Never in a million years did I think I'd end up in London."But London's where she has been since July 2007 when she landed the role as co-presenter of BBC1's The One Show opposite Adrian Chiles.The duo's on-screen chemistry saw ratings soar and Chiles was approached by ITV to front its new breakfast show Daybreak.
The couple moved across the pond earlier this year after it was revealed that Frank would be joining the MLS soccer team New York City FC.
Christine said ahead of the big move: "I'm looking forward to having a bit of an adventure.
"I was still working with the same crew so it felt like home from the beginning.
It kind of just happened and I gave myself three months to try it out.
I'm excited about going to all the different sporting events, I want to go to everything there is."She also added that their wedding plans would have to be put on hold for now, while they adjust to their new lives.
She told the Daily Mirror: "It would be lovely to try to get it done but we don't really know where we are with Frank and football.Since then she has presented three series of Dancing On Ice alongside Phillip Schofield and a range of other ITV shows."I'm doing a travel series for ITV that takes me back to my roots in Ireland," she says."As much as it's fantastic sitting on a studio sofa talking to celebs I do love getting out there and experiencing different people and things." There's also an entertainment special with Spandau Ballet on the cards which will see Christine spending two weeks with the band."I'll be hanging out with them and delving into their lives," she says.At 35, with questions about her impending nuptials off limits, there is only one thing I'm left wondering."God yes, of course I want kids.Frank's girls ask me when I'm having a baby and it's something I'd absolutely love - when the time's right."I don't like talking about it too much because I've friends who struggled to have kids but certainly if and when it happens there will be a little bit of a party."Christine is supporting the launch of Soft & Gentle's Don't Sweat It campaign which aims to get women to share the embarrassing yet potentially humorous moments we all have which can be dealt with using a positive attitude and a good sense of humour.
