Missing from the special dinner was Christine's partner Frank Lampard and Phillip's co-star Holly Willoughby. Christine has been close friends with Phillip since the two presented Dancing On Ice together up to 2014.

Phillip has often spoken highly of Christine. Back in 2017, when the return of Dancing on Ice was announced with Holly replacing Christine, he said: "Christine is one of the nicest people I have ever met in my life.

Nobody, nobody, in television is more thoughtful than Christine – which is why when it was announced that Holly was coming back to do the show, the first person that got in touch was Christine.

"She texted saying 'Oh my gosh, this is so exciting, please tell me I can come and watch?'" Off-screen, Phillip and Christine often enjoy dates alongside their partners – with Holly Willoughby and husband Dan Balwin joining in too.

The three couples have also holidayed together, in Portugal, over the years. Ant and Dec are also frequent visitors to the country.
