The TV presenter rubbishes reports that she's heading for divorce

Denise Van Outen has denied that her marriage to Lee Mead is in trouble.

It was speculated at the weekend that Denise, 38, and Lee, 31, may be about to split after she headed off on a girlie holiday to watch the Dubai World Cup horse race.

Just 24 hours after she returned to the UK, Lee headed off to America – but Denise insists that they’re not deliberately spending time away from each other.

Denise says the stories are completely untrue,’ Denise‘s spokesperson tells Mail Online.

Denise and Lee are very much still together. Lee is currently away in LA working.’

The couple met when Denise judged talent show Any Dream Will Do in 2007 – which Lee was a contestant on – and they married two years later.

Lee took to Twitter this week to tell his fans that the only reason he and Denise aren’t seen together more often is because they’re juggling their careers with looking after daughter Betsy, 2.

‘Boring. – We’re busy working parents!!’ Tweeted Lee.
