Former Coronation Street and Loose Women star Denise Welch had extra reason to celebrate Valentine’s Day yesterday as her lover Lincoln Townley was given the all clear by medics after it was thought he’d suffered a heart attack.

He and Denise have reportedly “been on a health drive” for the past four months ahead of their wedding.

When hit ITV sitcom Benidorm returns to our screens with a new series later this month, the regular holidaymakers at the Solana are revolting…

A show insider told the Daily Star, “Joyce thinks the [hotel] is tacky and wants to make it posh. But she has a fight on her hands.
“Expect fireworks right from the start of the new series.” Read more & comment »
