Denise Van Outen and partner Eddie Boxshall recently revealed how an attempt to be adventurous in the bedroom didn’t quite turn out as they thought it would!

Speaking on their podcast Before We Say I Do, the pair were having laughter therapy with expert Pete Cann when he asked about the last time they had properly laughed together.

Van Outen revealed that, after having a few drinks one night, she decided to get out her sexy, seven-inch heels!

“I decided that I was going to do a little bit of dressing up for Eddie because we thought we'd just be a little bit adventurous in the bedroom,” she said.

“I've got this really high pair of shoes that he really likes — he thinks they're quite sexy — so I thought I'd put my shoes on.”

So far so good, but what started out as a bit of fun ended up with Van Outen waking up in pain, unable to feel her feet!

“I woke up in the morning and I thought my feet feel really tight,” the 46-year-old recalled.

She continued: “I couldn't work out what was wrong with my feet. I said: 'I can't feel my feet!' I pulled the duvet back and I still have my shoes on. I'd been asleep in them the whole night!”

Boxshall, her partner of seven years, says it really made the pair laugh and it’s something that still gets them giggling today.

“We were both laughing so hard because it was just so funny,” he exclaimed.

“She must have slept like Dracula on her back with these feet and she still had her shoes on, just pointing upwards in the bed!”

“I've never gone past three years in a relationship - this is my longest relationship,” she admitted.

“We're coming up to seven years - but the thing is, by having therapy now and counselling as a couple, we should be able to get past the seven years.”
