Denise Van Outen
A charismatic, sexy and energetic presenter, Denise has become a household name in Britain, thanks to roles on shows such as The Big Breakfast and BBC’s Any Dream will do, as well as appearing in several productions in the West End and on Broadway.
Denise joined The Big Breakfast on Channel4 as a weather and travel reporter in 1996, and landed the main co-presenting role in 1997. It proved to be her big breakthrough.
In 2003, she returned to the London stage at the Gielgud Theatre in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s one-woman show Tell Me On A Sunday, which he reworked for her. She was a huge success and the show ran for nearly a year before embarking on a 10-month UK tour in 2004.
Recently, Denise headed over to the US, where she proved a hit, fronting NBC’s Grease: You’re the One that I Want!, and has been steadily developing her US career ever since. In spring 2007, she joined the panel for BBC One’s Any Dream Will Do which was casting Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. 2007 also saw Denise star in the musical Rent in the role of Maureen.
A sexy, fun and lively personality, Denise is often the favourite choice for hosting of events and award ceremonies.
