Denise Van Outen, 45, and her beau Eddie Boxshall sat down to watch First Dates on Celebrity Gogglebox tonight and soon started reminiscing about their first date. “I remember when I got there I thought, it’s a blind date, I don’t know what he looks like,” she said. “So, I messaged Zoe and I said, ‘I need some indication because I don’t know what I’m looking for.’” Turning to his partner, Eddie sounded surprised as he asked: “So, you did get a photograph sent to you?”
“Yeah, but literally as I got there,” she explained. “But it was just the one of you and your daughter.
“It was so old and I thought, cor, he’s well fit!” she exclaimed. “And then you walked in and you was all grey and that and I thought, oh, he’s quite old.”
Looking stunned, he lightheartedly hit back: “How does this turn out to be the best date then?”
“Dunno, because I saw past that and I saw your personality,” Denise quipped mischievously.
“After about, what? Five—” he began, before the actress and presenter interjected, laughing: “Martinis.”
