Loose Women star and her ex have both moved on

Denise Welch and estranged husband Tim Healy are on good terms despite their recent split.

The Loose Women panellist is now living with 39-year-old toy boy Lincoln Townley, while actor Tim has found love again with cleaner Joan Anderton – but the former couple remain close.

Tim‘s moved on,’ says Denise, 53.

‘The fact is, we are good friends. He’s spoken to Lincoln, I’ve spoken to Joan.

‘We both knew about this situation and we’re still a family, we’ve just moved on.’

Denise and Tim, 60, who are parents to Matt, 22, and Louis, 10, ended their relationship last year but only made their split public last month.

‘We’re trying to make it work,’ Denise tells the Daily Mirror.

‘We’re not trying to be “the couple that

makes splitting up work”.

‘We’re not trying to say that. The kids are

used to a physical separation. We’re still a family.’
