Footballer Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakey an item?

Newspaper reports are speculating the Chelsea star and multi-millionaire Frank Lampard and One-Show co-host Chrisitne Bleakley may be an item. Both have recently split from their long term partners.

Frank Lampard called it quits from his long term relationship with Elen Rives early this year while Christine Bleakey split from fiance Mark Beirne.

London evening paper, London Lite reports the Chelsea midfielder was spotted getting “very close” to Christine Bleakley of BBC's The One Show at Amika nightclub in Kensington.

A club source said: “Frank and Christine arrived with a group of people from Strictly Come Dancing, including Zoe Lucker and Joe Calzaghe and the dancers Aliona Vilani and Nicole Cutler.

They all sat together at a table in the VIP area, with Frank next to Christine.

“He looked smitten. I didn't see them kissing, but they were flirting and looked really into each other.”

Earlier that day Lampard, 31, scored two goals in Chelsea's 5-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers, before going on to join the audience for Strictly Come Dancing — where Christine was a contestant last year. The source added: “Frank was being the man in the club — he bought at least three bottles of champagne for the group, even though he was barely drinking himself.

“There were some outrageous dance moves being pulled, and Frank looked on as Christine showed off the moves she learnt on last year's show, but didn't get too involved himself.

“Most of the group stayed for a lock-in until 4.30am, but I'm not sure if Frank and Christine left in the same car.”

Bleakley, 29, was reportedly first wooed by Lampard last month at the Pride Of Britain awards.

She broke off her engagement to leisure entrepreneur Mark Beirne, 35, in January and Mr Beirne reportedly blamed Adrian Chiles, 42, Bleakley's co-host on The One Show, for the split. Both Bleakley and Chiles have denied any romantic involvement.
