Denise and Eddie were fan favorites on Celebrity Gogglebox and since their split, there have been rumors and reports about Eddie cheating on Denise.
While these claims have been neither been confirmed nor denied by Denise or Eddie, the pair who were meant to get married later this year, have admitted to going to couples therapy together.
Eddie has now also been dropped by Gogglebox and Denise’s friend Kimberley Walsh is expected to be his replacement having appeared on the show before.
Denise has one daughter, 11-year-old Betsy, from her previous marriage to West End star Lee Mead who she met while she was a judge on the show Any Dream Will Do.
Lee appeared on the show to compete to be Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph for his musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
While Lee went on to win the show and became Joseph, he and Denise began dating in 2007 and married in the Seychelles at the five-star Labriz Silhouette Resort in 2009.
In 2010 Denise gave birth to their only child Betsy and the couple then split in 2013, with their busy work schedules clashing credited as the reason for the split.
At the time Denise was competing in Strictly Come Dancing and publicly said that the full-on rehearsal and showtime were putting pressure on her relationship.
From 1998 to 2002 Denise dated another famous face, Jay Kay the lead singer of the funk and acid jazz band Jamiroquai, and the couple were engaged before their split.
The band’s album A Funk Odyssey is mostly about their breakup and the album went on to be the peak of the band’s international success.
The TV star recently had her house broken into and hinted that the burglars stole a sex toy from her underwear draw.
Using social media to know when her Essex home would be empty burglars “went through” her knickers and took a very personal item.
Speaking on Steph’s Packed Lunch she said: “The worst part for me after that burglary was they took random things, but they also went through my knicker drawer…So I just know that they have taken… I can’t say what they took, but you can imagine.”
Denise shot to fame when she appeared on Channel 4’s The Big Breakfast and then had a successful career performing on stage in productions including Chicago and Tell Me on a Sunday.
In 2015 she joined the EastEnders cast and has presented talent shows such as Who Dares, Sings! with Ben Shephard and ITV morning shows including This Morning and Loose Women.
Since 2010 she has narrated the popular reality TV show The Only Way Is Essex and recently she appeared on The Masked Singer in 2020 and Dancing On Ice in 2021.
Denise is set to continue to star on Celebrity Gogglebox and will be starring as a judge on The Masked Singer 2022 tour.
Richard Osman’s House of Games continues on Monday, February, 7 at 6pm on BBC Two.
