Christine Louise Bleakley is a Northern Irish broadcaster, best known for her current television work with ITV. Bleakley's television career began as a runner and she then trained to become a floor manager whilst studying for her A-Levels. She rose to fame when she began reading the news and on the Belfast Citybeat radio station, where she worked alongside Stephen Nolan and Stuart Robinson. In 2006, Bleakley became the co-host on the BBC Two television series Let Me Entertain You, alongside Brian Conley. The show lasted for two series and ended on 22 June 2007, after which she became the co-presenter of the BBC One magazine-style show The One Show in 2007, alongside Adrian Chiles until their final show in 2010, when the presenting duo transferred to ITV. Following their departure, Bleakey alongside Adrian Chiles joined the ITV Breakfast show Daybreak, which was a new programme at the time, replacing the long-running GMTV. They presented their final show on 5 December 2011 and were replaced by Dan Lobb and Kate Garraway on an interim basis. On 18 November 2011, it was announced that Bleakley was to co-host Dancing on Ice alongside Phillip Schofield as a replacement for Holly Willoughby, who had joined BBC One to co-present The Voice UK. After a decline in viewing figures, Dancing on Ice came to end after the ninth series in 2014.
