Christine McGuinness and best friend Chelcee Grimes are all smiles at Winter Wonderland | The Sun

CHRISTINE McGuinness and Chelcee Grimes were full of the festive spirit as they hit Hyde Park's iconic Winter Wonderland.

The duo – who became close while filming ITV reality series The Games – let their hair down at the Christmassy event in the UK capital.

Christine, 34, who split from presenter husband Paddy, 49, earlier this year, looked snug in a white bobble hat and black leather jacket.

The mum of three captured herself cuddling giant Pikachu and Squirtle toys, while Chelsee had also secured another Pokemon teddy from a game.

Christine later captured herself strolling through a winter food stall and past a huge Ferris wheel adorned with sparkling LED lights.

She then beamed as she posed outside a fairground ride.
