London, Jun 11 : The secret behind English television hostess Denise Van Outen's newfound happiness has been revealed - a toyboy lover.
The actress, who co-presents Capital One radio breakfast show, confessed in a magazine interview that she has finally found love, and that too with a younger man.
The 34-year-old is head over heels in love with 26-year-old 'Any Dream Will Do' winner Lee Mead.
Outen had been in a very publicised break-up with Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay in 2001, but she says that she has now found the answer to her dating disasters.
"Personally ... a man in his 20s works for me," the Daily Express quoted her, as telling Cosmopolitan magazine.
"In my experience, single men in their mid to late 30s tend to be single for a reason. The good ones get snapped up," she added.
Though she did admit that she also has been quite a handful in her previous relationships.
"There have been times where I've been too much to handle for the men in my life," the Broadway star said.
"In fact, some of my previous relationships have ended because I haven't been needy enough.
"It's all too easy to attack WAGs for being gold-diggers but, believe me, there are plenty of men who need that type of girl," she added.
