The Games: Christine McGuinness gets emotional and walks off

Paddy McGuinness has been criticised by fans after he failed to publicly display his support wife Christine during her stint on the ITV show The Games.

Fans of the popular Olympic style reality show understand how hard the competition is after long days of training on top of work commitments and family life.

So when Paddy, 48, didn’t wish her luck during the live shows earlier this month and did not appear in person or on video link, they took to social media to share their concerns.

A fan asked on Instagram : “How come you aren’t posting about how amazing @christinemcguinness is doing.”

Christine, 34, showed her fun side by pole dancing with a javelin.

Top Gear’s Freddie Flintoff, 44, said: “Paddy isn’t going to like that.”

A source told The Sun : “It was noted Paddy stayed silent about how well she was doing. Some thought it a bit odd.”

They added: “Many of the other contestants had family visiting the London grounds and cheering them on from the side.”

Mirror has contacted Paddy’s representative for comment.

But despite the apparent lack of public support from her other half, Christine, who was not long ago diagnosed with ADHD – just months after learning she has autism, has been giving it her all.

The fitness fan showed off her incredibly toned abs, which she put to good use in the reality competition The Games.

The programme sees celebrities compete in a series of athletic events after undergoing 12 weeks of gruelling training before going head-to-head in a range of sporting challenges in live shows.

Christine was happy to embrace the show and together with fellow contestant TV & Radio Host Will Njobvu took to the pool admitting they needed to learn how to swim.

She told followers: Christine added: “We are both only just learning to swim as adults. But whilst I had just never really swam before, @will_njo actually had a fear of swimming! Now look at that smile. #It’sNeverTooLate.”

Christine has also bravely spoke about her first diagnosis in August saying she was told she was “high up the spectrum” and had scored highly on a questionnaire measuring for Autism Spectrum Disorder.

She said finally having her diagnosis was ‘liberating’ as it helped her understand how she behaves.

Sharing how being autistic affected her relationship with husband comedian Paddy, Christine said that she would sometimes hide aspects of her personality from him.






Christine admits she avoided social situations and became a recluse due to her conditions but is now learning to confront her fears

Appearing on Loose Women she said: “I didn’t realise I do that in front of my husband as well. There are things I do that he’s got no idea about. The hotel rooms in particular.

“I’ve always been afraid to say it out loud because I know it seems odd and it seems different. Or if I go to a hotel room I will rearrange the furniture, I’ll take pictures off the wall. I’d like a really plain room.”

But despite her diagnosis Christine, who is mum to eight-year-old twins Penelope and Leo and six-year-old Felicity, is determined that her difficulties with autism don’t hold her back.

She added: “Now that I’m doing it more and more, it’s becoming easier and I’m pushing myself to do it because I want my children to go out and have fun and I don’t want autism to hold any of us back.”
