Denise Van Outen Hits Out At Marriage Split Claims


Denise Van Outen has hit out at claims that her marriage to West End actor Lee Mead is in trouble.

Denise - who is mum to one-year-old Betsy - said the rumours were rubbish.

The couple - who married two years ago - were said to be 'on the rocks', something Denise, 37, hotly denies, saying:

"We bicker quite a lot but it doesn't mean we are separating. My parents have bickered for 40 years and are still happily married."

The couple got together when Denise was judging the BBC1 show Any Dream Will Do in 2007. They tied the knot in the Seychelles in April 2009, and their little girl was born in May, 2010.

Denise was embroiled in a row last year with former EastEnders actress Natalie Cassidy over her decision to return to work after Betsy's birth.
