Christine vows to match-make for ‘picky’ Adrian

Christine Bleakley is determined to find Daybreak co-star Adrian Chiles a new woman, but claims he is ‘a very picky man’.

The Irish beauty, 31, is on cloud nine with boyfriend Frank Lampard, 32, but says she won’t be happy until divorcee Adrian finds a girlfriend.

“I will aim to set Adrian up with someone in 2011, but I’ve tried before and it hasn’t worked,” she tells this week’s Closer magazine.

A fussy Adrian, 43, who divorced Radio 4 presenter Jane Garvey last year after 11 years of marriage, admitted any potential new partner would have to share his love of the beautiful game.

“If I take a girl out, it’ll be to my favourite pub, the Hawthorns, for a pint after watching a West Bromwich Albion match.

“If she can’t handle that, then she can sling her hook!”

Adrian, who has two daughters Sian, seven, and Evelyn, 10, has worked with Christine for the past three years and the two have even planned a Christmas dinner together.

“We’re going to have a festive gathering with 20 friends at Adrian’s house just before Christmas Day. Adrian’s actually an amazing cook,”

Adrian joked: “Christine’s the best guest to have round because she eats everything on her plate and always asks for more. I’ve never seen anyone eat so much. She’s like a human bin.”
