DENISE Van Outen has revealed she is moving in with her boyfriend Eddie Boxshall in the new year.
The 43-year-old and Eddie have been dating for three years and Denise revealed on today's Loose Women that they were taking the next step in their relationship in 2018.
She said: "I've been househunting with Eddie, and we've found a place we're going to move into in 2018.
"I remember in January thinking 'I need to make these changes' and a friend actually said it to me, he said 'You can talk about things and before you know it you've been talking about things for five years.'
"So I decided to take the bull by the horns and just do it.
"Look for a place to live with Eddie and look for new schools and just did everything and it's all worked out really well.
"But it's a bit of a gamble and I'm not really a great one for change but it has worked out well."
Andrea McLean, 48, also took the opportunity to reflect on her year, which started badly but ended in the best possible way.
She said: "Obviously last year I had the hysterectomy and then there were a few complications health-wise, where they discovered something when they were in there.
"So I only got the all-clear from that at the start of the year so it started quite dark but what it did was triggered something in my head and thought 'you have to seize the day as you don't know how long you have'.
"Little did I know, Nick would also be thinking the seize the day and I ended the year being married! "Which I didn't know was going to happen which was amazing, it was a complete surprise!
"It started off quite sad and scared and it's ended up everything is brilliant and I couldn't be happier."
To celebrate the year ending on a high for much of the panel, they treated viewers to a rousing Christmas medley with many of the panellists featuring in sexy Santa costumes.
Coleen Nolan started things off against a black background singing Santa Baby before the shot returned to the studio to see them all lined up with Stacey Solomon and Denise singing Jingle Bell Rock.
As the two women took it in turns to sing, the rest of the panellists did a little dance routine in the background.
