Speaking to OK! Magazine about whether he would be invited she said: ‘He’s more than welcome if he wants to – I doubt he will but he’s more than welcome.
‘Michael is just a grounded, normal bloke. He also understands that Preston was a big part of my life and our relationship is solid, so he’s absolutely fine with me inviting him to the wedding.
‘He trusts me completely and I trust him completely. I always thought you should never trust someone 100 per cent, but Michael’s changed my opinion on that. He’s definitely the one for me.’

She said their relationship was special but they were too young to understand true love.
The mother-of-one previously admitted that property developer Michael, 35, who she lives with in Wickford, Essex, is perfect for her.
The pair have only been dating for a short time but have known each other for nine years as Michael was Chantelle’s mother’s neighbour.
She said at the time of their engagement: ‘OK, I know it’s lockdown and isolation but he just asked me to marry him: I said YES. I will love him for ever.’
