She gave up booze eight years ago in 2012 but it seems like lockdown has been hard for Denise Welch.
Appearing via video link on Tuesday Denise was on Loose Women live from her kitchen when she talked about how the lockdown has proved hard for her.
Denise who’s married to Lincoln Townley admitted that isolation has been her ‘toughest challenge yet’ after being teetotal for eight years.
The former Coronation Street star who lives in Cheshire said:
‘I have found in lockdown that this is mine and Lincoln’s toughest challenge in eight years.
‘At no point have we felt that we’d pick up a drink. We have good times and bad times, it’s hard.
‘We would like nothing more than to take the edge off.’
Also on the panel today was Nadia Sawalha who’s husband, Mark Adderley, has been sober for 15 years.
Nadia admitted that she has been having some wine while in lockdown but her hubby hasn’t had any.
Denise has done so well and it’s fantastic to see.
