She's not exactly known for keeping a low profile.
But Denise Welch took it one step further on Saturday night, showing up to her charity ball dressed in a peacock style outfit, with both her ex-husband and her new boyfriend in tow.
The outgoing star, who's always been very vocal about her private life, seemed keen to show off the fact that she's still on good terms with ex Tim Healy as they posed together at the Manchester ball.
