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. "
