Appearing on ITV's Loose Women today, footballer Frank said the couple are "very ready" to become man and wife.

"We are going to do a small and pretty intimate [wedding], not a surprise thing, we like our privacy and keeping it to ourselves," he said.

As for the delay between the engagement and a wedding, he said: "We're actually having a great time, that's the thing. When we got engaged, we said we want to enjoy the fun time and we're both very busy. Like this morning, she's just finished now and I'm here and we'll meet up after."

Frank on Loose Women today.

Christine was co-hosting ITV's This Morning with Phillip Schofield today so, with Frank appearing on Loose Women, they didn't have far to go to meet up!

Frank – who has played for Chelsea and Manchester City – is currently getting ready for a move to the US where he'll play for New York City from 1 July.

When asked if Christine will be moving there with him, he said she's busy with her own projects but they don't like spending too much time apart.

"Christine has got bits on. She'll be backwards and forwards probably more than me. We are a couple that like to be together. We're not good at long distance for too long so we'll make it work. I'm actually back for two months over Christmas. We're just going to try and make it work and have fun along the way."
