Christine McGuinness has spoken of 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, but failed to mention the show in question – although The Sun revealed the program.

The publication states that the encounter took place on ITV2 series Hey Tracey! and the culprit was Joel’s virtual assistant, played by comedian Donna Preston.

Christine claims the perpetrator said, “I have no idea who you are. I don’t care who you are, I don’t know who you think you are, and I don’t even know what you’re doing here,” leaving her heartbroken.

Of the aftermath of the blemish, she said, “One of the directors came to check on me afterwards. I think as much as I tried to hide my devastation, I was mortified. I called my husband, sobbing. I was so angry.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for ITV and Donna comment.

Christine’s agent eventually persuaded the producers to cut the mean moment because they insisted it “didn’t look good for everyone involved.”

She revealed on social media that she had been approached by the woman in question, but she declined to reply.

She said, “I didn’t answer and haven’t spoken to her since. I’m not a bully and I don’t bully anyone, so I don’t want to associate myself with someone like that.”

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

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

She said her TV host partner wasn’t on board because she thought “it was all about the glitz and glamor and showing off your wealth.”

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

“I had to get out of the house and interact with other people, and in a way, I guess, a little respite from all the challenges I faced every day at home…

“While I still couldn’t bring myself to become a full-time cast member, the producers agreed that I could participate as a hostess and they would work on my schedule.”

She then candidly shared Paddy’s thoughts on her latest venture, saying, “Let’s just say things didn’t go well at home. Patrick didn’t want me to have a public profile at all. He especially didn’t want me on 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 lead a glamorous life and I don’t buy Chanel bags and I don’t go to fancy parties every day, that’s the reputation of Housewives.’
