Denise Van Outen is a breath of fresh air in pale green trousers... as she steps out with a smile

She was recently forced to deny her marriage to Lee Mead was on the rocks and rumours that she would be joining EastEnders were swiftly shut down this week.

But despite whatever may be going on in her life Denise Van Outen looked relaxed and happy on Saturday. 

Looking like she was ready for summer the 38-year-old stepped out smiling in her pale green trousers.

She teamed the slim fit trousers which showed off her lean legs with a white T-shirt and a necklace with a large bird pendant on it.

 

Over the top she wore a leather coat with fur trim, while on her feet she wore a pair of strappy flat sandals.

Her long blonde hair was worn loose and she completed the look with her favourite trendy black shades.

It looked as if the radio star was returning from a shopping trip as she carried a large bag from high street store Zara with her. 

Earlier this week the EastEnders press team took to Twitter to deny reports that she would be joining the cast as the new landlady of the Queen Vic. 

They wrote: ‘There is absolutely no truth whatsoever in today's reports that #EastEnders is in talks with Denise Van Outen with a view to casting her.’

Initial rumours, which reached fever pitch on Wednesday evening, suggested that the star- who has three-year-old daughter Betsy with husband Lee Mead - had been in a string of secret meetings with soap bosses.

Reports suggested that programme chiefs saw her as a ‘new, young and fresh’ Peggy Mitchell, the former Queen Vic landlady and Walford matriarch who was played by Barbara Windsor.

Denise - who has been asked to appear on the soap twice before - has previously admitted she would love to join the BBC show.

But while it was clearly not to be this time, Denise certainly didn’t look too concerned about it either way as she went about her business.

I think she would have made a good landlady in East Enders.

Here come the DVO hating comments. For some reason the DM can't stop posting articles about her, it's almost like you want her marriage to fail so you have something to write about and some people who don't like her can post even nastier comments.

She is not an actress, she started out on radio as a not so good side kick. Now she is an actress... not sure too many awards have been award to Den.

I'm so glad that the infamous 'Daily Mail Reporter' has described what she was wearing, all her accessories, and even what she was carrying and how her hair was worn, as I couldn't tell from the pictures at all.

She never seems to have her child with her, never mind her husband! Met her once, horrid woman.
