Christine Lampard's funniest moment: Prank on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway

By Nadia Breen

Christine Lampard has been a firm favourite on our screens for over a decade.

The 42-year-old started off her career as a TV runner before training up as a floor manager for BBC in Belfast.

Christine has now presented and appeared in a long list of shows including Loose Women and Lorraine.

Here's a throwback to probably the funniest moment in Christine's career so far, a 'Get Out Of Me Ear!' Prank with Ant & Dec on Saturday Night Takeaway..

Back in 2014, The Newtownards woman was tasked to prank a number of visitors at 'her house', doing everything the duo asked her to do and say.

The first arrival was a security advisor, with Christine having to say: "Hi I'm Christine, nice to meet you, come on in.

"Don't ask for an autograph, it's chill time today."

She then added: "Have you ever worked for a wag before? I bet this wag wasn't getting married to Chelsea's all time best goal scorer though, aye?"

"High five, Mike."

She then goes on all fours on the floor after telling the advisor: "Security systems for me was just a big dog, in fact to be fair it wasn't even a dog, it was me on all fours most of the time, like this.

"Woof, woof."

The Co Down woman then shows her guest up to the 'work-out room', to which Ant & Dec tell viewers: "She doesn't have a clue what's in this room."

Upon entering, Christine laughs as she sees a dog agility course and then has to demonstrate, as she says: "Time me!"

A second advisor then appears at the front door, with Ant and Dec telling the presenter to say she wants "the best", with the Northern Irish native having to sing "Simply The Best".

When talking about security, the second man says: "The guys can go out with you if you want them to," with Christine replying: "I'm going out with somebody though."

The North Down woman then says: "I've got what I'd like to be the panic room, it's our ball room. I was on Strictly Come Dancing you know."

Ant and Dec had set the room up with a ball pit, which Christine then jumps into and asks the advisor to get in with her.

A third and final expert then arrives at the property, with the celeb talking to him with a book on her head.

"My posture is terrible, Phillip Schofield keeps telling me off," she says before telling her guest to try it himself, and chanting "Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea."

The TV presenter then takes him into the 'utility room' and to her surprise, a man is there wearing only boxers as he irons clothes.

She says: "Take a look, see what you think."

Christine slaps the surprise guest's bum and says: "Hurry up with the ironing would you for goodness sake.

"It takes him forever. I need that done by the end of the day."

Christine then takes him into a final room, where she reveals Ant and Dec hiding and that it was all a prank.
