Was Denise van Outen on The Masked Singer?
Most recently, Denise was one of the contestants on ITV's The Masked Singer.
The show - which saw celebrities perform in elaborate costumes in front of a live audience and judging panel, who were tasked with guessing their identities - was a huge hit back in January.
Denise was unmasked as The Fox during the semi-final, and later opened up about the experience on Loose Women.
She said: "You're all kept separate, you get separate taxis there and back."
Denise added that for each contestant there was "just one producer who comes and speaks to you, so we have no idea at all [who anyone is]."
She also added: "Not one person in my family knew. I thought it’d be fun to watch it with them so I thought it'd be funny to see if they sussed me out.
"My mum didn't know, not one person did."
Does Denise have a boyfriend?
Denise has been with Eddie Boxshall since 2014.
She was previously married to Lee Mead, but the pair split in 2013. They share a daughter, Betsy, together.
