Frankie Bridge on why she and husband Wayne are excited to host a family Christmas for the first time
The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge is planning her biggest family Christmas ever this year, and couldn't resist letting HELLO! Online into her big plans for the season. "This year I'm hosting Christmas Day for the first time ever, which makes me feel like I'm meant to be really grown up," she says in her Christmas video message.
"I've completely cheated with the Christmas Dinner, I've order it already so it's going to ready made – unlike my mum who does everything from scratch, so I'm going to be nervous!"
Frankie is mum to sons Parker, three, and 16-month-old Carter with husband Wayne Bridge, the retired footballer currently starring in I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, and she says she can't wait for him to rejoin the household for her favourite time of year.
"The one thing I'm most looking forward to this Christmas is seeing the boys' faces when they open their presents. The oldest one is just started to understand what opening a present is and what exciting thing is inside. So I think Wayne and I are more excited this year, but they're getting there!"
And there's another bonus in getting her super festive side of the family over for Christmas Day. "I'm hoping I can get some Sanford traditions over to the Bridge household for my kids to learn," she says. "I just hope they love Christmas as much as us, because I've made Wayne learn to love Christmas – unfortunately for him!"
The former S Club Juniors' star's joy in reuniting her loved ones over the holidays made her a perfect spokeswoman for our campaign in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital. And we hope that you will join Frankie and HELLO! by supporting this very worthy cause. We all like to be with our loved ones this time of year. For the families of patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital, this is especially true.
With your support, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity could help fund family accommodation so mums, dads, brothers and sisters can stay close by, or help fund the creation of bigger rooms in new hospital wards so parents of the most seriously ill children can stay by their bedside 24 hours a day.
The charity also funds play specialists so that children can enjoy some festive fun despite going through very difficult times, and funds research and equipment that will enable the hospital to find new cures and save more lives.
Every donation to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity will help keep families together this Christmas. And be sure to check back tomorrow to find out which of our wonderful celebs will be popping out from door number seven!
