a laugh.”

While in the Big Brother house Ziggy broke off their relationship by saying “it’s not you, it’s me.”

But now he’s keen to make it work with Chanelle – who wants to take it slowly.

“We are going to take it one day at a time,” Chanelle said.

“We are not rushing anything. But put it this way – I am absolutely smitten,” she added.
