It comes after Denise revealed that Eddie had no idea he’d be spending the evening with her on their first blind date.

The former Big Breakfast presenter discussed their humorous first meeting on Steph’s Packed Lunches on Channel 4, admitting that her fiancé thought it was a joke when the restaurant’s host dropped that he was going to sit down with Denise.

She told host Steph McGovern, “When I first met Eddie, I went on a blind date. He didn’t know it was me, which was pretty funny.

“I was in a bar and he showed up and said, ‘I’m here to meet a Denise,’ he knew my name.

The man said, ‘Denise Van Outen’ and he said, ‘No, it’s not her’ as if he thought it was a joke. Then of course he went: “It’s you!”‘

She also revealed that the secret ingredient to their successful first date was margaritas, and lots of them.

Denise added: ‘I have the receipt from our first date, I have kept it. It was May 22nd and it was literally margarita, margarita, margarita, margarita, it has about 20 margaritas on it.

“At one point, you know when you’re drunk and we’ve gone, ‘we really need to eat something,’ we ordered the most random—just a bowl of chipolatas! Then it goes back to margarita, margarita, margarita…’

Denise and Eddie decided to tame the coronavirus storm and postpone their long-awaited wedding so they can celebrate a grand celebration with their loved ones.

The TV personality said she likes to jump back in line for the wedding to get other couples to exchange their vows first, as she predicts a “huge backlog” due to the pandemic.

Speak with The sun last month she said: ‘We are not engaged, but we are preparing to get married. It’s definitely going to happen, but we’re in no rush.

“We don’t want a small wedding. We want a large group of people and a large party without restrictions.
