Christine Bleakley In Elen Rivas Xmas Spat
Former Daybreak presenter drawn into Twitter row with Lamps' ex...
The former Daybreak presenter took the bait after Elen claimed on Twitter that she and Frank had tried to stop her talking to her children at Christmas.
Elen had tweeted: "Sad a father would deliberately stop his children from speaking to their mother over Christmas. You would have thought the girlfriend would have a little maternal understanding..;(."
Christine responded by re-tweeting a friend's comment saying: "Looks like someone is up to their old tricks again, telling lies!"
And she also RTed another comment saying: "What mother would leave her kids at Christmas in the first instance."
But rather than hit back directly, Christine tweeted: "I'd happily put the record straight but really don't think twitter is a place to do it when children are involved."
Spaniard Elen appears to have been spending Christmas in New Delhi, India, while Frank and Christine were in the UK with his children Luna, six, and Isla, four.
