TV STAR Denise van Outen has opened up on her “terrible” blind date with a “very scruffy” man.
Denise, 48, discussed some of the worse dates she’d been on and admitted and this one came up trumps.
The blonde beauty was a well known face on screens at the time of her blind date, and was surprised to see the man she was meeting had put no effort into his outfit.
Chatting to The Sun, Denise explained: “I told my friend Alfie, if this goes really badly I’ll give you the nod to get in touch with me.
“So then I go on this dinner date with this guy, and I’d made such an effort to get dressed up and I wanted to look and feel nice.

“I should’ve seen the red flags anyway because he asked me to book the restaurant and I didn’t know where to go. So I thought ok I’ll book it but any sensible person would look and see what the restaurant is like and see what the dress code is.”
When she met the man on her blind date, Denise was shocked to see he’d opted for a very “scruffy” outfit.
She continued: “I like to get my heels on and dress up, but he turned up so scruffy. He came like he’d just been sat in front of the telly in a grandad cardigan and just looked so scruffy.
“At this point I was on the TV, and he turned up scruffy and I just said why did you not make any effort.
“But anyway my mate Alfie who had promised he’d get me out of it, I sent him a message and I waited and he didn’t get back to me. He said the next day that he fell asleep really early and so he couldn’t save me.”
The mum-of-one is now loved-up with boyfriend Jimmy, after they hit it off and went public in June 2022 at the 12th annual Grand Prix Ball in London, after keeping their relationship secret for several months.

And Denise said she’d “marry again,” adding: “For me, it’s a bit too early for anything like that you know. But I’d never rule out marrying again and I’ve always said that, if it feels right, but things are really heading in the right direction so we’ll wait and see.”
