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

- 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
