Christine Bleakley reveals she cried for ten minutes during Frank's beachside proposal

She'll already be back from the LA holiday on which her gorgeous footballer beau proposed. But Christine Bleakely must still be on cloud nine, after revealing that she began to cry even before Frank Lampard popped the question. The 32-year-old presenter rang in live to her show Daybreak to share the details of the simple beachside lunch when she promised to become Mrs Lampard.


She told her colleagues Adrian Chiles and Kate Garraway: "I was beyond shocked. It wasn't very glamorous, it wasn't very fancy. "It was very personal, very private, actually. "We were just having a gorgeous lunch by the beach and he simply popped the question. "It was completely out of the blue and he was starting to build up to it and it was a little bit lovey-dovey. "Halfway through the lovey-dovey bit I realised what he was about to say and I started to cry."


The TV favourite readily admits she's "nosey".  So Frank thoughtfully asked a friend who works in America to fly on ahead with the ring, worth an estimated £120,000, to prevent her from guessing his plans.

He then whisked his girl off on a £30,000 holiday, involving stays in luxury hotels in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. And the footballer, also 32, had even asked for her parents' approval beforehand. Christine and Frank have yet to set a date for the wedding, but it will take place in her native Northern Ireland. Guests of honour are likely to be his two children with former fiancée Elen Rives, Luna, five, and Isla, four.
