Denise Van Outen granted divorce in 90 seconds

Denise Van Outen has been given a "quickie" divorce in 90 seconds from her husband of six years Lee Mead.

The 41-year-old beauty - who split from the 34-year-old actor in 2013 - was granted the divorce at London's Central Family Court on Tuesday (8.12.15) but neither parties attended.

According to MailOnline, the divorce ruled by District Judge Heather MacGregor was given on the grounds that their relationship had broken down and the couple have not lived together in two years, which Denise confirmed in a statement and Lee didn't disagree.

The couple have also vowed to remain "great friends" for the benefit of their five-year-old daughter Betsy.

The couple tied the knot in the Seychelles in April 2009 after a whirlwind 18-month romance.

Lee first met Denise in 2007 when she was a judge on TV talent show 'Any Dream Will Do', in which he competed and went on to win the leading role in popular West End production 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'.

Speaking about their relationship last month, the TV presenter said she didn't regret marrying the star.

She said at the time: "I've no regrets about getting married to Lee at all. He's such a lovely person. There was no big fall-out and we got each other through [the split], really. We're friends, so we supported each other."

Denise is currently dating city trader Eddie Boxshall, who she met in 2014.
