Denise Welch: “My book is controversial”

Former Corrie star and Loose Women host, Denise Welch, has defended her autobiography, saying that although it’s caused quite a lot of controversy, she’s not sorry she wrote it.

While appearing on This Morning, Denise revealed that the book had started out as being about the effects of clinical depression, but it rapidly became the story of her often chequered life.

Denise said, “It’s proved to be quite controversial, but I’m nothing if not open – especially on programmes like Loose Women, which has given me the sort of profile where people can speculate on your life.

“Obviously all of us – all of the girls – are quite pleased that we still are on the covers of magazines.

“In fact, one of my favourite quotes was something like, ‘Are Denise Welch, Jane McDonald and Coleen Nolan becoming the Kate, Sienna and Jordan of the old birds?’

“You do have to embrace these magazine stories.

“On a more serious level, when I was approached to do this, initially I was going to write a book about my battle with clinical depression.

“As I started to write, I realised that I couldn’t really write about my condition without leading the reader down the dark paths that it took me to.”

Denise also answered the recent media speculation which suggested members of her family had been shocked by the revelations made in the book.

She said, “People have said to me, ‘Did your family know about the book?’ Of course they knew about it, they’ve all sanctioned it.”
