Loose Women star Denise Welch has revealed that her relationship with her artist husband has helped her in her battle with alcohol to focus on healthier living.

Welch (58) who married Lincoln Townley (43) in 2013 after a 24-year marriage to Tim Healy, said he has been her "anchor".

She told Hello! magazine: "We were party animals, two people in a mess, when we first met.

"My marriage was in freefall and I was drinking too much. Being with Lincoln could have been the most explosive disaster, but it went the opposite way. We've been each other's anchor."

Townley added: "We encouraged one another to pursue what matters most."
