Denise Welch and Tim Healy are making their break-up look like a breeze after the Loose Women star revealed they are both friends with each other's new lovers.

The actress announced the end of her 23-year marriage to the Benidorm star live on the ITV lunchtime show last month.

She has moved on with toyboy lover Lincoln Townley, while Tim has met Joan Anderton, the cleaner of his local pub in Cheshire.

But rather than struggle to introduce their new partners to the family, the pair are taking it all in their stride.

Speaking to The Mirror, Denise said: "Tim’s moved on. The fact is, we are good friends. He’s spoken to Lincoln, I’ve spoken to Joan.

"We both knew about this situation and we’re still a family, we’ve just moved on.

"We’re trying to make it work. We’re not trying to be ‘the couple that makes splitting up work’. We’re not trying to say that. The kids are used to a physical separation. We’re still a family.”

And the actress couldn't help but boast about her younger lover, who at 39 is 14 years her junior.

She said: "I love him very much. It’s early days, we’re very happy and I love the bones of him."
