Loved-up: Alex Reid and Chantelle Houghton attempted to dispel showmance rumours about their relationship with a loved-up display at The Fighter DVD launch
They've been accused of putting on a 'showmance' to increase their public profiles.
But last night Alex Reid and Chantelle Houghton attempted to silence their critics with a very loved-up public display at the DVD launch of Mark Wahlberg's movie The Fighter.
Chantelle, 27, and 35-year-old Alex kissed and cuddled for photographers as they posed at the event, held at London's York Hall.
We're so in love: The pair even colour co-ordinated their outfits for the occasion
The pair even colour-coordinated their outfits, with Chantelle opting for a black vest top and white jacket, while Alex went for a black and white pinstriped suit.
Chantelle and Alex have also been trying to validate their relationship with some flirting on Twitter.
After Chantelle's PETA photocall outside the Houses of Parliament earlier this week, which saw the former Big Brother star dress up as a sexy tiger, Alex tweeted her: 'Well done for today babe. Wanna get with me in a cage? X'
Chantelle later replied: 'Aww thanks baby! erm...ok! haha. mwah X'
Close: The couple held hands as they left the party at London's York Hall
The couple were recently seen enjoying a luxury spa break at the five-star spa The Grove in Hertfordshire where they apparently 'got to know each other better.'
Moving on: Chantelle and Alex's apparent romance comes a few months after they split from their respective exes Rav Wilding and Katie Price
