Christine McGuinness signed up for Celebrity Antiques Road Trip so she could spend time with Corrie hunk Colson Smith.
The pair struck up a close bond while filming ITV contest The Games last year, so she was keen to see him again.
She told me: “When I was asked to take part in Celebrity Antiques Road Trip, they said, ‘Send us a couple of names of people you’d like to do it with’.

“And I said, ‘There’s only one person I want to do it with and that’s Colson’. When we met on The Games, we just spent the whole time laughing. We were the ones sat on the sidelines having a great time. We got on so well.
“Colson lives in Manchester and I live not far away in Cheshire. So I rang him and asked him to do the show with me.” Christine loved getting to see Colson again after so long. She added: “It was a bit of a reunion. We got to spend a few days together.”
Mum-of-three Christine, who has split from hubby Paddy, also wanted to do the show because she knew her family would love it.
She said: “My mum and my nan love antiques. I did the show because it’s something my nan will actually watch!” The episode will air later this year on BBC Two.
