Christine Bleakley: Every Silver Lining Has A Cloud

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.

UK newspapers are claiming that Bleakley and co-host Adrian Chiles (left) are to leave TV breakfast show ‘Daybreak’, which was launched with much fanfare in September 2010. Although nothing has been confirmed by the network as yet, it seems to be an open secret; a fact that has not pleased Christine, judging by the nature of this tweet. However, rumours that advertising revenue and viewing figures have been declining rapidly since the show’s launch abound, and pressure to make the change has been building for some time.

If you’re a Lampsy fan, don’t light the blue touchpaper of celebration too soon, though. Chrissy might be about to lose a ‘generous’ salary and her dignity as her presenting skills are autopsied across the media, but she will no longer have to leave her hubby-to-be alone in bed at three o’clock in the morning for a 6 am start.

That, and the fact she’s already lined-up to present ITV’s Sunday night slip-fest ‘Dancing On Ice’ from January, will probably soften the blow.

    I’m not her biggest fan but at least she has brains and worked her way up the tv career ladder before she even met Frank unlike some (Abbey and Coleen). It’s a strange reversal of fortune she must be the only wag who is worse off since dating a footballer.

    I honestly don't know why people dislike her so much.
