Denise van Outen has shared the ‘biggest alarm’ moment revealing ex-fiancé Eddie Boxshall cheated on her.
The TV star opened up about the end of their relationship in her new autobiography, A Bit Of Me: From Basildon to Broadway and Back.
She had to make a major change to the book after the couple, who were set to marry, split in January after seven years together.
Denise vowed to be honest with fans and revealed she knew it was the end the moment she borrowed Eddie’s iPad.
The 47-year-old then discovered Eddie had been sending inappropriate messages – including phone sex – to other women behind her back.

The Gogglebox star even found a photo of another woman’s breasts, which Eddie had saved as his screensaver.
She could also see that Eddie had tried to cover his tracks by blocking a woman he was having an affair with from her Instagram account.
Denise wrote: “I quickly found the woman’s profile using her alias only to find that I had previously blocked her on my Instagram account – which struck me as odd.
“This was a woman I didn’t know who clearly had an online connection with my boyfriend.”
The TV and radio presenter immediately said she unblocked the woman and then got a message saying, “Oh, you unblocked me then.”
Denise replied that she doesn’t even know the woman, so why would she have blocked her.
“She suggested that Eddie probably got on my phone and blocked her so she couldn’t message me,” she continued.
“Her name was Tracy, and she had apparently spoken to Eddie on FaceTime and texted for a long time — often from home and sometimes from my apartment in Hampstead, which she seemed to think was his.”
Denise said she found selfies of Eddie with another woman at a bar – taken on the same day she took a night off to spend time with him.
When Denise finally confronted her ex-fiancé, the excuses came thick and fast.
“As for the woman showing her breasts, Eddie said he didn’t know why she sent the picture,” Denise said.
“But when the story came out, I got messages from people saying they’d seen them together.
“As for the second wife, ‘a girlfriend’ was the best he could do. Turns out she’s been an ex since 2013.
“He swore he met her while she was at her father’s funeral. I found out later that he had died a year and a half earlier. If there was nothing in there, why all the secrecy?
“And having these footage as a screen saver was the biggest red flag of all!”
