Dancing on Ice star Denise van Outen is gearing up to tie the knot with her partner of seven years, Eddie Boxshall.

In a new interview with The Sun, the 46-year-old opened up on their big plans: "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.

"So it's a joint decision. There is no proposal. We're doing it the modern way."

Van Outen went on: "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."

After the past 13 months of stress and uncertainty, we don't blame them for keeping it simple.
