This actually made us feel slightly sick when we heard about it. We of course love weddings here at Bridalwave, but upon hearing the news that Katie Price’s former guy Alex Reid and Jordan wannabe Chantelle Houghton have got engaged – and TV – we just couldn’t help thinking that it’s all a part of the fame game…

The 36-year-old cage fighter – who isn’t officially divorced from Katie Price – popped the question to his girlfriend of seven months on Saturday 8th October while appearing on Irish TV show ‘The Saturday Night Show’.

While appearing on the show Alex said: “We’re in Dublin, I haven’t got a ring, but you know what, I’m going to do it. Seriously, nobody tell anyone! Will you marry me?” Are you for real Alex? If can’t propose on TV and ask people not to tell anyone… Despite the couple claiming their love is real we can’t help feel that this is more of a marriage (and relationship for that matter) of convenience to help the two z-listers stay in the public eye.

Prepare for more reality TV bites as we’re sure Chantelle and Alex will soon sign up for their own show about their wedding a la Katie Price and Peter Andre. We wonder if Chantelle will go all Gypsy wedding on us or pink princess like Alex Reid’s soon to be ex Katie?
