The star ended her relationship with commodities trader Eddie in January this year after discovering unfaithful reports.
She went public in July with her property developer boyfriend Jimmy, and the pair have since enjoyed their first holiday together after a flight to Marbella.
Denise explained that she didn’t want to go public until the relationship was “solid,” so instead the couple stayed in and talked for hours.

She couldn’t believe they had never met before because they have friends in common, but she admitted that now was the right time for their paths to finally cross.
While it’s early days for Denise and her new boyfriend, friends say they might plan to move in together once she’s “fallen hard and fast” for Jimmy.
And Denise’s best friend Duncan James said she has “her sparkle back” after finding love again following her divorce from Eddie.
