Denise Van Outen ‘won’t sit around moping’ after Eddie Boxshall split and will ‘date again’

Denise Van Outen confirmed she and her fiance Eddie Boxshall were no longer together last week after reports emerged that her ex-partner was allegedly found "messaging other women".

Since then, we have seen the star throw herself back into work by appearing on Steph's Packed Lunch on Monday, and sources tell OK! Denise, 47, wants to put it all behind her now.

The source said of Denise, who was in a relationship with Eddie for seven years: "She actually feels ready to get back out there on the dating scene, she’s wasting no time.

"She doesn’t want to sit around moping."

OK! approached Denise Van Outen's representative for comment.

When it was reported the pair had separated, a source told The Sun: "Denise is both ­furiously angry and utterly heartbroken.

"It’s the very last thing she expected to happen after she had been so happy with Eddie."

The source continued: "She thought this was forever.

"But while she has been out at work he’s been sat in her home betraying her trust."

While Gogglebox star Eddie didn't officially propose to mum of one Denise, it was reported they had been speaking about marrying each other last year before postponing due to Covid-19.

"There’s never been an engagement, we just said we would like to get married,” she previously said.

“We’re like a married couple anyway.”

Back in October, the former The Only Way Is Essex voiceover fave spoke out about dealing with trolls and her experiences with imposter syndrome during an interview with new!.

But while it would have been an opportunity to talk wedding plans, Denise only opened up about their date nights and skirted around the subject.

The star also revealed in the past: "I said, 'Let's not worry about getting engaged.

"We'll just plan a day and have close friends and family there when things reopen.'"

Denise shares her 11-year-old daughter, Betsy, with her ex-husband, West End star Lee Mead.
