Van Outen: My marriage is fine

Denise Van Outen has dismissed rumours that her marriage to Lee Mead is going through a rough patch

Denise Van Outen has dismissed speculation that her marriage is in trouble.

The star, 37, said that stories that she and West End star Lee Mead, 29, were having a "rough patch" were "total rubbish" and "ridiculous" although "very amusing".

Denise, a judge on Dermot O'Leary's new ITV1 show The Marriage Ref, tweeted: "If I say we bicker as a couple, it doesn't mean we are separating. My parents have bickered for 40 years ... still happily married."

The couple got together after meeting on BBC One reality show Any Dream Will Do - which Lee won and Denise judged.

They married in 2009 and their daughter Betsy was born in May last year.

Denise sparked speculation after admitting: "We bicker quite a lot. We have a one-year-old. For the first few months there was a lot of sleep deprivation and we just argued over silly things. "
