Christine McGuinness admits that she has never watched any of the TV shows that made her husband famous.

Christine McGuinness, the ex-Real Housewives of Cheshire star, has admitted that she had no idea how famous her husband Paddy McGuinness was when they first met.

Christine McGuinness has admitted that despite being married for ten years, she has yet to watch the shows that propelled her husband Paddy to international fame.

The 33-year-old beauty queen admitted that she had no idea about the Phoenix Nights star’s TV success when she first met him.

Christine had been so busy establishing her own modeling career in 2007 that she had no time to relax and watch television.

Christine McGuinness: A Beautiful Nightmare, her new book, recounts their first meeting at a Liverpool tennis tournament, where the blonde bombshell was a model in a fashion show.

“Patrick was just a stand-up comedian,” the mother of three wrote, “and to be honest, even if he had a thriving TV career, I wouldn’t have known who he was – I was too busy earning to sit down in front of the telly.”

“I haven’t seen Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights or Max and Paddy’s Road To Nowhere yet.”

Since 2011, the comedian has been married to Christine, with whom he has twins Penelope and Leo, eight, and a five-year-old daughter Felicity.

Paddy first appeared on television more than two decades ago, when he teamed up with pal Peter Kay.

Before joining Kay’s upcoming comedy series, he first appeared on That Peter Kay Thing in 2000.

Both chums rose to fame in the Bolton working men’s club comedy when the British sitcom Phoenix Nights became an award-winning hit.

In 2004, the Channel 4 spin-off Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere was also a hit.

After landing the hosting job on ITV’s hugely popular dating series Take Me Out, Paddy has become a household name in his own right.

Paddy has recently been revealed to have landed a presenting role on Top Gear alongside Freddie Flintoff and Chris Harris, following Matt LeBlank’s departure.
