She's always been at pains to distance herself from the WAG label — but Christine Bleakley was the proudest of them all yesterday as she joined Chelsea’s victory parade.

The One Show presenter was spotted joining her boyfriend Frank Lampard as he and his team-mates celebrated their double win victory over the FA Cup final and Premier League.

Not only was the Newtownards lass happy to join fellow wives and girlfriends on an open-decker bus as it paraded through the streets of west London, she was dressed to impress as well.

Proudly sporting a Chelsea baseball cap and scarf, Christine snapped scenes of euphoria on her mobile phone from a vantage point on a bus travelling directly behind the players’ double-decker.

The streets were awash with blue and white as thousands of fans turned out to cheer Chelsea players during the parade.

Crowds of supporters watched captain John Terry and his teammates celebrating on an open-deck bus.

The parade set off from Stamford Bridge stadium and made its way along Fulham Road, King's Road and New King's Road.

Chelsea beat Portsmouth 1-0 in the FA Cup final at Wembley yesterday to clinch its first ever FA Cup and League double.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti's side won the Barclays Premier League with an 8-0 win over Wigan.

Didier Drogba was earlier spotted sporting a bra, which was assumed to be a reference to the “two cups” won by the club.

The team held the trophies aloft as the bus parade passed cheering and clapping fans.

Soaking up the atmosphere, the players stopped to sing and chant as they jumped for joy and waved at the crowds.

Bleakley, who has been shy in talking about her relationship with Lampard, has said previously that she doesn’t want to be called a WAG, saying: “I don’t understand the offside rule but I do understand the passion for football.”

But she’s definitely passionate about Lampard and celebrated with the Chelsea team on Saturday during a victory dinner at Frankie’s restaurant in Knightsbridge before heading to China Whites.
