Denise told The Sunday Mirror: "Yes, I've quit. I was hurt that the changes were made and kept a secret, and that the person responsible for the decisions hadn't come and talked to me about it.

"Every show needs a shake-up. But the way the show's going, I've felt that my wings have been clipped. I feel the way the show is going is losing the fun of it."

Just this week it was announced that former 'Loose Women' stars Kaye Adams and Coleen Nolan would be rejoining the show next summer.
