Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard to wed this month
Christine Bleakley is set to get married to Frank Lampard in an intimate ceremony in London five days before Christmas.
The former 'Dancing On Ice' presenter and her footballer beau, who got engaged in 2011, are finally set to become husband and wife on Sunday December 20 when they exchange vows in front of their close friends and family.
A source said: "Christine and Frank have had the date set for a while but have been trying to keep it under wraps. 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."
The loved-up couple have asked Ed Sheeran, 24, to be their official wedding singer during the reception at the lavish members'-only The Arts Club in Central London.
The insider explained to The Sun newspaper: "Ed is keen but already has something in the diary that day, so he is trying to move things in order to make it."
Meanwhile, although the guest list is fairly small, Christine, 36, has reportedly invited her former 'DOI' co-star Phillip Schofield and presenter Susanna Reid to the nuptials.
Frank, 37 - who now plays for New York FC - has also asked his ex-England teammates John Terry, Rio Ferdinand and Wayne Rooney, and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho to attend.
