Loose Women presenter Denise Welch will divorce her actor husband Tim Healy.

The 53-year-old Celebrity Big Brother winner revealed her marriage was over live on the ITV chatshow following increased speculation that she was cheating on her husband with party planner Lincoln Townley.

She insisted her marriage was "fine" just days ago and the couple appeared to be putting on a united front. Their marriage had been hit by speculation that she had had two extramarital affairs with toyboys.

According to reports she spent the night with Townley in a posh London hotel after filming an episode of Loose Women.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: "They looked like any other couple. It was busy in the bar but they were not being discreet at all, which was surprising after she said everything was okay with her husband Tim.

"She didn't seem to care who saw them and what people thought about her being with him.

"She's clearly a torn woman and finding it all very difficult."
