Christine's been working in LA

Christine Bleakley could hardly hear herself speak while filming a Lionel Richie ITV special in LA last month.

The Northern Irish presenter, 33, was working next door to 85-year-old Hugh Hefner‘s Playboy Mansion, where helicopters were constantly taking off and landing.

‘What a racket!’ Christine tells the Daily Mail Weekend.

‘Luckily, it’s quieter on the other side – Julie Andrews lives there.’

But Christine wasn’t too bothered about the noisy interruptions.

She later told her Twitter followers how much she was enjoying hanging out with singer Lionel, 62.

‘Still in LA. Been spending time with @LionelRichie for an ITV special.’ Christine Tweeted.

‘He is a fully fledged legend x.’
