The ex of TV’s Denise Van Outen, Eddie Boxshall, seemingly took a dig at the TV star following her recent break-up with boyfriend Jimmy Barba.

Denise and Eddie were previously engaged but pulled the plug on their relationship in January 2022. It was said at the time that Denise had caught Eddie messaging other women behind her back.

Following their split, the former Big Breakfast host formed a relationship with property developer Jimmy Barba. However, after 18 months, their split was announced earlier this week.

What has Denise Van Outen said about Eddie Boxshall split?

In her autobiography, A Bit Of Me, Denise recalled finding photos of women’s breasts in the deleted folder of their home iPad.

“There were also Instagram messages alluding to phone sex with a third woman,” she said. “Her name was Tracy and she’d apparently spoken to Eddie over FT and text for a long period.

“They’d never met in person, but she said the conversations had become sexual in nature reasonably quickly.”
