'Soon everyone will be too scared to do anything for fear of offending someone. It's ridiculous, I believe people need to use their common sense and stop looking for injustice or offence in everything. 

The single star then extended an offer of a date to Laurence, saying: 'I think Laurence is gorgeous. I'm 36 and not at all 'woke', so Laurence give me a call!'  

The blonde bombshell had her first taste of fame when she entered the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2006, despite not being a celebrity.

Initially, when she went into the compound, she was tasked with pretending to be part of a fictional band.

Chantelle went onto marry singer Samuel Preston at the Dartmouth House, in Mayfair in August 2006 after they fell madly in love with each other in the house. 

However, the exes were devastated when they decided to part ways for good and end their marriage only ten months later.

Chantelle raises her daughter, aged seven, with her ex-boyfriend Alex Reid whom she split up with three months after their baby was born in July 2012.  

The star also revealed she is still 'really close' with her ex husband Samuel, 38, with the star admitting she 'adores him and that he told her to keep her dress. 

The star's interview comes little over a week after Laurence revealed he once broke up with a girlfriend because she liked a pro-#MeToo TV advert.

The actor told his ex-lover: 'Bye. Sorry I can't do this with you,' after she praised Gillette for their TV campaign on 'toxic masculinity'.

It comes after a furious row over his Question Time showdown with academic Rachel Boyle, which saw him call her a 'racist' for describing him a 'white, privileged male' in a debate about Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. 

The Lewis star said 'throwing the card of racism at everybody... [is] really starting to get boring', triggering a Twitterstorm in which some praised him for his 'common sense' and others brand him a 'disgrace'.  

The controversial Gillette advert subverted the razor brand's famous 'The Best A Man Can Get' slogan by challenging traditional views of what it means to be a successful man.

It featured news clips of reporting on the #MeToo movement, as well as images showing sexism in films, in boardrooms, and of violence between boys.

In an interview with the Delingpod podcast, Mr Fox, who has two children with actress Billie Piper, 37, said of his Gillette argument: 'I don't know how we ended up together. It was a very short relationship.

'We were walking down the road together and she was talking about how good the Gillette advert was. I jut looked at her and went, 'Bye. Sorry I can't do this with you.'

It is not clear which former girlfriend Mr Fox was referring to.

He told the podcast that before his current relationship began, he was put off dating women under 35 because they are 'primed to believe they are victims'.

Mr Fox's previous girlfriends include DJ Lilah Parsons, Sky Sports News presenter Kirsty Gallacher, 43, and Vogue Williams, 34.

Asked what his former flame would think about him sharing the unusual reason for their break-up he told the podcast: 'She will probably sit there and say, 'See I told you he was patriarchal. He's abusing me and I'm offended.'           

Last week Fox risked sparking further controversy by criticising Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes for including a Sikh soldier in his World War I drama 1917. 

The epic war movie has been nominated for ten Oscars — including Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture.

But despite these plaudits, Fox has questioned the credibility of the film's storyline and what he describes as the 'incongruous' inclusion
