TV presenter Denise Van Outen has revealed that she made the “difficult decision” to split from her fiance Eddie Boxshall, after a seven-year-long relationship.

The 47-year-old shared a heartfelt post on Instagram announcing the news, adding that she would “always treasure the good times” she had with her former partner.

Van Outen had previously said they had planned to get married once COVID restrictions had been lifted.

Sharing a picture of herself walking two dogs along a beach, she wrote: “Over the past couple of months, there has been much speculation regarding my relationship with Eddie.

“It saddens me to confirm that we are no longer a couple.

“I had to make the difficult decision not to continue in our relationship.

“I will always treasure the good times we spent together, and the memories made.
