The brunette beauty is said to be the second star to ditch the MTV series in a matter of weeks following the shock exit of show-regular Charlotte Crosby, who walked following her heartbreaking ectopic pregnancy.

It's believed Chantelle - who was previously a stripper - is desperate to re-unite with her ex-boyfriend Tommy Sayers and didn't fancy jetting off to Kavos with the rest of the cast, with a source telling The Sun newspaper: "Chantelle's heart hasn't been in it since the cast started filming the new series. She has a lot of history with Tommy and it was either him or the show so she decided to quit for love."

Meanwhile, BBC bosses are currently deciding the line-up for 'Strictly Come Dancing' and Chantelle said recently she'd happily swap her hot pants, potty mouth and lap-dancing antics for foxtrots and elegant ball gowns on the BBC One hit show.

She told BANG Showbiz: "What I would actually love to do more than anything is 'Strictly Come Dancing'. I love dancing. If means I've got to stop swearing to get on 'Strictly', I will stop swearing."

And the loud-mouthed reality TV star believes her background in dance will stand her in good stead at impressing the judges and ultimately lifting the highly-sought after glitter ball trophy.

She added: "I'm a good dancer. I'd win it, guarantee I'd win it."
