Up until now, Denise and Lee have both denied rumours their marriage was in trouble after rarely being spotted together.

The pair fell in love when Lee was a contestant on Any Dream Will Do in 2007, which Denise was judging.

They went on to marry in the Seychelles in 2009 and welcomed daughter Betsy a year later, who is now three.
