The pals headed to Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland in London on Thursday night where they posed together in beaming snaps uploaded to their Instagrams after winning some stuffed toys. 

Going on to enjoy a beer each in the Bavarian bar, they appeared to be in their element while chatting away.

A source that saw them at the event told the publication of the kiss: ‘It was a sweet moment between Christine and Chelcee as they sat on a bench outside and enjoyed live music.

It’s over: Paddy and Christine split in July. They share three children who they will continue to co-parent

‘Christine and Chelcee were both all smiles as they walked off hand-in-hand. It was a busy night and all the festival tents were packed to the rafters with people.

‘But they didn’t seem to have a care in the world and looked like they were in their own little bubble, it was cute.’

Representatives for both have been contacted by MailOnline for further comment. 

The pair became friends earlier this year after competing on ITV series The Games, and it has been reported that they’re ‘inseparable’ after jetting abroad for a secret getaway to Crete recently.

Chelcee has also been a huge support for mother-of-three Christine following her split from her husband Paddy earlier this year. 

Both Christine and Chelcee had shared sexy Instagram snaps from their sunny holiday, but did not post any images together or each other.

They had both captioned their posts: ‘When business meets pleasure.’

A source said at the time: ‘Christine and Chelcee hit it off straight away and love spending time with each other.

‘They have just enjoyed another sun-filled break together but also hang out a lot at home.

‘Chelcee regularly goes to Christine’s house when their schedules allow it and she’s been such a support for her.’

MailOnline contacted representatives for Christine and Chelcee at the time.

In September, Chelcee and Christine also enjoyed a whirlwind trip to Santorini and the pair also travelled to Croatia for a girls’ holiday over the summer.   

Christine and Paddy have continued to co-parent their three children – all of whom have been diagnosed with autism- amicably and are believed to be staying in the same home after announcing their split in July. 

Despite this, Christine admitted earlier this month she felt anxious at the prospect of spending time with Paddy at the National Television Awards.

However, Paddy, 49, took to Instagram to show how he spent his night in after deciding to skip the awards despite being nominated for Best Authored Documentary.

Look familiar? The pair became friends earlier this year after competing on ITV series The Games, and had both shared separate bikini-clad snaps from their sunny getaway

He shared a photo of his takeaway, penning: ‘Sometimes only a chippy tea will do! Before and after. Chips, pudding, peas and gravy.’

A source told MailOnline: ‘Paddy stayed home to look after the kids so Christine could attend the event.’

Just a day before, Christine took to Instagram and explained she’s really nervous about attending the NTAs following her split from Paddy.

A nervous Christine said: ‘I’m going to the NTAs tomorrow. I’m a nominee for the documentary me and Patrick made with our children and I’m really anxious. I’m quite nervous, just because of everything. 

‘It’s not the best situation, but you know I haven’t done anything wrong and I know what a big difference try documentary made and I know how hard the whole team worked on it.

‘So I’m going to go and try and hold my head up high and just enjoy the night.’

MailOnline exclusively revealed earlier this year that Paddy had split from Christine after 11 years of marriage, with the pair ‘living separate lives’ for months. 

In a statement confirming the split, the pair wrote: ‘We hadn’t planned on sharing this publicly until we were ready but after the lack of privacy surrounding our life personal life, we feel left with no other option but to clarify.

‘A while ago we took the difficult decision to separate but our main focus as always is to continue loving and supporting our children.

‘This was not an easy decision to make but we are moving forward as the best parents we can be for our three beautiful children.

‘We’ll always be a loving family, we still have a great relationship and still live happily in our family home together.’

They added: ‘We hope this now draws a line under anymore unwanted intrusion into our private life.’
