Christine McGuinness told fans her head felt like it was going to “explode” as she opened up about the pressures of getting ready for Christmas.

The star – whose three children with husband Paddy McGuinness are all on the autistic spectrum – posted a video on her Instagram Story saying that she had left her festive shopping too late and that everything was getting to be “a bit much”.

The clip, which has now disappeared, showed Christine in the gym, and she told her followers she had been waiting to work out all day.

“It's been one of them days today where I think if I could have just got in to my car and f***** off, I'd have been gone,” she said.

“I feel like there is just no escape from real life at the minute. I feel like my head’s about to explode. Everything is just all a bit much.”

The 33-year-old went on: “It's my own fault. I hate shopping. I hate it and I do it every single year. I'm not one of these girls that's like, 'Hiya let's go shopping'.

"I really f****** hate it.

"So I have left it to the last minute and now I feel that everyone is p***** off with me because I haven't organised Christmas."

The star said she was enjoying a bit of quiet time all alone in the gym.

“Everyone's asleep and I feel like this is freedom,” she said.
