She was proudly clutching an alcoholic drink in each hand – one waving high above her head with the other raised seductively to her mouth.
Christine uploaded the image alongside the caption: ‘It’s been over 12 years since I last had a taste, I was 18 in Blackpool here, not sure where I found the pink wig but I think it was a great night!
‘I’ve thought about this a lot today, double vodka cranberry, one in each hand please.
‘New day tomorrow, we are the lucky ones, home, safe and well.’

Taking to Instagram Stories, the star warned the ‘vulnerable’, including her three autistic children, could go hungry as they have a ‘restricted diet.’
Christine, who is mother to twins Leo and Penelope, six, and Felicity, three, with comedian Paddy McGuinness, shared a picture of a love heart with the words ‘Be Kind.’

She wrote: ‘When you are emptying the shelves at your supermarket please bare in mind that you are emptying the tummy’s of our vulnerable, including my own children. [sic]
‘Many children and adults with autism have a very restricted diet, the variation of food they eat is quite often extremely limited.
‘Some people with autism and other conditions that include sensory food aversions will go hungry from your greed. ⠀
‘The supermarkets have stated that there is enough food, you DO NOT need to empty the shelves putting our vulnerable at risk of further health conditions.’⠀
Her loves: Christine’s children with husband Paddy McGuinness, twins Leo and Penelope, six, and Felicity, three, have all been diagnosed with autism and have a ‘restricted diet’
She told Loose Women: ‘The first time around with the twins, it was a shock, we were heartbroken, we didn’t know anything about autism. We were heartbroken,’
She explained that she and Paddy knew Felicity’s diagnosis before being told by doctors, spotting the signs from as early as six months.
‘It’s prepared us. We knew it was coming, we saw the signs so we were more prepared,’ she said.
‘It’s a relief because they can come across as being quite difficult, or challenging children,’ she added.
‘When Felicity started school, I wanted her to have the diagnosis before, so they know.’
