Chelsea stalwart Frank Lampard may be facing an uncertain future at the London club but he has been offered a lifetime deal with TV star Christine Bleakley who has confirmed the pair will marry this year



The 33-year-old has previously been very coy about where and when she will tie the knot, but has finally cracked and said it will be happening in 2013.

The Dancing On Ice host has also revealed that it will be an |intimate and “private” wedding with just close friends and |family on the guest list.

The presenter has suffered a series of setbacks lately with her job at Daybreak being axed and poor ratings for her Christmas show That Dog Can Dance!

Newtownards-born Christine also told The Sun's Fabulous |magazine that she could never be accused of being a “bridezilla” |because she is just “too relaxed about it all”.

What could be very interesting is the bride and groom's first dance. Despite competing in Strictly Come Dancing in 2008, Christine revealed she is not a natural on the dance floor and experienced the “worst nerves” on the show.

“Dancing did not come naturally to me. Frank is a much better dancer than me and he's used to handling performance nerves,” she said.

However, the former One Show host and exercise fan definitely doesn't need to worry about fitting into her wedding dress.

There is now just one question on everyone's lips — will the pair (pictured) walk down the aisle in Northern Ireland or England?
