Christine Bleakley has revealed that she would love to get Robbie Williams and his former Take That band mates on the One Show sofa.

The Co Down presenter reckons Robbie and the rest of his old band would be her dream guests on the popular BBC evening show.

Christine was speaking as she took part in a photoshoot with co-host Adrian Chiles to promote the new one hour Friday show, which kicks off from Friday, September 11.

The pair enjoy an off-screen chemistry as well as on.

Christine and Adrian have become close friends since she joined the prime-time chat show, replacing Mylene Klass, but their relationship has been the subject of much media speculation.

However they have both consistently denied rumours of a romance.

Speaking about the One Show’s guests Christine said: “I’m always quite impressed with them. I get really enthusiastic about our guests — once they arrive I know the show is really happening.

“The big American guests are really good — they fire answers back which translate really well with us.

“My dream guests would be Robbie Williams and Take That. Michael Caine was one of my all-time favourite guests.”

Adrian said he had presented lots of live television shows, but that the One Show had proved the toughest.

“It’s like the difference between writing for The Sun and The Times,” he said.

“It’s much harder writing for The Sun with a much lower word limit.”

Christine also compared the show to “going to the pub with your friends” and said she always felt like she was talking to her mum when she was presenting the programme.

The One Show, which is currently attracting five million viewers daily, is aired from Monday to Friday at 7pm on BBC1, with the extended show every Friday.
