Denise Van Outen is set to make her long awaited return to our television screens as she has been named the host of new channel five show, OK! TV.
The star, who once fronted the Big Breakfast, has been working on the stage musical, Legally Blonde in London, as well as being a judge on BBC One musical show, ‘Any Dream Will Do’.
Van Outen has also taken time out to have a baby, with Betsy born last year. The star actually ended up having a war of words with Natalie Cassidy over the speed at which she returned to work.
The new host will work alongside relatively unknown presenter, Matt Johnson, on a show that promised to bring, “big name interviews, features from the worlds of celebrity, music and fashion, plus gossip and plenty of banter”
Matt Johnson is famous for being one time boyfriend of One Show presenter Alex Jones, as well as a few cameo appearances on This Morning on ITV, the last one in which he appeared starkers.
Speaking about her new role, Denise said, “I have a huge appetite for all things showbiz so this show is right up my street. I’m really looking forward to working with Matt too and we can’t wait to show the viewers what we’ve got in store.”
The launch of an OK! magazine spin-off on the station had been widely rumoured sincemedia mogul, Richard Desmond, took over Channel 5 last year. He also owns the Express, Star and OK! Magazine.
