Tonight, Dancing on Ice 2021 is set to begin on ITV.
Ahead of the competition, it was announced that Denise, 46, had been rushed to hospital after dislocating her shoulder due to a fall during rehearsals.
As fans of the show wait in eager anticipation to see what she has in store on the ice, here is a reminder of who Denise is currently in a relationship with and who she was previously married to.
Who was Denise married to?
In 2007, Denise was a judge on BBC talent competition Any Dream Will Do, a show that sought a new lead for the West End production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
The series was won by Lee Mead, who performed as Joseph for two years before going on to star in Wicked, Legally Blonde and TV series including Holby City.

Denise and Lee began dating shortly after the show ended, eventually tying the knot in 2009.
The couple were divorced four years later in 2013, with a joint statement released at the time stating: ‘Following continued speculation, Denise Van Outen and Lee Mead are sad to confirm they have decided to separate.’
Do Denise and Lee have children?
In 2010, Denise and Lee’s daughter, Betsy, was born.
When the news of their divorce was announced, the statement they released stressed that the ‘couple remain the best of friends, with their daughter Betsy as their No. 1 priority’.
Who is Denise currently in a relationship with?
Since 2014, Denise has been in a relationship with Eddie Boxshall, 46, a commodities trader from Essex.

Ahead of the launch of Dancing on Ice 2021, Eddie said on Instagram that he’s ‘so proud of Denise who had NEVER ice skated before agreeing to appear on this wonderful show’.

From 1998, Denise was in a relationship with Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay.
While the couple became engaged, they broke up in 2001.
It’s said that Jamiroquai’s 2001 album A Funk Odyssey took inspiration from Jay’s relationship with Denise, with the song Little L making reference to their break-up.
Dancing on Ice launches tonight at 6pm on ITV.
