Denise Welch 'Moves Out Of Home Shared With Fiancé Lincoln Townley'

They were due to tie the knot in just a few months time, but it seems all is not well between Denise Welch and her toyboy fiancé Lincoln Townley.

The 'Loose Women' star has apparently moved out of his South London home amid reports they are 'spending time apart'.

Denise was photographed packing her belongings into the back of a car over the weekend, and it is now thought she is staying in a hotel.

Sources told The Mirror the pair have been having furious bust-ups in recent weeks, with their 14-year age gap said to be to blame.

However, the couple - who met after Denise split with husband of 24 years Tim Healy - are said to be determined to work out their differences, and hope that the time apart will help them heal their relationship.

The news comes just a week after the couple were spotted arguing in the street when Denise was seen going through her fiancé's phone outside a café.

An onlooker told The Sun: "It looked like she wasn’t very happy about something on his phone. She threw it on the table and stormed off. He ran after her but she wasn’t having any of it."

The pair's 220 wedding guests are also reported to be facing losing up to £1000 each if their July wedding is cancelled.

Guests have booked up a five-star hotel in the Algarve for the ceremony, and could lose money spent on flights and accommodation if Denise and Lincoln's temporary split proves more permanent.

A source told The Mirror: "A lot of effort has gone into the planning of this wedding and the couple’s guests have already forked out for flights and accommodation.

"Denise is adamant that the show will go on and she doesn't want to let anyone down."

Earlier this year, Lincoln was rushed to hospital with a suspected heart attack.
