Loose Women star Denise Welch secretly spent the night with her toyboy lover this week as she put on a public show of togetherness with husband Tim Healy, it has been claimed.
Reports of an affair with party planner Lincoln Townley, 39, emerged last Sunday but the next day, the Celebrity Big Brother winner told TV viewers her marriage was 'fine'.
When the claims were first made, the 53-year-old celebrated her husband of 23 years' 60th birthday at a restaurant near their home in Cheshire.

She was seen kissing and cuddling the star of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, in an attempt to show all was well in their household.
The next day she told Loose Women
viewers: 'Everything’s fine at home, absolutely fine. We had a great day
yesterday. It was Tim’s birthday.'
But after the show, she raced to the exclusive Marriott County Hall to spent the night with Lincoln, the Sunday Mirror claimed.

Denise left on Tuesday morning for a brief appearance on This Morning before
joining her colleagues in the nearby Loose Women studios.
After the show, the former Coronation
Street star then dashed to the Landmark Hotel in Marylebone for coffee with her toyboy.
A fan who spotted the pair told the newspaper: 'They looked like any other
couple. It was busy in the bar but they were not being discreet at all,
which was surprising after she said everything was OK with her husband
'She didn’t seem to care who saw them
and what people thought about her being with him… although everyone
was very nice to her in the bar.'
Denise then caught a train back to the home she shares with Tim in Cheshire.
A source told the newspaper: 'She’s
clearly a torn woman and finding it all very difficult. She loves Tim
dearly and only wants the best for her children, but she can’t help her
strong feelings for Lincoln. They haven’t changed during her time on
Celebrity Big Brother.

'Denise has had a very busy week with her TV commitments after leaving the show but has still found time for Lincoln.
'She is worried her marriage has
taken its course, but it’s not that simple. When she’s in front of her
viewers on Loose Women, talking to her fans on the street and playing up
for the photographers she makes out that all is fine at home .'
Lover: Carpenter Steve Murray, who Denise admitted to having an affair with
Denise is believed to have met Lincoln at a nightclub in Central London last April while she was on the
Dancing on Ice tour.
They are said to have gone back to his flat in Hampstead
They then saw each other casually while she was filming Loose Women in London and from September the relationship
started to become more serious.
She apparently even discussed leaving Tim
with her friends and spent a night with Lincoln at the Marriott before going into the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Lincoln's checkered past was revealed this week after he appeared in court charged with stealing 12,000 cash from a building firm.
He is accused of stealing the money from FM Conway, a construction company based in Dartford, Kent, in 2009.
The case was adjourned until May.
Meanwhile, in 2004, Denise confessed to having an affair with TV studio carpenter Steve Murray.
But in her autobiography she said she had repaired
her marriage after that affair.
Denise caused a stir in the
Celebrity Big Brother house with her erratic behaviour and
her clashes with Reservoir Dogs actor Michael Madsen.
After leaving the house last Friday
night, Michael revealed: 'She offered to sleep with me a number of
times. She just kept trying.'
Denise hit back later saying she was happily married.

offers. Why, when I have a husband and children watching at home, would I
beg him for sex'
