    Denise van Outen has reportedly split from her boyfriend Jimmy Barba after 18 months of dating.

    The beloved presenter, 49, first announced she was dating the property developer, 55, last summer. Since then, the pair had gone from strength to strength but after a year and a half together, they have decided to go their separate ways.

    Denise has since told The Sun: "We have decided to part ways but we remain great friends and out families and children are still in touch." Despite their break-up, Denise and Jimmy still follow each other on social media and have yet to delete their loved-up snaps on their profiles.

    Their romance came just one year following her messy break-up with her cheating ex-Eddie Boxshall. The mum-of-one ended her relationship with the commodities trader back in January 2022 after she discovered a series of unfaithful messages to other women on his phone.

    Eddie moved out of Denise's home shortly after the news of their shocking split hit the headlines and is now thought to be staying with friends. Six months later, the blonde bombshell went public with Jimmy.

    It is understood the couple initially got together after All Saints singer Shaznay Lewis introduced them at the Grand Prix Ball. It didn't take long before sparks flew between them, with the pair enjoying their first holiday together in the heart of Marbella.

    A few months ago, the DJ spoke about her "good relationship" with the hunk to the news outlet. She told the publication that when the couple met, they didn't feel the need to "vet" her man because they were introduced through her close friends.

    She went on: "I am in a really good relationship now. Jimmy is lovely!" Denise explained how they were set up by her close pals, adding: "I was introduced to him via my friends who I have known for the best part of my life.

    "I didn't think I needed to get him vetted. I knew they were never going to set me up with someone who I couldn't trust. I knew they wouldn't do that to me and he knows too many people."
