Gogglebox celebrity fans were shocked when Denise Van Outen announced her split from longtime partner Eddie Boxhall on Instagram.

The seemingly unbreakable couple announced they were leaving after what she called “months of speculation.”

Since then, the actress has released a book titled Part of Me: From Basildon to Broadway and Back, published in February 2022, in which she talked about her life.

In her memoir, Denise revealed the reason for the breakup after being silent about it since January.

She claimed to have caught Eddie cheating with several women after discovering a series of flirtatious messages and photos on his phone.

The autobiography also gave her the opportunity to get over the heartache she experienced when her relationship with Eddie ended.

“This is the worst. It’s terrible,” recalled Denise, speaking today on the Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place podcast.

Denise mentioned that she thinks her fans deserve to know the truth as she worked with her former partner in front of the public.

“The only reason I put it there (the book) was because I felt I had to talk about it, because we worked together on television, so people had an interest,” she said.

But things got agonizing for the presenter, as her book was due out the same week she caught Eddie cheating.

“I thought you should keep this book, I can’t release it. But it was terrible, and the heartache is terrible, and it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from,” she said.

“The pain is just as deep and a lot of people have reached out to me on social media, women and men who have been through it.

“Those nights when I just sit on the patio at 3/4 in the morning feeling empty and devastated and thinking I don’t know how I’m going to get through the next week because I feel so overwhelmed enough, it’s terrible.”

“Painfully. I couldn’t breathe, I called one of my friends one night and I felt like someone was sitting on my chest, literally couldn’t breathe, you get this knot in your stomach and it won’t go away, and you’re like, When will this feeling leave me?

But living in the spotlight has not only increased the pressure on Denise, it has also pushed her to move forward with her life.

“You can’t work, and because you’re in the public eye, you also just want to get through it, and you want to be seen to be getting through it.”

Denise detailed Eddie’s affair in her book, writing, “Among the photos was a screenshot of… a woman’s breasts—and they definitely weren’t mine!”

Text messaging, she recalled, also “raised the alarm.”

Denise was introduced to Eddie during a 2014 blind date arranged by host Zoe Hardman.

The couple hit it off and were together shortly after Denise’s divorce with her ex-husband, West End star Lee Mead.

While Denise was used to being the center of attention, Eddie did not get involved in show business, instead working as a commodities trader.

Although she decided to let the public know about the consequences of their breakup, Eddie initially chose to remain silent.

However, fans have noticed cryptic posts online that include a photo of a white banner that says “Don’t believe everything you read.”

But in an exclusive interview with Kristen Bell Tattoos on Sunday, May 2022, Eddie spoke about the relationship and its breakup.
