UPDATE: She’s been canned.
It has been reported that Frank Lampard’s fiancé Christine Bleakley is about to be canned from her high profile presenting job.
Inspired by her ‘Sport Relief’ training regimen, as well as her own sister’s personal tales of dieting and sharing germs on the elliptical machines, Frank Lampard’s fiancée has officially jumped aboard the fitness DVD bandwagon.
At first glance, ‘Christine Bleakley: The Workout’ seems to have fallen into the cheesy trappings of all the awesomely bad product shills and late night infomercials before her – right down to the title of her signature exercise, the ‘Bleakley Blaster’. Even though an at-home, calorie-burning sweat session never killed anybody, we do know of this one gal who broke several of her critical typing/drinking tools (i.e. fingers) just by shoving the coffee table out of the way pre-Tae Bo tape.

Early in the season it’s difficult for players to work themselves into sufficient frenzy to rip their shirts off and run around the pitch in merriment. Not so much at stake, y’see.
But fortunately for ab connossieurs like our good selves, trauma and disappointment also evoke a need to bury noses in polyester. So if you’re commiserating your team’s loss this weekend, just remember: every shirt has a silver (ish) lining.
