I've played Bolton Octagon twice, both times premieres by established writers. First was by Henry Livings - first time I played a northern lass and just a year before I landed Corrie. And now I'm back in a new play by Timberlake Wertenbaker, seen here with long time chum Cathy Tyson.

Don't know why the north feels like home to this southern lass but it does. I love the West Pennines. We've been drubbed in the press which isn't right if you go by our audiences who laugh and clap and seem to have a really good time. Bad time for a left wing play I guess. Here's a local revue that raves - only on till June 3 so if you fancy it, don't miss out!

I'm going to have some real exciting news later this month - so watch this space! Meanwhile, here's me enjoying downtime with some soap chums.

That's Dan and Rob, here's me and Rich on my boat Sunya. Yeah, yeah, I know we had to get a tow in the end, but only after a fab sail Richard Hawley!

What's coming up next? Rumours abound.
Well, there are two exciting jobs in the pipeline but it's too early to broadcast.
So watch this space...

What I can broadcast a gig I've got coming up this Sunday.

Bar Broadway
10 Steine St
Brighton BN2 1TY

Joanie may be gone but Denise plays on, to bring you a personal collection of upbeat pop and blues to make you zing. As colourful as Denise's characters, from Tell Him to Gilbert 'o' Sullivan, there's something to make everyone swing. Joined by Ruth Spencer with Loose Screw pal Dedi Madden on exquisite guitar. Please help me spread the word chums! Hope you can come!

So my Emmerdale Joanie tragically died of heart break in the Dingle van. I tell ya! #nevertanglewithadingle. I should know better. Bye bye lovely friends, lovely job. Thank you loyal fans for your outpouring of support all over social media. I'm really touched. Enjoy the new stories as they play out and please root for - well all my lovely pals, but especially my pal Huey, who plays Kyle. Proud to have been a part.

Welcome to my new website! I think (I hope) I'm in charge of this one, so with luck and your help I can keep it fresh, up-to-date and interactive. Take a trawl around and let me know what you think...

My news is this summer I sailed by little 26' sailboat south from North Wales, round Lands End and home to Brighton. What an adventure! Here I am hanging over the bow filming a pod of dolphins in the English Channel.

Now I'm back in Leeds filming Emmerdale. Great storylines coming up for Mrs Dingle so watch this space.

More on that soon, meanwhile enjoy the Autumn sun.

Love Denise xx
