Dieting limits star's chance of a baby

Big Brother star Chantelle Houghton has been told that she has little chance of conceiving a baby naturally after years of extreme dieting.

Ms Houghton, 27, whose weight plummeted following her divorce from pop star husband Preston in 2007, used to make herself sick after eating and drink water to fill herself up. The reality TV star, who dated Crimewatch host Rav Wilding, said she had decided to speak out to raise awareness of her condition.

Ms Houghton revealed she went to a gynaecology and fertility clinic after getting pain in her left ovary.

Houghton, who has been dating Katie Price's ex Alex Reid, said:"I hate myself and can never forgive myself. Because of my obsession with food and my crash dieting when I had bulimia, I've ruined my chances of having a baby naturally."
