Denise Van Outen has said she is proud of her sexy lads’ magazine covers from the Nineties that helped her become a household name.
In an interview with The Sun, the star said she looked back on the photos with pride and had “no regrets” about the “fun to do” shoots.
She said: “It was very fashionable at the time and I enjoyed all of it. I never felt uncomfortable.
“I was quite selective anyway. I never did anything topless, there was more of a fashion approach to it.”
The Dancing on Ice star is busy writing her autobiography and said she is using the covers and their interviews as research, having kept them all in a box in her attic.
She described writing her autobiography as “cathartic” saying: “It’s given me time and space to breathe and look back and reflect on all the mad things I’ve done in my life."
Denise said writing the book has helped her realise how much she can remember of her past after thinking that she had a “terrible” memory, and see that she had a more positive time than she thought.

She added: “I spent the Nineties having a lot of high points and lots of low points in my life. A lot of heartbreak and heartache."
The star said looking back she believed she had a 'brilliant time' despite thinking she just "wanted to get through it" at the time.
Denise will continue to look back on her past as she is preparing to star in a reboot of The Big Breakfast.

She said that she and fellow co-host Johnny Vaughan had started having conversations about doing a special episode to mark the 30th anniversary of the show, after mending their friendship.
She continued by saying: “The original house has so many great memories and it would be amazing if we could return and film there, even though it's been renovated.
“We'd want to see all the old faces return and play some of the old games too. I'm sure the fans would love it and see it as a real nostalgia trip.
“It would be so much fun working with Johnny again on the show which means so much to us both.”
