Christine Bleakley has confessed she loves to indulge herself with a slap-up meal as a treat for hitting the gym.

The 33-year-old TV presenter is engaged to footballer Frank Lampard and revealed, while they live quite healthily, they don’t deny themselves a takeaway feast every now and then.

Christine said: “For me, one of the big advantages of exercise is that you can allow yourself treats. One of our favourites is a big slap-up Chinese meal occasionally, but generally we eat pretty healthily. I think it’s about enjoying everything, but in moderation.”

And the Dancing On Ice presenter revealed she sometimes works out with her footballer fiance, despite him being much fitter than her.

She said: “Frank does run with me sometimes – but he adjusts his pace down to suit mine. His level of fitness is extraordinary. Top footballers are like racehorses and I could never ever keep up with him or reach his levels.”

Christine met Frank at the Pride Of Britain Awards in 2009, and she says her knowledge of the ‘beautiful game’ is improving all the time.

“I love the game now and really enjoy going to the matches. Frank’s dad has got me into it more than anyone, as I sit with him at the games and I’ve picked up lots of knowledge.”
