A very strange kind of divorce: Denise Welch's strip karaoke nights with husband Tim Healy and two topless friends
While most estranged couples only speak to each other through their lawyers, Denise Welch and Tim Healy seem to have taken a very different approach to divorce.
Pictures emerged of the couple singing karaoke just last week with Welch half naked while her husband of 23-years can't take his eyes off a fellow singer who is exposing her breasts to camera.
Clutching a microphone and pulling her jumper up over her trademark nude bra Denise smiles at the camera while the only clue her actor husband might not have eyes for his wife is his lecherous leer at the blonde female friend's exposed breasts.
