Denise Van Outen is keen to mark the 30th anniversary of 'The Big Breakfast'

Denise Van Outen wants to bring back 'The Big Breakfast'.

The 46-year-old TV star has ended her long-running feud with her former 'Big Breakfast' co-host Johnny Vaughan and has revealed they've been talking about reviving the Channel 4 show.

She told the 'Sweat, Snot and Tears' podcast: "We have been speaking a lot recently. We've been on-and-off as friends for years for various reasons...

"A lot of my friends, that's never happened with, but I think just ours had combined career and work. When it's a work thing it's different."

Denise and Johnny, 54, were a huge hit with TV viewers during their time on the morning show.

And the actress has revealed she'd love for them to reunite to mark the programme's 30th anniversary next year.

She said: "We've started having conversations. It would be nice to do something to mark the 30th anniversary."

Denise admitted that the coronavirus lockdown had brought them closer together and she'd love to work with Johnny on 'The Big Breakfast' once again.

Speaking about the possibility, she told MailOnline: "The original house has so many great memories and it would be amazing if we could return and film there, even though it's been renovated.

"We'd want to see all the old faces return and play some of the old games too. I'm sure the fans would love it and see it as a real nostalgia trip.

"It would be so much fun working with Johnny again on show which means so much to us both."

Denise also denied that they ever had a "massive argument or fall out".

She explained: "It's weird because we've never had a massive argument or fall out, we just act like stroppy teenagers with each other. We are probably in a lot of ways quite similar and sometimes you can have a clash of personalities.

"But actually I've got a lot of love for Johnny and I'm sure he feels the same about our friendship."
