Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Denise Van Outen in another Twitter spat with a fan she accused of being “nosey!”

by Lynn Rowlands


Fans of last year’s Strictly Come Dancing contestant Denise Van Outen may recall that during the recent spell of extremely bad weather, an irritated Denise took to Twitter to have a bit of a rant at fans who hadn’t turned up to Strictly’s live tour because of the snow.

When one Twitter user asked Denise if she expected fans to “risk their lives” in order to watch the show, TV presenter Denise replied, “It’s only snow…”

And it seems that prolific tweeter Denise has got into another row with another – now former – fan, during which Denise accused the Twitter user of being “nosey.”

The row began when Denise tweeted a thank you to her husband Lee Mead for staying in to look after the couple’s daughter while Denise went on a night out.

She wrote, “thanks @leemeadofficial for staying home to look after our little one. Your night out tomorrow . My turn to be cosy indoors x”

Twitter follower Mrs Gilly then replied to the tweet saying, “@denise_vanouten @leemeadofficial You never seem to do anything/go anywhere together? Arrange a sitter! X”

Lee then replied, “What makes you say that?? Because we’re not at events together all the time x”

Mrs Gilly responded, “No, because all pics are of@denise_vanouten and others, but never you! Let’s have a pic of you together, that’s all x”

An irritated Denise then tweeted, “@Gillyps67 why are you so nosey?”

Denise apparently then blocked the Twitter fan, prompting her to tweet, “@denise_vanouten How to treat your fans! Im now blocked!

“How can I be nosey on a public site! Upset now.”

What are your thoughts about this as an issue in general? Do celebrities – or anybody for that matter – have the right to get annoyed if someone remarks on what is relatively personal information if it’s in a public domain?

Let us know! For now, here’s a reminder of Denise on SCD this year…
