Denise Van Outen no longer speaks to Johnny Vaughn

Thursday April 7, 2011

They were, at one time, one of Britain's best-loved duos.

But Denise Van Outen has revealed that she is no longer on speaking terms with Johnny Vaughn.

The pair had been friends since they first co-hosted the Big Breakfast together in 1998.

And they later teamed up to front the Capital Radio breakfast show, which he now fronts with Lisa Snowdon.

During an interview this week, Denise admitted: "I haven’t seen Johnny for a while.

"I did try to speak to him since I left, but he kind of blocked me!"

Speaking of her decision to quit the radio show in 2008, she added: "At that time it was quite a difficult situation – as much as I love Johnny, it wasn’t a comfortable environment to be in.

"I think he wasn’t happy I joined in the first place – he made it quite clear. But I think at the time, in his defence, he was used to doing the show on his own."

Denise added that she didn’t hear from the 44-year-old when she got married, nor when she fell pregnant with daughter Betsy.

Asked by host Richard Bacon whether that hurt, she replied: "Yes it does, it’s a shame because we were really good friends."
