Chris Evans, 54, was at the centre of a slightly awkward conversation as the Loose Women panel discussed Denise Welch’s, 62, new book detailing the trauma of her mental health. Titled The Unwelcome Visitor: Depression and How I Survive It, the ITV presenter recalled a depressive episode that would become one of the most “terrifying” moments of her life.

Discussing the reaction she had received to the incredibly honest and raw account of her emotions, Denise revealed she had spoken to Chris about it too, much to fellow presenter Carol Griffin’s dismay.

Chris and Carol used to be married, something she now can’t understand.

They wed in 1991 before parting ways two years later, and they are both now happily married with their respective other halves.

Carol’s face was quite the picture when Denise admitted she had spoken to her ex about her book.

“I tell you who did enjoy the book,” Denise said, pointing at Carol who appeared via video link from her home.

“I did a fabulous interview before I did this interview with your ex-husband Mr Chris Evans on his Virgin Radio show.”

Carol’s eyes widened as she leant back in her chair, seemingly surprised Denise had brought the subject up.

The Waterloo Road star continued: “He was incredibly supportive and he’d never read a book about mental health before and he said he couldn’t put it down, which was great.”

Denise explained that Chris had called her after the show had finished and asked her to go on again next week to talk some more about the importance of understanding mental health.

“I thought ‘Lovely’, but I didn’t know what to say about you,” Denise laughed as Carol smirked.

“I said ‘Your ex Carol sends her love’, he said ‘She didn’t though did she’ and I said ‘No not at all!'”

The whole panel burst out laughing as Carol also cringed with laughter.

Carol has openly addressed her marriage to Chris in the past, where she branded him “manipulative” during a discussion about the perfect age to get married on Loose Women last year.

They tied the knot at Camden Register Office but she said she doesn’t understand why she married him in the first place.

“I was just swept along, at the time I convinced myself I couldn’t live without him,” she admitted.

“He was very manipulative. Anyone who thinks I married him for his money, that’s nonsense because I had more money than him at the time.
