She told Chronicle Live: “I don’t want to speak about it.”

Chantelle quickly rose to fame on the 12th series of the MTV show, but quit after just one series.

Last year she was found guilty of smacking a woman on a boozy night out in a jealous rage over her ex.Chantelle Connelly declared bankrupt.

She repeatedly asked victim Lauren Alexander if she had “gone with” her ex Tommy Sayers during the attack in Newcastle.

Then she grabbed the victim’s phone and looked through it for Tommy’s name before jumping in front of her and punching her in the face.

The star sent Lauren flying into a wall during the boozy spat on October 28, 2016.

She needed three stitches to her mouth and also suffered two fractures in her wrist during the attack.

Chantelle had denied GBH, but she was convicted at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court.

Chantelle was fined £3,205 and sentenced to 200 hours of unpaid work at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court.Chantelle Connelly declared bankrupt.

Despite earning cash endorsing products on her Instagram account, her solicitor claimed the fine would have a “catastrophic” impact on her finances.

She made her announcement on Twitter, and wrote: “Fame and money isn’t everything… Health and happiness is!!”

But she later admitted: “I walked away from the biggest opportunity of my life for love and I regret that.”
