TV presenter and Loose Women star Christine Lampard has gushed over her husband Frank's new job with Premier League side Chelsea.

On today's episode (July 4), she revealed that the former footballer, 41, has signed a three-year deal with his old club to become the team's new manager.

The promotion means that Christine, 40, and their nine-month-old daughter Patricia are moving back to London.

Speaking on Loose Women, Christine beamed as she said: "It has been mad. If you don't know, Frank has signed for Chelsea. Not to play!

"It's quite a big deal. It's been a whirlwind couple of days, but yeah, it's out there now. He's back to where it sort of all began and it's a huge deal for all of us."

Fellow panellist Nadia Sawalha asked her if it will mean Frank has to change more nappies and Christine joked that he hadn't changed many.

She continued: "[It's] definitely nearer home, though. Obviously, he was at Derby last year and we had the most remarkable year in Derby. To all the fans who were fantastic with us, we loved it and everyone at the club. They couldn't have been better to us."

Speaking further, Christine said she feels "privileged" for Frank to have had his year at Derby County, but the new role at Chelsea is a "glorious" opportunity for him - although she admitted it could prove "stressful".
