3. Christine Bleakley (31) TV Presenter Yes, we know, we know, she's dating footballer Frank Lampard but we couldn't show our Christine the red card. We've kept her onside because she's not engaged — just yet. And the Newtownards woman ticks all the boxes. Beautiful, talented, successful, wealthy, the Daybreak presenter has been taking some stick of late over falling viewing figures, but we're confident the breakfast show will start to pick up after its initial teething problems. A former Strictly Come Dancing contestant, Christine is the consummate professional and she does her bit for charity too. Who could forget her cross-channel water-ski for Sport Relief — and the girl doesn't even swim! Her exes include hunky ice hockey star Curt Bowen, Belfast businessman Mark Beirne and Dublin restaurateur Christian Stokes, to whom she was engaged. We' re sure it won't be long before Lamps pops the question, but in the meantime we're claiming her for our list.

The manager of a top Northern Ireland hotel has denied reports it is to host the wedding of Christine Bleakley and footballer Frank Lampard.

The Galgorm hotel near Ballymena has been the subject of recent media speculation after the Daybreak presenter was allegedly spotted checking it out.

Until now Galgorm’s management has refused to comment on the reports that the hotel will host the wedding.

But after weeks of speculation, acting general manager Paul Smyth said last night: “Whilst we are experienced in hosting various high-profile celebrities at the resort and would be delighted to host the wedding of Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard, I can confirm that Galgorm Resort and Spa has not received any inquiries from the couple.”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
