Christine Bleakley 'will marry Lampard at Xmas bash'

Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard will reportedly tie the knot during a Christmas-themed party in 10 days' time.

The Wild Ireland presenter, 36, has been engaged to the footballer, 37, since 2011 and now Britain's The Sun newspaper reports they'll wed later this month (Dec15). According to the publication, Brit star Ed Sheeran will act as wedding singer at luxe reception venue The Arts Club in London. However, there could still be a change of plan due to his hectic schedule.

“Ed is keen but already has something in the diary that day, so he is trying to move things in order to make it," a source said.

The pair will reportedly stick to inviting close friends, with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and Frank's former teammates Rio Ferdinand, John Terry and Wayne Rooney rumoured to be among them.

Christine has apparently extended invites to This Morning's Phillip Schofield and flirtatious Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid.

“Christine and Frank have had the date set for a while but have been trying to keep it under wraps," the insider divulged. "They want it to be an intimate affair and have only invited close friends and family. They haven’t signed a big magazine deal like a lot of stars do because it’s not their style."

Frank signed a two-year contract with New York City FC in 2014, which has put the wedding on hold. However, the couple have always been sure of their plans once the big day arrives, as Christine revealed in an interview with Britain's OK! magazine in April (15).

"We know exactly what we want to do, so that’s half the battle!" she laughed. "Frank is slightly up in the air so we don’t know when he is heading off, so we’re on stand-by a little bit."
