Given her new role on Real Housewives of Cheshire the setting was appropriate as Christine McGuinness ventured out on Wednesday morning.

The wife of actor and TV presenter Paddy McGuinness was in high spirits as she made an appearance in leafy Cheshire town Wilmslow, where she was accompanied by a friend.

And Christine, 30, had good reason to smile having raised close to $£100,000 for the National Autistic Society through charity event the Twinkle Ball over the weekend.

On a blustery day the TV personality stayed warm in a pink quilted coat, while a simple white T-shirt and skinny jeans rounded off a very casual ensemble.

Completing her look with a pair of distinctive pink and silver trainers and accessorising with a vibrant Louis Vuitton handbag, Christine beamed as she made her way across the Parish town’s local high street. 

The mother-of-three is devoted to raising money for Autism after her oldest children, twins Penelope and Leo, were diagnosed with the condition, a developmental disability that commonly affects social interaction and general communication.

Christine, who joined the Real Housewives cast in February, recently revealed her overwhelming sense of guilt for their diagnoses because she is the only one to have looked after the children.

‘I blamed myself,’ she told OK! Magazine. ‘I thought it must be my fault because they’ve only ever been with me; I didn’t even let my husband look after them.’

Christine recently explained how she ‘waved her husband’ off to work when the twins were four days old.

She recalled telling him: ‘”Bye love it’s fine, I’ve got this all under control” and he fully focused on work…’ 

Christine and Paddy are now bracing themselves for their third diagnosis in four years with daughter Felicity, after Leo and Penelope began showing the symptoms as toddlers.

‘Felicity can’t be diagnosed until she’s three,’ she explained. ‘And she could be copying the twins’ mannerisms, but even at six months old she was tensing her body when she was excited.

‘She walks on tiptoes and she does a flapping arm movement when she’s happy or excited. These are common signs of autism.’
