On Sunday, Denise Welch was the target of a death hoax.
Tweets saying the Loose Women actress had died began spreading on X, previously Twitter, towards the end of the weekend.
Denise, 65, responded by going to X personally to authenticate her existence.
The star, who is the mum of The 1975 frontman Matty Healy, wrote: ‘I’m alive and well and about to watch the jungle. Thanks for your concern.’
Denise also sent three emojis with uncomfortable expressions.
It comes after Denise claimed in a recent interview with the Guardian that she pooed herself while wearing cream trousers last year and didn’t realise it.
When asked about her most embarrassing moment, Denise didn’t hold back with the honest truth.
‘S******g myself in New York last November,’ she replied, simply.
‘I was wearing cream trousers. We were going to see my son Matty and his band, the 1975, at Madison Square Garden, and I was walking through the streets, enjoying the sunshine, pretending I was in some kind of video – throwing my hat into the New York sky like Mary Tyler Moore.
‘I saw a couple of people turn and look at me. Now, although I’m not famous in New York, whenever Matty’s there I do get recognised as his mum, so I’m smiling and waving at them.
‘I went back to the hotel room and bent over to get something out of the suitcase, and my husband said: “Do you realise you’ve shat yourself?”‘
