Why did Denise Van Outen’s marriage break up?

Denise Van Outen will take to Gogglebox today with her boyfriend of five years, Eddie Boxshall.

Before she met Eddie, the singer dated Jay Kay, and later married Lee Mead.

She didn’t have a happy break-up with her ex-husband, however.

Early on in her career Denise Van Outen dated Jamiroquai lead singer Jay Kay, and they were briefly engaged.

The couple split in 2001, which Ms Van Outen said was due to Mr Kay’s narcotics addiction.

She said: “I probably wasn’t very supportive. I don’t mean to be awful, but it is not my problem.

“I’ve offered before to give up my career and be there, stupidly, but the problem with anyone in that state is that there is nothing you can do to make them happy.”

Denise met Lee Mead six years later in 2007 when she was a judge on talent show Any Dream Will Do.

Mead went on to win the competition, and the couple announced their engagement in January 2009.

They were married in a ceremony in Seychelles during April 2009, and together they have a daughter, Betsy, who was born on May 1, 2010.

They split up in 2013, and their relationship received speculation from several media outlets.

However, according to Denise Van Outen, they separated because it “just wasn’t right”.

She told the Belfast Telegraph: “We stayed friends because we never fell out.

“There was no falling out. There was no massive argument, it just wasn’t right.

“He’s in a lovely relationship now with this woman Issy, who I adore, and you see them together and they’re so much more suited than we were.”

Lee Mead appeared on Lorraine in 2018 to talk about his new relationship.

He told Christine Lampard he is in a new relationship with a single mother named Issy.

He said: ”I was single for quite a while but I’m with a lovely girl called Issy now and we’ve been together for a year and a half.

“It’s nice to have found someone again and share your time together, and she has a lovely little boy who is five.”
