Elen Rivas starts Christmas Twitter feud with Christine Bleakley. Uh-oh.

It seems the spirit of joy and goodwill hasn't extended to all in celebville this Christmas, as Elen Rivas has launched a Twitter attack on her ex Frank Lampard and his fiancée Christine Bleakley. Oh dear.

Former couple Frank and Elen had two children together, Luna, six, and Isla, four before splitting in November 2008. Christine and Frank got engaged in the summer.

Former WAG Elen tweeted her annoyance at her England footballer ex Frank on Christmas Eve: "Sad a father would deliberately stop his children from speaking to their mother over Christmas...:("

She added: "You would have thought the girlfriend would have a little maternal understanding..;("

New Dancing on Ice co-host Christine did make one comment about Elen's tweets, in response to her friend's tweet: "Looks like someone is up to their old tricks again, telling lies!! Have an amazing Xmas @clbleakley with frank & the girls! C u nxt wk xxxx"

Christine tweeted: "thanks J. I'd happily put the record straight but really don't think twitter is a place to do it when children are involved x"
