Denise Welch says her new boyfriend Lincoln Townley is "the one".
The 'Loose Women' star insists the 39-year-old adult party planner is the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with, despite him being 14 years younger, and the couple have already found their wedding venue.
When asked if she thinks he is "the one", the 53-year-old actress replied: "Yeah I do. But I'm so terrified of tempting fate," while Lincoln added: "Yeah I do, yeah definitely."
Denise split with actor husband Tim Healey earlier this year after a 24-year marriage and she later revealed details of her love life on 'Loose Women' following her winning appearance on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The former 'Coronation Street' actress admits she loves Lincoln's "hot young man's body" and she isn't interested in men who "haven't had a drink" or a "wild time".
Talking about introducing him to her two sons - Matthew, 22, and 10-year-old Louis - in the couple's first ever joint interview, Denise told Bella magazine: "I am a very good judge of character. There's no way I would bring anyone into my children's life who I'm not 100 per cent sure of. Nor would I have dreamt about introducing Lincoln to them if he had a dark and murky past.
"Having said that, I like people who have had a past. I'm not interested in men who haven't had a drink, haven't had a wild time. It's more attractive and it's more interesting. But I'm not going to put myself in a position where I'm involved in a murky world.
"It would have been a very good story - 'Oh her and Tim have broken up and she's with a bad 'un.' "
Lincoln met Denise in April last year, and his first opinion about blonde actress was that she was "very attractive".
He said: "I found her very attractive. We met in a nightclub at one of my parties. At the end of last year we looked at being together."
