Speaking on the BBC Radio 2 show, Denise said: “The one thing I’m really proud of myself for is I do know when to walk away and I don’t like to be taken advantage of.”

“Sometimes it’s been to the detriment of my own career or in my own relationships, but I just feel like it’s really important as a woman to have self-worth and self-respect,” she continued.

“I’ve always tried to maintain that in anything that I do in life, generally. More so now as a mother because I feel like I’m a role model and I’ve got to set an example.”
