The presenter-turned- Broadway star (41) revealed she loved a night on the tiles in Lillie's Bordello nightclub with some top Irish celebs.

"It's so nice to be back in Dublin, I haven't been here for a while and I love this city so much," she said. "Back in the 90s, I used to come over and host the Childline concerts at the Point and they were just absolutely raucous.

"Now I'm back and I'm slightly more grown up, which is a bit of a shame," she continued. "But I've had my wildest nights in Dublin. I used to always be in Lillie's Bordello. We used to go there with all the Boyzone lot and it was really good fun.

"I'll have to come back and do that again," she added.

The former Big Breakfast presenter was in town to launch a new weight-loss aid called XLS Medical Max Strength.

Denise doesn't take them herself but said her family and friends have had great results.

"I'm lucky in that my job involves a lot of exercise, especially when I'm doing shows so I'm always on the move," she said.

"But of course, I do work in an industry where the magazines are brutal but I just think confidence is key.

"For me, it's about feeling good and feeling healthy - it's not about being a size eight or whatever, it's about feeling good in my own skin," she added.
