Christine Lampard shuts down Eamonn Holmes over jibe about her hubby Frank

The This Morning host was left red-faced

Eamonn Holmes has been up to his usual cheeky tricks on This Morning, but today Christine Lampard put him in his place!

Eamonn, 59, couldn't help but make a dig at Christine's football manager hubby Frank Lampard after his team's defeat at the weekend.

While hosting This Morning with wife Ruth Langsford, the couple cut to Christine in the Loose Women studio to ask her what was coming up on the show.

But Eamonn soon made things awkward when he brought up Chelsea manager Frank's recent 4-nil loss to Manchester United.

Eamonn asked Christine, 40, over their video chat: "Christine, I'm so concerned about Frank. How was he on Sunday night?"

Ruth then jumped in to tell her husband not to goad Christine and said: "Don't rub it in."

Christine replied to Eamonn: "Do I have to go there?" and she let out a nervous chuckle.

"Ok, I see what you're saying," Eamonn teased.

Christine, I'm so concerned about Frank. How was he on Sunday night?

However, Christine cheekily put the presenter in his place by adding: "It's not how you start, it's how you finish, Eamonn."

That certainly told him!

Christine's comeback had Ruth and her Loose Women co-stars in stitches and after getting the message, Eamonn told Christine: "Very good, very good."
