Christine Lampard has supported her husband, Frank, as the former Everton manager shared a tribute to theatre producer and Everton chairman Bill Kenwright, who died earlier in the week at the age of 78.
Frank took to social media to share an image of himself with Bill, with the West End producer resting his hand on the footbal legend's shoulder. Both were wearing blue shirts, in reference to the colour of the football team they were closely associated with. In a touching tribute, Frank shared: "Bill. A man with a huge personality and an even bigger heart.
"He was deeply passionate about his beloved Everton and would give his time, knowledge and kindness to anyone that needed it. Listening to the many stories from your incredible career was such a privilege. It was my pleasure to call you a friend. My thoughts are with Jenny and his family at this very sad time. Thanks Chairman."
In a show of support, Christine was amongst the first to 'like' the post on social media, while many congratulated Frank for such a "classy" tribute, and offered their own support to the father-of-four.
One said: "Class as always from you Frank," while a second posted: "Well said super Frank, rip my chairman," and a third commented: "Condolences to family and Everton fans." Several more posted strings of blue heart emojis in the comments.
Earlier in the month, Christine and Frank were creating happier memories as they headed to the Pride of Britain Awards, which is the event where they first met back in 2009.
For the event, the Loose Women star, 44, beguiled in an off-the-shoulder navy gown as she graced the red carpet. Complete with a fitted bodice, romantic drop sleeves and a gothic train, Christine's royal blue dress was a serious contender for one of the best dressed stars at the awards.
The raven-haired beauty swept her mane over one shoulder and styled her locks in elegant curls. Adding to her natural features, Christine upped the ante with a smokey eye look, golden bronzer and glamorous caramel-toned lip.
Even though they met at the event, Christine once revealed on the Pride of Britain Life Changing Stories podcast that she almost didn't meet her future husband. "It was October 6, 2009, the Grosvenor House Hotel," she recalled. "I was doing the One Show and I was worried about coming in late but I thought, 'No, I am going to go'.
"Then Frank decided last minute - so technically neither of us was meant to be there at all. It turned out our tables were beside one another. A couple of people claim they were the reason we met."
After a brief introduction by Piers Morgan, the footballer manager told Christine how he watched her presenting on The One Show. "We all mingled a bit and started to chat that night. He was heading off to Ukraine with England at the time. He called me on my way home which I thought was quite charming."
