Celebrity Big Brother winner and Loose Woman Denise Welch has admitted that her new boyfriend is like a "gay best friend". The saucy star, who started going out with Lincoln Townley after her marriage to Tim Healy broke down, did a joint interview with her new beau for Bella magazine. As you do.
When asked if she thinks he is "the one", she said: "Yeah I do, definitely. But I'm so terrified of tempting fate. "We have the same sense of humour. It's like having a gay best friend who I really fancy."
We think she means she just gets on really well with her toyboy lover, who is 14 years younger than her (it's like Caroline and Harry all over again!) Lincoln gushed about his girlfriend, too, describing the first time they met: "I found her very attractive. We met in a nightclub at one of my parties.
"At the end of last year we looked at being together."
Welch said that she's into a bit of rough, a man who's experienced the wilder side of life: "I'm not interested in men who haven't had a drink, haven't had a wild time. But I'm not going to put myself in a position where I'm involved in a murky world."
Though this might be all you'd ever want to know about Denise Welch, there's more to come. She's releasing her autobiography in September, which she is writing in-between performances of Steel Magnolias. So, although she's quitting Loose Women, there's plenty more of Denise to go around!
