Bleakley's Big Fat Gypsy Wedding

Christine Bleakley had her own Big Fat Gypsy Wedding this morning when the Daybreak host tried on a massive pink dress weighing around one-and-a-half stone.

The ITV1 star collapsed into giggles after she was helped into the massive dress by mother and daughter team Norma and Emma Green from the Channel 4 series about the over-the-top style on show at the weddings.

She said: "I've still got my jeans on just in case... honestly, it feels about five or six stone, my hips have already got little cuts in them, isn't that incredible? So fair play, as we say in Ireland, to anyone who can wear a dress like this."

Christine, who is dating Chelsea and England footballer Frank Lampard, did not think he would be very impressed.

She joked: "My other half is currently running a mile, you know that?"

The series follows Gypsy girls as they make plans for their big day, complete with elaborate dresses and celebrations.
