The reality stars - who split last month shortly after the birth of their five-month-old daughter - have called a truce on their feud and have reached an ''amicable'' relationship for the sake of Dolly, but Chantelle is still struggling to cope in the wake of the break-up.
The blonde beauty told new! magazine: ''I've managed to get myself into a different place emotionally now. Alex and I are talking and things are a lot better between us. I feel like we've both had our say.
''He came to see Dolly last week and we chatted. It was amicable. I still get really upset, because it's a reminder ... there's a gaping hole when he goes. It's so hard.
''When you have a baby together, it connects you forever so part of me is bound to still love him. We might not be together, but at least Dolly can see we're OK. It's all about her now.''
Chantelle felt ''utterly betrayed'' when she discovered Alex liked to dress up as his female alter-ego Roxanne and couldn't cope with his irrational behaviour, but she has decided to put their differences behind her and focus on Dolly.
However, that didn't stop her from angrily tweeting this weekend: ''Another day, another girl messaging me saying Alex is asking them for sex. Knock yourself out the lot of you.''
