There have been reports about Frank Lampard going into acting after retiring from football, and the Chelsea legend who appeared with his wife Christine on ITV show Loose Women, distanced himself from those rumours.

The 38-year-old who called time on his way playing career early this year, has admitted that he won’t be the next James Bond.

“There’s certainly rumours,” said Frank Lampard. “Acting’s not for me. I would love to get involved – I’m keeping options open, but maybe like documentary stuff, something grittier, maybe sport, ‘life-y’ stuff.

“But in terms of the next James Bond, nowhere near!’

Appearing on the show alongside his wife Christine, the couple admitted they are enjoying spending more quality time together now his playing days are over.

“We’re loving it,” said Frank.

“We are like ‘Let’s enjoy this until something takes your (Frank’s)’ time,” added Christine.
