Chantelle Houghton enjoyed date with secret admirer

London: Reality TV star Chantelle Houghton declined several guys` invitations because she was looking forward to going out with an unnamed admirer.

After parting ways from fiance Alex Reid last October, this was said to be her first date.

"I have got lots of proposals, but I declined because I went on my first date with my mystery man last week. We had a really nice evening and we chose a place where we didn`t get disturbed," quoted Houghton as saying.

"I had gone to a charity lunch in aid of Cancer Research in Britain with Lucy Mecklenburgh last week. It was held at The Grove hotel in Hertfordshire. We had a really nice time and I ended up going on to a bar with Mecklenburgh and her stepmum Tracey afterwards, where we drank apple Bellinis and peach Martinis," she said.

Houghton, who has nine-month-old daughter Dolly with Reid, enjoys cooking.

"I love cooking. I had a really nice family lunch with my mum, her partner at my house Sunday. I cooked roasted chicken. I like cooking, but I don`t get why it takes so long. It takes hours to prepare and then it`s gone in 20 minutes," she said.
