Denise van Outen's ex Eddie Boxshall has appeared to take a brutal swipe at the performer, following the announcement that she'd split from her boyfriend of 18 months, Jimmy Barba.
Denise, 49, and Eddie, 50, were in a relationship for seven years after being set up by mutual friend, Zoe Hardman. However, they broke up in February of last year, following rumours that Eddie had been texting other women, which 'set off alarm bells' for Denise.
At the time, Denise said: "Over the past couple of months, there has been much speculation regarding my relationship with Eddie. It saddens me to confirm that we are no longer a couple."
She continued: "I had to make the difficult decision not to continue in our relationship. I will always treasure the good times we spent together, and the memories made."
By June, the West End performer and Strictly Come Dancing star appeared to have found love again with property developer, Jimmy Barba.
The couple seemed inseparable during the early stages of their relationship, with a source telling OK! Magazine that Denise was 'smitten' with Jimmy.
"He makes her laugh, they're having so much fun together after meeting online," the source said. "It's not been long, but she's smitten which is why she went red carpet official with him.”
However, after 18 months of dating, Denise and Jimmy decided to go their separate ways.
Denise confirmed the couple's split earlier this week, telling The Sun: "We have decided to part ways, but we remain great friends, and our families and children are still in touch."
Despite their break-up, she and Jimmy still follow each other on Instagram and have kept loved-up snaps from their time together on their profiles.
A mere few days later, Denise's ex Eddie appears to have had something to say about it.
The 50-year-old, who appeared with Denise on Channel 4's Celebrity Gogglebox, took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to share a clip of Queen's hit song, 'Another One Bites the Dust'.
He captioned the video: "Next please....." in what could be seen as dig at Denise.
Eddie recently said he was the 'happiest he's ever been' after announcing he was in a new relationship. The TV personality shared a photo of himself cuddled up to a blonde woman that fans were quick to point out looked suspiciously like Denise. I'm sure it's all just a coincidence...
