‘I was mortified, sobbing and so upset’: Christine McGuinness claims she was BULLIED ‘on Joel Dommett’s ITV show’… after his co-host stated she ‘had no f***ing idea who she is’

Christine McGuinness has spoken about the time she was bullied on TV last year – leaving  her ‘sobbing, upset and mortified’.  

The Real Housewives Of Cheshire star, 33, wrote about the experience in her autobiography, Christine McGuinness: A Beautiful Nightmare, yet failed to mention the show in question – although The Sun have revealed the programme.

Shock: Christine McGuinness has spoken about the time she was bullied on TV – leaving her ‘sobbing, upset and mortified’

Christine claims the perpetrator said: ‘I’ve got no f***ing idea who you are. I don’t care who you are, I don’t know who you think you are, and I don’t know what you’re even doing here’, leaving her heartbroken. 

Speaking about the aftermath of the slur, she said: ‘One of the directors came to check on me afterwards. I guess, as much as I tried to hide my devastation, I was mortified. I rang my husband, sobbing. I was so upset.’ 

MailOnline has contacted representatives for ITV and Donna comment. 

Christine’s agent ultimately persuaded producers to remove the vile moment as they insisted it ‘didn’t look good for anyone involved’.

She revealed she was contacted by the woman in question on social media, however she refused to reply. 

She said: ‘I didn’t reply and haven’t spoken to her since. I’m not a bully and I don’t pick on anybody, so I don’t want to associate myself with somebody like that.’  

Her revelation comes after Christine revealed her husband Paddy hated her appearances on The Real Housewives Of Cheshire and begged her to quit.

The model made cameos on the ITVBe series as a ‘friend’ of the cast members between 2017 and 2020, before turning down offers of signing on for good. 

She said her TV presenter partner was not on board due to believing ‘it was all about the glitz and glamour, and showing off your wealth’.

In her new autobiography Christine, who shares three children with Paddy, all of whom have autism, penned: ‘I really wanted to do something for me…

‘I needed to get out of the house and mix with other people, and in a way, I suppose a bit of respite from all the challenges I was facing every day at home…

‘Although I still couldn’t commit to becoming a full-time cast member, the producers agreed I could join as a guest Housewife and they would work around my schedule.’

Going on to candidly detail Paddy’s thoughts on her latest venture, she said: ‘Let’s just say it didn’t go down well at home. Patrick didn’t want me to have a public profile at all. He especially didn’t want me to join this show…

‘He thought it was all about the glitz and glamour, and showing off your wealth, which is so far-removed from my normal life…

‘And I agree it wasn’t quite the right fit; I don’t live a glamorous life and I’m not shopping for Chanel bags and going to swanky parties every day, which is the reputation of Housewives.’
