Panelist misses a show
Denise Welch missed her Loose Women slot yesterday following a 10-hour party with Dancing On Ice pals.
Former Corrie star Denise, 52, watched from the sidelines on Sunday night at Shepperton Studios before joining the post-show celebrations.
‘Denise went out with the cast and crew from Dancing
for a quick drink. But the excitement of the first-night show proved too
much and nine hours later she was propping up the bar,’ reveals a source.
Denise texted co-host Coleen Nolan to ask her to cover for her before calling in sick next day, which didn’t go down too well with ITV bosses.
‘She was very apologetic,’ the insider tells the Daily Mirror.
In her recent autobiography, Pulling Myself Together, Denise talks about her battles with booze and drugs, admitting to drunken kisses with
other women and using cocaine during Coronation Street film shoots.
She is set to make her own Dancing On Ice debut this weekend.
