TV presenter Denise Van Outen has admitted she thinks Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical search show is ''great'' - even though she didn't land a job on the panel
Denise Van Outen thinks 'Over the Rainbow' is "great".
The TV presenter - who is about to give birth to her first child with husband Lee Mead - claims she has remained on friendly terms with Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber and enjoys his latest show, even though she failed to land a spot on the judging panel after announcing she was pregnant.
She said: "I have still got a good relationship with the BBC and with Andrew - and I've watched the show and I think it's great."
The blonde TV beauty had been in discussions with TV producers for a slot on Andrew's latest musical theatre star search show after the success of her appearance as a judge on 'Any Dream Will Do'.
Although the BBC have repeatedly denied it, Denise admits there was "some truth" in reports she was axed from the latest programme because of her pregnancy.
She said on 'This Morning': "There is some truth in that, I was in discussions to do the show - myself and John Barrowman - we were talking about doing it... it was mentioned to me that it could be a problem - that because I'm due during the series.
"But at most I would have missed one show. I was hoping that they would look at the option of maybe having a guest judge in for the one show that I was missing, but it wasn't meant to be. And then from what I hear, they changed their plans - and obviously I'm not doing it. So it's fine, it's a shame."
