CHRISTINE McGuinness started her career in the spotlight as a Miss Liverpool.
Now, she's married to Take Me Out host Paddy McGuinness, has a substantial online following thanks to her fitness, and has become a spokesperson for several charities. Here is the lowdown of the light of Paddy's life…
Born Christine Martin, the star was born in Merseyside in 1988.
Taking on the world of beauty pageants, in 2007 she bagged the Miss Commonwealth title, and won Miss Liverpool, at the tender age of 18.
Soon after she modelled for Liverpool-based boutique Cricket in her bikini at the Liverpool Tennis Tournament.
It was here that she met TV funnyman and Phoenix Nights star Paddy, 43.
They married in 2011 at Thornton Manor in Wirral after three years together.
Christine and Paddy have three children — twins Leo and Penelope, four, and nine-month-old Felicity.
After giving birth to Felicity, Christine used social media to proudly show off her three-stone weight loss in three months.
She also tracked both pregnancies on Instagram, and her bid to keep healthy while they came to term.
Before hitting the gym, she wrote online: "I can't exercise for at least 6 weeks after my c-section but I'm not in any rush. Recovery is key."
On Leo and Penelope's fourth birthday, Christine revealed that the twins were on the autistic spectrum – and struggled with social interaction and communication skills.
The devoted mum made the revelation through a poem – and reassured them that they were "totally unique and fantastically awesome" regardless.
She and Paddy later spoke more openly about the revelation, and Paddy explained: “We’d been to see a paediatrician and at the end she said quite casually, ‘I’m absolutely certain both the children have autism’.”
Christine, who immediately started “grieving for ‘normal’ children”, explained: “I was so angry with her.
“How dare she say that about my children, having only seen them for a few hours?
“It was the first I’d ever thought of them having autism – even if, looking back, it was obvious.”
Christine had a boob job following the birth of her twins, going from a 32D to a 32E.
Her marriage to Paddy seems to be perfect, and in 2016 he proved to be even more defensive over her than first thought.
Paddy was caught on video fighting with a Cheshire nail salon employee who'd given his wife a pedicure.
The employee had allegedly told Christine that he gave her a "hard-on", though the salon claimed he'd actually been talking about the "hard skin" on her feet.
