Denise Van Outen joins the dating app at the age of 50 after a heartbreak

Denise van Outen is putting herself back on the map after a heartbreak and has joined the celebrity dating app Raya.

The 50-year-old model split from her boyfriend, property developer Jimmy Barba, last year after an 18-month romance, and at the time felt she had gone ‘back to square one’.

Denise has since recovered from the heartbreak and is now enjoying being single again and has been asked out on a number of ‘dinner dates’ by potential suitors.

She said okay! Magazine: ‘I came across Raya a few months ago. I’m there as myself and it was fun. I’ve been going out to eat a lot lately and I’ve met some really nice guys.’

Denise said it feels “liberating” to be single at 50, after reaching the milestone this month, and that she feels “the sexiest (she) has ever felt.”

The actress said that while she is open to meeting Mr Right, for now she is having fun and going with the flow.

She continued: “It feels liberating to be single as a 50-year-old woman – totally liberating. I allow myself to just go on dates and enjoy them for what they are…

“When the time is right, I’m ready to meet Mr. Right. Until that happens, I’m just going to sit back and go with the flow.”

Denise won’t have much time to dwell on romance as she has a busy summer ahead of her as a DJ at festivals in the UK.

She has a 14-year-old daughter Betsy, whom she shares with her former husband West End star Lee Mead.
