Bleakley wedding secrets

Engagement: Christine and Frank

Christine Bleakley’s proud mum has revealed the inside story of her TV star daughter’s engagement to Chelsea star Frank Lampard.

In a wide-ranging interview with her favourite Sunday newspaper, Newtownards woman Mina Bleakley told:

  • why Christine and Frank’s wedding WON’T be a lavish Hello! magazine style affair;
  • how Christine knew Frank was the man for her;
  • how the couple haven’t begun checking out wedding venues, contrary to reports;
  • why Frank was really in their local church in Newtownards;
  • how Mina and husband Ricky were won over by ‘gentleman’ Frank despite their worries about some footballers’ reputations;
  • how old-fashioned Frank phoned the couple from the USA them to ask for Christine’s hand; and
  • what Ricky told his future son-in-law
