CHRISTINE McGuinness has been seen for the first time since she and husband Paddy revealed they had split.
The reality TV star, 34, looked downbeat as she went out in Cheshire in a pair of denim shorts.
Christine held her phone as she walked down the street with her hair blowing in the wind.
The mother-of-three, familiar to viewers from her appearances in The Real Housewives Of Cheshire, ran errands in a pair of trainers.
On Friday the pair announced they had split after 11 years of marriage in a joint statement on Instagram.
It came as The Sun revealed Christine had accused Paddy of flirting with lookalike blonde TV star.
We told last week how she pushed to go public on her split with husband Paddy because keeping it secret left her miserable.

A source said: “Christine and Paddy spent weeks of hiding it – but she couldn’t keep it up. She was in the driving seat when it came to finally ending their marriage.”
The source added of the couple, who have three young children: “Christine and Paddy ended their marriage early in June.
"She made it very clear to those close to her that it was over. Paddy, however, wanted to put on a united front.
“He wanted to control the narrative and Christine felt like she had no option but to go along with it."
The pair each posted identical statements on social media last week where they opened up about the "difficult decision".
