Christine Bleakley: 'I hate the internet's faceless bitchiness'

By
Christine Bleakley has argued that she was given a "raw deal" on Daybreak and blasted the "faceless bitchiness" that accompanied her stint on the show.

The Dancing on Ice presenter said she refused to let herself "become consumed" by online criticism of the ITV breakfast format, which she and Adrian Chiles were axed from in November.

"A lot of it wasn't fair - I think we were given a raw deal at times... the internet has created a lot of faceless bitchiness," she told Fabulous.

"I don't dwell on it, I don't even read it. What is the point of changing your mood - and probably your whole day - because of something that someone you don't even know wrote?

"I won't have them making me feel miserable. If you allow yourself to become consumed by that kind of stuff, you're not going to do yourself any favours. You can't live your life like that. I can't make people like me."

Bleakley went on to say that she "learned a lot" from her troubled Daybreak stint and would happily reunite with Chiles in the future.

"He's such a good mate," the former One Show host claimed. "He has this reputation for being miserable and yes, he certainly has his moments, but he makes me belly laugh and he's on really good form at the moment.

"[Reuniting is] something we've talked about, and if the right thing came up then definitely. We work so well together, we understand each other. It's almost like a telepathy."

Earlier this year, Bleakley described Daybreak as a "challenging" experience and said it was "possibly the toughest thing" she'd ever done.
