My favourite Essex gal Denise Van Outen and former Hollyoaks star Carley Stenson started their official run in West End show Legally Blonde this week. I popped down to see the show which stars the awesome Sheridan Smith too. I was blown away by the production, the songs and the set. It’s definitely my favourite West End show at the minute. Denise was clearly thrilled to have joined the cast when we had a glass of pop afterwards. Den told me: “I’m so pleased to have joined the cast – it’s such a fun show and the cast are amazing. It feels like perfect timing if I’m honest. I get to spend time with my daughter Betsy during the day, bath her, put her to bed and then come to work. And I’m loving every minute.
“Sheridan’s incredible and we’re growing really close. We’re even venturing out for a night out at Sugar Hut in Essex soon.”
Congratulations Den – you’ve set the West End alight once again. Other guests at the opening night including Antony Costa, Stephen Fry, Liz McClarnon and the cast of The Only Way Is Essex. I bet you’re all well jel.
