Denise Welch wants to do more acting.

The Loose Women and former Coronation Street star has recently concentrated her efforts on reality TV, on Dancing On Ice and Celebrity Big Brother.

She said: "It would take me five years in a drama to make what I did on Celebrity Big Brother, but I do want to concentrate on doing more acting."

Denise, who has also appeared in Waterloo Road, Down To Earth and Soldier, Soldier, said she didn't have any regrets about Celebrity Big Brother, despite clashing with US actor Michael Madsen.

"I try not to regret anything. I don't regret it because I found out a lot about myself, some things I liked, some things I didn't," she said.

"I found out that I actually like quite a lot of things about myself. I never thought I was a hypocrite or a bully and I reaffirmed that with myself, because I was in there with people who were both," she said.

Denise, who has just published a new book, said she doesn't regret exposing her breasts in a hot tub on the show.

"I can't understand the furore that it caused. I wouldn't do it again and we were all tipsy. If I'd have been b****y, nasty and two-faced, that's what I would have regretted," she said.

:: Starting Over by Denise Welch is published by Sidgwick & Jackson, priced £18.99. Available September 13.

Taurus:

A home improvement project will be stalled or called off altogether. The situation is frustrating, but it can't be helped. Instead of dwelling on your disappointment, turn your attention to more rewarding pursuits. Working on an unusual creative project fills you with excitement. Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
