Christine Bleakley: Fitness DVD Dame
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.
Look CB, we fully support your desire to be creative with your income, we really do. It’s an admirable trait that we have in common, actually. Where we think you and the production company went wrong was with the ‘retouching is best done in the dark’ instructions given to the photoshop apprentice. You certainly have the right to bear cut arms, just as long as they’re actually yours.
