The Coronavirus pandemic has forced many to re-think their plans, and one person who has had to do just that was Denise Van Outen.

The blonde beauty, who ended her 23 year-long fued with Johnny Vaughan, admitted she was planning on proposing to other half Eddie Boxshall but Covid put her dampener on her plans.

The 46 year old told The Sun: "I was going to propose last leap year, but we went into lockdown so it was impossible to do it properly. It didn't feel right."

The couple have now decided not to do any proposals or engagements, and just go ahead with actually getting married.

She continued: "So it's a joint decision. There is no proposal. We're doing it the modern way. We're in our forties, I've been married before.

"For a lot of women the dream is the big rock on the finger. I'm the opposite of that. I just want the commitment between two people.

"I don't need to wear a diamond ring to feel that someone loves me. I said to him we'll get bands when we marry. It won't be a massive, lavish wedding," Denise revealed.

The television personality also ruled out having any more children and said she doesn't have any regrets about it.

"Two or three years ago we did talk about trying to have children. But it never happened and I don't have any regrets," she explained.

Denise is mum to 10 year old daughter Betsy from her previous relationship with ex Lee Mead, and is also stepmum to Eddie's daughter Leah, 21.

The couple began dating in July 2014 after being introduced by a mutual friend and moved in together in 2019.

The actress also told the publication that she has become more confident as she's got older and enjoys looking good.

Denise, who opened up about her horrific Dancing On Ice injury, continued: "I try to embrace my femininity, it's fun.

"In another ten years I won't be doing photoshoots, so I'm making the most of it now.

"Looking good has become more of a focus because I am older, I do like to get dressed up and glam."
