Should have kept the smaller car! Christine Bleakley has a spot of bother trying to park her brand new Range Rover
She used to drive a small and sporty Audi that used to be able to zip round London and park in the tightest of places.
But Christina Bleakley has since upgraded to a bigger and bulkier 4×4, which is not as good as squeezing into parking spaces, as she found out to her detriment today.
The TV presenter was snapped in in the capital today getting into a spot of bother as she tried to parallel park her brand new Range Rover Evoque.
Nice car, Christine – but let”s see how you park it! Miss Bleakley is snapped by her new Range Rover Evoque in London today
Bleakley, who is engaged to Chelsea star Frank Lampard, made several attempts to try and get the car in the space in a residential street.
But after a frustrating few tries, she gave up and drove around until she found a wider, easier and more accessible spot.
Bleakley, who recently left Daybreak, used to drive a white Audi, but recently upgraded to the Range Rover Evoque, not doubt paid for out of her 283,000 payout from ITV”s breakfast show.
Attempt number one: Christina tries to parallel park her fancy new 4×4…
… and then tries one more time to squeeze in behind a red Mini
It is also the car of choice for many a celebrity, including Katie Price, Wayne Rooney and Justin Bieber.
After a year of 3am alarm calls, Bleakley is enjoying some well-deserved time off and will be making the most of her free days before she starts presenting Dancing On Ice in theNew Year.
She had a warm up with her co-host to be Phillip Schofield on Saturday when the pair hosted the charity telethon “Texting Santa”.
All sorted: Christine looked happy to have found a parking spot as she got out of the car
The premise of the show sees viewers texting “Santa” with donations, all of which will apparently be given to charity, but unfortunately it was given a lukewarm reception.
Chat show host Jonathan Ross, who appeared on the telethon, Tweeted: “Am heading off to appear, in costume, ontonight”s ITV telethon, Text Santa. Happy to oblige, but I hope it”s not a career defining moment.”
But Bleakley was clearly excited to be working with Schofield and said: “Phil is lovely – I”ve watched This Morning since I was no age and he”s a bit of a god in the telly world.”
So long, farewell: Christine and Adrian Chiles host their last Daybreak on December 5
