Denise Van Outen quits OK! TV - just days before the show begins!

Denise Van Outen & Matt Johnson (OK! TV)

Denise Van Outen has quit OK! TV, Channel Five's new evening magazine show, before the first episode of the programme has even aired! In a statement released this afternoon, Channel Five put the move down to "other contractual commitments", as the broadcaster races to find a replacement.

We reported last week how Denise Van Outen was planning on joining forces with Welsh presenter Matt Johnson to front the new show, due to air on Monday.

In a statement, Channel Five would only say: "Due to other contractual commitments, Denise Van Outen will not be presenting OK! TV. Both parties wish each other the very best."

OK! TV is still scheduled to premiere on Monday, 6:30PM on the channel.
