Christine McGuinness has admitted that she has only watched one movie in her entire life.
The 33-year-old TV star has revealed she’s never been able to focus fully on a movie and never understood why.
That was until she was diagnosed with autism last year.
Christine, who is married to Top Gear presenter Paddy McGuinness, was diagnosed last year after discovering her three children also all had autism.
The lovebirds are the proud parents of twins Leo and Penelope, eight, and Felicity, five.
The couple have just released a brand new podcast, Table Talk, – which is in partnership with McCain and the charity Family Fundwhere – and their aim is to raise awareness for families raising a disabled or seriously ill child.
Following the success of their recent documentary, which saw the couple lift the lid on their personal experiences as a family with three autistic children, Paddy and Christine meet six families across the UK with disabled children, to find out more about the realities of family life, the worries and wonders they face.
During the first episode of the tell-all podcast, Christine admitted that she’s only ever watched one movie – Dirty Dancing.
The blonde beauty explained that throughout her childhood she was never able to focus on an entire movie and instead watched Dirty Dancing “hundreds of times” throughout the same year.
Christine knew every line of the movie by heart, and when those close to her suggested she try watching a different movie, she felt uneasy just thinking about it.
“I used to do that when I was a teenager. I used to watch a movie over and over again. I’ve only watched one movie in my life,” Christine said.
“It’s because I can’t stay focused. But it was Dirty Dancing. I knew it word for word.”
Christine went on to explain how a kind gesture from Paddy ruined her love for the famous movie.
In a bid to give his girlfriend a spectacular show, Paddy brought Christine to see the live version of the film in the West End for her 21st birthday.
Sadly, that didn’t go over too well with the blonde beauty as she claimed her husband had ‘ruined’ the film for her forever.
“For my 21st birthday, Patrick took me to see him in London. It wasn’t the same, it wasn’t the movie. It was too different and I’ve never seen him since,” laughs she.
