Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard

Christine Bleakley has denied rumours that she and fiancee Frank Lampard tried to bribe people out of their wedding slots to make way for their own nuptials.

The Northern Ireland TV presenter was angered by rumours that she and footballer partner Lampard offered fortunes to two brides and grooms to bump their wedding dates for them.

Reports suggested the Chelsea ace gave a couple £100,000 to switch their day at Ballymena’s Galgorm Manor, which is near 33-year-old Christine’s parents house.

“I’d never in a million years ask someone to move their wedding. Stuff like that makes you out to be a horrible person,” Christine told the Sun, adding she still had no “concrete plans” for her wedding with Frank.
