Last week it emerged that Van Outen had called time on her seven-year relationship with Boxshall after discovering that he had been messaging and calling other women.
The couple have been a firm fixture on Celebrity Gogglebox over the last few years - and despite her split, The Sun says that Van Outen is remaining on the show.
"Denise and Eddie joined Gogglebox together in 2019 and were a hugely popular part of the celebrity series," a source told the newspaper.
"They were already signed up to the next round of filming when Denise dumped Eddie and she wants to honour the commitment.
"But she won't be having Eddie back in the house, let alone on her sofa, so she is looking for a friend to come on board.
"Ideally, it would be Kimberley Walsh as they're good pals and Kimberley has been on Gogglebox before.
"The split has knocked Denise for six but she's putting on a brave face and moving on as best she can."
Celebrity Gogglebox is expected to return to Channel 4 this summer. body check tags ::
