Denise continued: “She thought Jacqueline Denise flowed better than Denise Jacqueline, right? Which is so annoying, because I’ve been brought up with that.

I’ve actually taken it off my passport and certain things. It’s really annoying.”

“So, I’ll be at the doctor’s. I’ll say: ‘It’s Denise Welch. Hang on a minute, it might be Denise Townley. Oh, actually, it might be Jacqueline Denise Townley,’ you know, it drives me mad!

“People have said to me: ‘Do you regret it?’ Obviously, you know, of course in some ways I regret that I had to make that decision. But I made it for my own future. People think that’s selfish but so be it.”

She revealed that the relationship had become abusive, and she took the step to have an abortion as a result.

“I found myself in an incredibly coercive, controlling, incredibly controlling relationship. Not physical but as we know you just can’t see the bruises.

“I got pregnant not purposely, but I wasn’t doing a great deal to prevent it because I was under the impression that would be a wanted pregnancy but I was made to feel so bad,” she added.
