First look: Chantelle Houghton and Alex Reid turn Royal for The Exclusives

First look: Chantelle Houghton and Alex Reid turn Royal for The Exclusives

If you’ve been watching ITV2’s new show The Exclusives you’ll know all about the six wannabes journalists, fighting it out for their dream job.

And if you’ve not been watching it, you should.

On tonight’s episode, the rookies get their hands on celebrity couple Chantelle Houghton and Alex Reid for Closer magazine.

They’re set the challenge of recreating an iconic royal photograph to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and opt for a photo of Prince William and Kate Middleton on their wedding day last April.

A right royal mess

But it doesn’t quite go to plan.

After failing to find a replica of Kate’s gorgeous wedding dress for Chantelle to wear, Chris Goddard; an expert seamster – or not – gets to work on his own fabulous creation. Leaving it to the last minute, Chris sits down the night before the shoot with a piece of lace, a pair of nail scissors and a travel sewing kit.

The next day, Chris arrives at the shoot with his handiwork, which unfortunately for Chantelle only consists of a top half; a top half that needs to be fastened to pregnant Chantelle using bulldog clips.


“I look worse than the Princess in Shrek,” she exclaims.

You can make your own minds up on that…

Watch The Exclusives on ITV2 tonight at 9pm
