She wrote: 'When @RyanJOates drops your child off and you basically beg him to sort your family out but he tells you his family&friends have told him he should have left me even sooner than he did! What a lovely bunch of people.'

The 29-year-old added: 'I've met some mean people in my time but never actually thought someone was evil until just lately.'

Responding to fans' comments asking if she was okay, Chanelle also revealed Ryan had kicked them out of their home: 'I moved an hour away from family&friends to be with him so a bit unfortunate. He's kicking us out though so once he gets us out of here then yeah we will be near family'.

In another tweet, she added: 'We've not split up, he has walked out on me. Nothing mutual about it'.

The reality TV star also took to Instagram to share a collage of quotes, including one that reads: 'If he's the right guy, he won't leave.'
