Denise resides in Cheshire. She has been in multiple relationships. She was first married to actor David Easter in 1983. But it could not last long and the couple separated in 1988. Denise did not shy from telling the world that the reason for their split was his cheating on her.
The beautiful actress had met her second husband Tim Healy at the Live Theater Company of Newcastle. They were working together in this place. After her divorce with David Easter, Denise began to date Tim.
They wed in 1988 in Haringey in London. She had two children with him. Matthew Timothy was born on 8 April 1989 in Hendon in London and Louis Vincent was born on 2 March 2001 in Salford.
However, the couple separated and it was only in February 2012 that Denise revealed on Loose Women that she and Tim have separated a long time back. Soon after this, Denise began dating her PR manager Lincoln Townley. They engaged in August 2012 and married in Portugal on 13 July 2013.

In an interview given before she entered the villa, Belle had said:
‘My dad is an actor, Tamer Hassan. He’s been in The Football Factory, The Business, Game of Thrones – he is my link to the famous world. He is a very supportive dad, he is like my best friend and is always there for me.
‘He’s told me to be myself but has also warned me, “I’m watching and I’m going to be seeing every detail!” Because he was in a film with Danny Dyer, I’ve met Dani Dyer when we were kids.’
