Paddy McGuinness has been criticized by fans after he failed to publicly announce his supportive wife Christine during her time on ITV’s show The Games.
Fans of the popular Olympic-style reality TV show know how tough this competition can be after long days of training with commitments to work and home life.
So when Paddy, 48, didn’t wish her luck on the live show earlier this month and didn’t appear in person or on video link, they took to social media to share their concerns.
One fan asked on Instagram: “Why don’t you post about how awesome @christinemcguinness is doing.”
Christine, 34, showed her joy by pole dancing with a javelin.
Top Gear’s Freddie Flintoff, 44, said: “Paddy wouldn’t like that.”
A source told The Sun: “Paddy has kept quiet about how well she is doing. Some think it’s a bit odd. “

They added: “Many other contestants have had their families visit the London ground and cheer them on from the side.”
Mirror has reached out to Paddy’s rep for comment.
But despite her apparent lack of support from her other half, Christine, who was not long ago diagnosed with ADHD – just months after learning she has autism, put in the effort.
The fitness fan showed off her incredibly toned abs, which she used very well in the reality competition Game.
The show sees celebrities compete in a variety of sporting events after going through 12 weeks of grueling training before taking on a series of sporting challenges in live shows.
Christine was delighted to be on the show and along with fellow contestant TV & Radio presenter Will Njobvu went to the pool and admitted that they needed to learn how to swim.
She told followers: Christine added: “We were both just learning to swim as adults. But while I’ve never really swam before, @will_njo is really scared of swimming! Now let’s go! look at that smile #It’sNeverTooLate.”
Christine also bravely spoke about her first diagnosis in August saying she was told she had “scored well” and had scored well on a questionnaire measuring Autism Spectrum Disorder. .
She says her diagnosis was finally ‘released’ as it helped her understand her behaviour.
Talking about how autism has affected her relationship with comedian husband Paddy, Christine says she sometimes hides aspects of her personality from him.
Appearing on Loose Women, she said: “I didn’t realize I was doing it in front of my husband either. There are things I do that he doesn’t know about. Especially hotel rooms.
“I’m always afraid to say it out loud because I know it sounds weird and different. Or if I go into a hotel room, I’ll rearrange my furniture, I’ll take pictures on the wall. I want a really simple room. .”
But despite her diagnosis, Christine, mother of 8-year-old twins Penelope and Leo and Felicity, 6, is determined that her difficulties with autism don’t stop her.
She added: “Now that I’m doing it more and more, it’s getting easier and I’m pushing myself to do it because I want my kids to go out and have fun and I don’t want to prove it. autism holds back any of us. backside.”
