Christine Bleakley and Frank LampardIt feels like one of the longest engagements in showbiz, but it looks like Christine Bleakley has finally set a date for her wedding to footballer Frank Lampard.

Just as we were starting to panic that the pair would never make it down the aisle, sources say that Frank, 34, has finally persuaded Christine, also 34, to go for a summer ceremony, in July.

‘She’s thrilled’ a pal confirmed, ‘although it hasn’t left much time for planning. She’s frantic to buy a dress. Frank wants a big do, but it won’t be a tacky WAG bash.’

We should hope not!
