Frank Lampard’s new squeeze Christine Bleakley is going to be at Stamford Bridge today to watch her boyfriend play for Chelsea for the first time, but she will be sitting in an Everton hospitality box!
She has been invited to the match by some friends – all diehard Evertonians, and she has been told that she is not allowed to cheer if Lampard scores!
A friend was quoted in the Mirror as saying: “”Christine was never, it is fair to say, a hardened football fanatic prior to meeting Frank. But since then she’s really started making an effort and taking an interest in the full-time footie scores, monitoring both Frank and the club’s progress.
“Some of her closest friends are well-connected Everton supporters and they’ve invited her to go along this weekend. They’ve given her full hospitality tickets and access to the chairman’s box – Bill Kenwright, the chairman of Everton that is.
“Christine immediately called Frank to tell him she was coming to cheer him on – and then had to admit it would be from the wrong end of the ground.
“He laughed it off, and told her she was forgiven, so long as she didn’t join in chanting some of the Toffees’ risque terrace songs.”
“It’s also going to be a cloak and dagger job getting her into the ground.
“But she is really excited, and has told Frank he’d better score her a goal!”
I think i may be going down the bookies to have a flutter on Frankie to score the first goal. I’m sure he will be trying hard to impress his new lady! (In fact he may score twice, but i don’t think they will offer odds on that!)
