Celebrity Big Brother star Denise Welch to wed Lincoln Townley today in Portugal!


Former Celebrity Big Brother winner Denise Welch is set to wed Lincoln Townley today in Portugal, and last night, she posted a picture to Twitter which showed her looking relaxed and in great shape as she celebrated with friends ahead of her big day.

She tweeted, “So thrilled to be with so many friends and family the night before my wedding to @LincolnTownley.”

However, earlier this week, Denise was evidently upset by an article in a magazine which reported that her son Matthew wouldn’t be attending the wedding.

While posting a picture of the cover of the magazine in question, Denise wrote, “Please lovely gang don’t buy this…

“Truly horrible cover again. Very hurtful to me and Matty x”

But she later tweeted, “Now this is a mag I’m proud to be on the cover of!!! @MindCharity xxx” and added this photograph…

denise welch, mind

With regard to why her son Matthew won’t be at her wedding today, the Daily Star reports, “The singer of the group The 1975 will be supporting the Rolling Stones during their gig in Hyde Park on Saturday evening.”

Meanwhile, an unnamed source told the Daily Mirror, “On the one hand, Denise was absolutely gutted when Matt rang and told her he wouldn’t be attending her big day…

“But on the other, she was absolutely thrilled.

“Den is immensely proud of Matt, especially because he’s done all this off his own back with no help or special favours from her.

“As much as she would love Matthew to be there on Saturday, she realises you don’t turn down the Rolling Stones.”

On a lighter note, while jetting to Portugal yesterday, Denise tweeted, “Hilarious!! The Captain and First Officer on our @easyJet flight are looking after my wedding dress in the cockpit!!!! Xx”

Aww bless! Here’s hoping Denise and Lincoln have the day of their dreams!
