Denise Van Outen and Lee Mead to tie the knot
Denise Van Outen has the sound of wedding bells ringing in her ear as boyfriend Lee Mead just popped the question – and she said yes.
Lee, 27, asked the Basildon-born TV presenter to marry him last week, before whisking her off on holiday to St. Lucia.
Denise, 34, instantly fancied Lee when she first met him while presenting the talent show Any Dream Will Do.
Lee went on to win the programme, and landed the lead role in the West End prduction of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
A friend of the couple told The Sun: ‘Denise and Lee are so happy.
‘They are both traditional people and it was a traditional proposal as Lee went down on one knee and then took Denise to St Lucia.
‘Of course Denise said “yes” straight away! Lee bought a ring that Denise says is beautiful.’
The lovebirds have just moved into a flash new pad in Kent, which they will be able to make the most of when Lee finishes his Joseph stint this month.
Denise was once engaged to Jay Kay, from the band Jamiroquai, whom she dated from 1998 to 2001.
She then dated club owner Richard Traviss for three years until 2004.
Looks like Denise’s dating days are now over.
