Denise on TV

It’s several years now since I was on TV and I’ve since lost about 8 stone! But if you want to see me helping Paul you can access the show via the links on this page.

I was also filmed whilst on holiday on St Helena (about 1.11 in, and filmed in a later episode)

and appeared on

  • Too Fat To Fly
  • Change That (Makeover show)  in 1997
  • CBBC programme – Xchange (2005)
