Denise Van Outen for EastEnders love triangle
Denise Van Outen is set to stir things up on Albert Square when she joins the soap for a few episodes, admitting her character will become involved with multiple Walford men
Denise Van Outen's 'EastEnders' character will be involved in a love triangle.
The 40-year-old star has joined the BBC soap for a short stint and admitted her new alter ego will be causing "trouble".
Asked which Albert Square resident she will be dating, Denise teased: "It's not just one person - that's all I'm saying.
"My character will come in and I'm going to cause some trouble."
Though she remained tight-lipped on who she'll be romancing, the blonde beauty admitted she would love her character to get close to Max Branning, who is played by Jake Wood, who came fifth on the most recent series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
She said: "If I could pick, it would have to be Jake Wood who plays Max Branning as I'm a huge 'Strictly Come Dancing' fan and we've both done the show. We could do a sexy rumba together."
Denise - who has four-year-old daughter Betsey with ex-husband Lee Mead - has previously turned down a number of requests to appear on the show but says this brief stint "felt right".
She said: "The first time they approached me, I'd just fell pregnant with Betsey and couldn't tell them.
"Then the only reason I said no was because the character wasn't quite right for me and I knew it would be a lot of work to commit to.
"But this time, I felt like the character was right and I'm just dipping in for a few episodes to see how it goes.
"Also, they're celebrating their 30th anniversary so it's a brilliant time to be involved. It felt right."
