Christine Bleakley has been dating footballer Frank Lampard for over a year now and it’s been rumoured that a wedding could soon be on the cards.

So maybe the Co Down presenter was dropping hints to her boyfriend when she stepped out in a huge bubble-gum pink wedding dress on Daybreak yesterday morning.

Christine bravely agreed to model the outfit for a segment about Channel 4 show My Big Fat Gyspy Wedding.

Dressed in the enormous pink dress, Christine had her co-host Adrian Chiles and the rest of the Daybreak crew in fits of laughter as she tried to make her way through the stage door.

With actor Trevor Eve taking on the role of father of the bride, Christine needed some assistance to manoeuvre about the studio and up the steps to the Daybreak sofa.

The 31-year-old then attempted to sit on the sofa, telling viewers the dress weighed a stone-and-a-half, but felt more like five or six stone.

The gown she modelled was a less extravagant version of a dress worn by 17-year-old Sam in this week’s episode of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.

Sam’s dress weighed an incredible 20 stone and came complete with fibre-optic lights.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
