Lee Mead 'facing things head on' after Denise split
Lee Mead insists he is concentrating on his daughter Betsy's welfare following the breakdown of his marriage to Denise Van Outen
Lee Mead is "facing things head on" following the breakdown of his marriage to Denise Van Outen.
The 32-year-old musical theatre actor insists he isn't worried about his future without the 39-year-old actress because he is just focused on making sure the pair's three-year-old daughter Betsy doesn't get dragged into a messy divorce.
He said: "Nothing really worries me. My daughter's future is a thing I wish for - I wish for her to be happy.
"Things come along that you have to deal with but there are no actual worries - I tend to try to face things head on.
"It can be hard but it's about holding your dignity. I know my principles - when to speak and when not to."
Despite the pair's break up, Lee - who has been married to Denise for four years - insists he is "pretty happy" with his life since he shot to fame after winning BBC show 'Any Dream Will Do' in 2007.
Speaking to Cumbria Live, he added: "I'm pretty happy with the way the past six years have gone. I have got a beautiful daughter. It's important to balance my family life."
