CHRISTINE McGuinness has shared a sweet tribute to celebrate best friend Chelcee Grimes’ 31st birthday.
The model, 35, posted a flurry of unseen photos of her and the singer-songwriter on nights out and trips together.
In one photo, the pals looked closer than ever as they posed for a series of snaps from a photobooth.
Christine – who split from her husband Paddy McGuinness in July 2022 after 11 years – also shared a photo collage of some of their favourite moments.
The duo were seen flashing big smiles on various outings – including pictures of them on holiday together.
Christine wrote: “I think I’ve loved your 30th year on earth more than you have. I’m excited for your 31st year. Your life is unreal, smashing it. Happy Birthday.”
Just last week Christine and Chelcee looked closer than ever as they shared a hug on a night out.
The TV star shared a clip of them both as they embraced during a boozy night out.
This comes after the pair were spotted kissing at Winter Wonderland in December.
The mum-of-three met Chelcee on ITV’s The Games last year.
The pair have holidayed together and Chelcee arranged a surprise trip to a spa for Christine’s 35th birthday.
In June last year, The Sun on Sunday pictured them walking arm-in-arm on a girls’ holiday with other pals in Croatia.
Speaking about her friendship with Chelcee for the first time Christine told Fabulous magazine in the summer: “Chelcee is my soul sister. Just straight away from the day I met her; I just loved her.
“She’s hilarious. And honestly, it was just the best time on the show.”
Christine recently revealed the heart-breaking reason she is still living with her ex Paddy.
She said: “I’ve known Paddy for 15 years so I don’t know life without him.
“I like slow changes, and we’re alright – we’re family.”
But Christine insisted she will eventually move on, telling new! magazine: “It’s certainly not a long-term or forever plan.”
