Reality star Chantelle Houghton has embarked on a new career as a Body Shop consultant.
The Celebrity Big Brother star, 37, become part of the Body Shop At Home team so she isn’t focusing on just homeschooling her daughter Dolly, eight, whom she shares with her ex Alex Reid.
In a piece to camera, the reality queen told her 31.9k fans she got herself a new career after being struck with boredom during the third national lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Chantelle has swapped reality television for working with makeup, and the mum is ecstatic about her new chapter.
She said: “Hey, I am pleased to announce I’m working with Body Shop At Home as a Body Shop consultant!
“I’ve loved the Body Shop for years. I remember being eight years old in the Body Shop with my mum trying on the makeup and spraying on all the stuff.
“I was vegetarian when I was about seven and became vegan in the last five years Lockdown, work, you can’t get out of your house, I’ve just been so bored!”
As well as her string of TV jobs, the personality has previously worked as a glamour model and a novelist.
Chantelle invited her fans to watch the Instagram Live Q&A with herself and senior regional manager of Body Shop, Suzie Palmer.
The makeup mogul sold all the benefits of her new job at Body Shop, including the perks of earning cash.
She added: “I was sitting at home the other day and thought I just really want to do something that I can focus on instead of just homeschooling.
“The whole mental health thing… you need to be focused on something. I want to earn money, who doesn’t want to earn money? Let’s be honest!”
In a positive spiel, Chantelle encouraged her mum followers to get involved.
The brunette revealed the job is giving her “purpose” and helping to rebuild her confidence.
She said: “Especially when you’re a new-time mum, or with a second baby or third baby, you sort of lose your identity. When you join something like this, it gives you a purpose and it’s so easy.
“When you do something for yourself, with most businesses you can’t get your friends or family involved. But with this, you can be really passionate and get others to be passionate about it as well.
“It’s such a drive. I lost a lot of my confidence years ago but even in the last couple of weeks I just feel like I wake up in the morning and I’ve got some sort of focus rather than just being a stay-at-home mum which I am right now.”
She added: “With this whole pandemic, work isn’t really there, you can’t do your daily job, so it’s just nice to see other people doing really well. The motivation I’ve felt from being around people at Body Shop at Home… you feel like you’re in it together.”
In the romance department, Chantelle has a lot of love in her life.
Last year, she got engaged to the love of her life Michael Strutt after three months of dating.
