Van Outen having fun with new man

Denise Van Outen has revealed she is enjoying life with her new boyfriend, Eddie Boxshall.

The 40-year-old presenter has been dating the Essex stockbroker, her first new man since she split with husband Lee Mead, and said she isn't looking to settle down yet.

"I don't want anything serious. My diary is nuts... It's typical. I've spent all these years wanting to settle down," she told The Times' Times 2 magazine.

Denise, who is mum to four-year-old daughter Betsy with Lee, told the Daily Mirror she has no plans to have more children, saying: "I don't think so. No. I've been very blessed with my little girl. She has grown up so fast.

"They grow up so quickly - she starts school in September. I can't believe it. I'm excited about her starting school," she added.

The actress, who is about to start her new one-woman stage show Some Girl I Used To Know, has had her share of heartbreak in the past. But she said she has no regrets about her love life, which includes former relationships with Jamiroquai lead singer Jay Kay, club owner Richard Traviss and actor James Lance.

Denise said: "I'm not going to mention names because pretty much all my first boyfriends sold stories on m ...

"At the time, with every man I dated, [my mother] thought, 'What's she doing with this a***hole?' I did make a lot of wrong choices. But they were the right choices at the time for me."
