Is Christine Bleakley Facing ITV Axe?
Broadcaster reported to be concerned over poor value for money...
The former Daybreak presenter - who was lured away from the BBC in a £4m deal back in 2010 - will be out of contract in June.
And a source told The Mirror that she is unlikely to get the same terms again.
"Christine is no longer the golden girl of ITV so a big new golden handcuffs deal is out of the question," the insider said.
"If she isn't careful and reasonable in her demands she could be frozen out."
The source claims that C-Bleakley has been "very picky" over what shows she has worked on since joining the broadcaster - and that it doesn't feel it has got good value for money from her.
"If you are spending millions on talent you want them on screen, and aside from a Dancing On Ice series once a year Christine has barely been on ITV. They have not got value for money."
