The couple leave the bash separately

Denise Van Outen and husband Lee Mead have sparked more speculation that their 6-year marriage is on the rocks.

Presenter Denise, 39, turned up to Lee‘s debut in show The West End Men at London’s Vaudeville Theatre on Monday – but the pair seemed far from loved-up.

Lee arrived at the after party on his own 15 minutes before Denise turned up with pal Christopher Parker, who played Spencer Moon in EastEnders.

The Meads put their arms around each other as they smiled for photos but ended up leaving separately.

Denise made her exit at 10pm to catch a train while Lee caught a cab 25 minutes later.

Lee and Denise – who are mum and dad to three-year-old daughter Betsy together – have previously denied that they’re splitting.

Any Dream Will Do winner Lee told his Twitter followers in April that the rumours are ‘boring’ and that they’re just ‘busy working parents’.

A spokesman for Denise declined to comment to Now Online.
