Amazing news at Spabreaks today as we announce that actress and TV presenter Denise Van Outen will be joining the team as a new ambassador for the upcoming year!

At we send more than 4,000 people on spa breaks each week and we endeavour to push the industry forward, with particular efforts made in making wellbeing more accessible for those with cancer and championing body confidence and mental health awareness. As part of Denise Van Outen’s work with, the mum of one, famed in particular for her role presenting The Big Breakfast and performances in the West End and on Broadway, will be reviewing spas, sharing her thoughts on health and wellbeing on the Hot Tub and working with us on upcoming initiatives throughout the year.

Now in her 40s, Denise has been outspoken about her increasing awareness of health and wellbeing. Embodying the principles of balance and enjoyment, she has talked candidly about combining healthy eating and exercise with life’s little indulgences, as well as proactively supporting those with and beyond cancer.

An avid spa goer, Denise knows the value of spending quality time with friends in a relaxed environment, as well as dedicating time to caring for herself in a world of busy work schedules, and wanting to feel her best in order to be the best mum possible to her daughter, Betsy.

In 2012, launched Recovery Retreats, an industry first that made spa days and breaks accessible to anyone with or recovering from cancer. We have also launched initiatives such as Accessible Spas and Women’s Wellness Week, and worked hard to champion the role of women in the workplace. It is therefore with mutual passions and ideals that Denise and prepare to work together.

Abi Wright, founder of, said: “We couldn’t be happier to be joined by Denise. She’s a wonderful example of a woman who works hard at her career, being a mum and spending time with her friends, juggling it all, just like the rest of us. Her shared passions for enjoying wellbeing and proactively supporting anyone with cancer and beyond make her a wonderful friend to and we’re thoroughly looking forward to working with her.”

Denise said: “I think the idea of enjoying our health sometimes gets lost in our busy lives, and I love’s idea of restoring balance and fun to wellbeing. A spa is a wonderful place to have quality time with friends, partners or just looking after yourself. It’s a really diverse area of opportunity and it’s lovely to be working with people who want to highlight that.”
