Loose Women regular Denise hosted her 20th anniversary Gem Appeal Ball recently, with a host of famous faces on the guest list.

However, one who couldn’t make it was the lovely Jane.

And, as a result, she sent a video message to Denise and everyone at the party apologising.

This week, Denise shared the video – which saw Jane on a boat – with her Instagram followers.
