Denise Van Outen all smiles post split from husband Lee
29 AUGUST 2013Denise van Outen looks like she is her smiley self once again, a month after the news broke that she split from her husband of four years, Lee Mead.
The TV and radio presenter was seen beaming as she held her daughter Betsy at The Little Mermaid Blu-Ray film premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Thursday.
Wearing a cream dress with floral print that came just short of the knee and flat leopard-print sandals, a tanned and toned Denise looked fantastic. She accessorised with a statement necklace and kept her blonde locks natural and wavy.
Three-year-old Betsy looked adorable in a cute patterned dress with pink sash, and matched her mum with a cream headband. She also beamed for the Disney day of fun, holding her mum's hand and sitting happily in her arms.
Denise, 39, seems to be back on form following the sad news that her marriage with actor husband Lee has come to an end. Since the news broke at the end of July, the Magic FM DJ had been looking unusually subdued.
"They're going their separate ways," an insider told The Sun at the time. "It's very sad but they have grown apart and fallen out of love."
Denise and Lee, 32, cited their busy work schedules as a reason for their split, according to newspaper.
But the unassuming adventurer has a big project on the horizon to take her mind off her marriage.
She exclusively told HELLO! Magazine that, having conquered Kilimanjaro, reached the summit of Machu Picchu, crossed India on a bicycle, she is preparing to scale the Great Wall of China for her next charity mission.
The mum-of-one made a long standing promise to best friend Tamara Edwards and her family that she would tackle the wall with them to raise money for the Royal Marsden Hospital where Tamara's dad Michael passed away from leukemia last year.
The trip was Denise's idea after Michael's heartbroken wife Christine told her she was devastated that the childhood sweethearts had never managed to make their dream trip to the Great Wall of China together.
