Denise Welch's depression battle

Their wedding anniversary comes weeks after Denise opened up on her 31-year battle with depression on Loose Women.

She appeared on the show via video link to give "her most important interview ever" about her fight and to inspire people to believe things can get better.

Denise said: "Obviously I have no medical knowledge, I'm in no position to tell anyone how to survive it, but if anyone can gain solace from my experience…

"It started when I gave birth to Matty 31 years ago. Prior to that I'd had no episode of depression.

"I didn't know the true meaning of depression until I had very severe post-natal depression."

She revealed there was nobody talking about it back then in the public eye and she wasn't well enough to find a book about it off her own back.

The former Coronation Street star added: "I would have given anything to have turned on my TV, to see someone I recognised talking about an illness they lived with, how they enjoyed the bits in between."
