Denise Van Outen has been with boyfriend Eddie Boxshall for the long-term. But are they married and how did they meet?
Denise Van Outen, 46, and boyfriend Eddie Boxshall were hilarious on Celebrity Gogglebox last year and they're back on the sofa again for the 2021 series.
The TV host will be sharing the sofa once again with boyfriend Eddie, but are they married and how did they meet?
Here are all the details on Denise's long-term relationship...
No, Denise Van Outen and partner Eddie are not married but Denise has tied the knot before.
From 2009 to 2013, she was married to Lee Mead, who won BBC’s Any Dream Will Do show in 2007. The pair have a daughter together, named Betsy, who was born in 2010.
Denise and Eddie were set up on a blind date by presenter Zoe Hardman in 2014.
The TV star told Hello magazine: “Zoe knew Eddie through an ex-boyfriend and felt sure we’d hit it off.
“She kept telling me that he was just like me and she was spot on. When she played matchmaker and organised a blind date for us, I was very excited.
“I’m a bit old fashioned about dating and have never been on Tinder or anything like that. When I found myself single and just about to turn 40, I didn’t want to be on my mobile, swiping left and all that business."
She continued: "Constantly talking on a phone and messaging each other is a waste of time; you might as well go and meet that person and you’ll know within the first half hour if it will work or not.
"With Eddie I knew within ten minutes - we just clicked.”
And their chemistry is clear on-screen, with the pair constantly making each other laugh while they filmed Celebrity Gogglebox last year.
