Denise Welch was back to her partying ways last night as she caught up with fellow Dancing On Ice stars at a party in London.
The 52-year-old Loose Women star appeared over-refreshed and in high spirits as her friends appeared to hold her upright – before she launched herself and landed a full-on kiss on a male pal.
With her purple top soaked in sweat, she was seen looking dishevelled as she stood outside Soho gay bar Freedom, the venue for the party, having a cigarette.

Her husband of 21 years Tim Healy, 59, who she recently co-starred with on hit ITV1 show Benidorm, had stayed at home.
Party-loving Denise, who cuddled up to another friend on the night out, recently admitted she had had an affair with 36-year-old carpenter Steve Murray.
Writing in her new autobiography Pulling Myself Together, she claims that “sexual infidelity is not the end of the world” for her and she is regularly seen kissing friends – male and female – on her wild nights out.

She explains in the book: “I don’t see a one-night stand as spelling the end of our relationship. A one-night blip can be just that: a blip.”
Denise concluded: “We don’t have a perfect marriage, I don’t know what a perfect marriage is… We are just so thankful that we’ve stayed together.”
Matt Evers, Denise”s dancing partner on Dancing On Ice, seemed to find her behaviour last night hilarious and even picked her up at one point – perhaps making the point that she needed to be carried home.

Denise was joined at the bash by The Only Way Is Essex star Maria Fowler, who had earlier joined Mail Online been at the Black Swan DVD launch at Swarovski Crystallized Lounge in Great Marlborough Street.
Coincidentally, her TOWIE co-star Harry Derbridge revealed this week that he”d like to be a contestant on Dancing On Ice.
The 17-year-old, who showed his dancing talent in an episode when he dressed up as Lady Gaga and performed one of her routines at his last birthday, said: “I”m a dancer and I”m doing my own shows.
“I”d love to do “Strictly Come Dancing” or “Dancing On Ice”. But if anyone offered me a part on “EastEnders” I”d do that too.”
Also at Dancing On Ice party meanwhile were former Dancing On Ice star Suzanne Shaw, and the lovebirds from the last series, Chloe Madeley and Sam Attwater.
It”s unclear what they were putting in the cocktails at Freedom, but Sam looked almost as dishevelled as Denise when he left the bar hand-in-hand with his new girlfriend.
The unshaven former EastEnders star looked tired and scruffy though an adoring Chloe didn”t seem to mind.
