The rubbing shoulders nature of the showbiz world means that all sorts of unlikely bonds can be formed – take Mark Ronson marrying Meryl Streep’s daughter, or Goldie dating Bjork, or Pete Davidson starting a romance with Sally Webster’s daughter.
But we’ve got to say, Denise Welch being the de facto mother-in-law of FKA twigs could be our favourite of the genre.
FKA twigs has been dating Denise’s son Matty Healy of the 1975 for nearly two years and things look pretty serious between the pair.
So much so, that Denise, 63, is leaving comments on the singer’s Instagram claiming she’s taught her everything she knows about yoga.
Peak mum behaviour.
FKA twigs, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett, showcased her incredible flexibility in a picture which saw her lying on her stomach and pointing her left foot towards her head.

The 33-year-old captioned the snap: ‘Close the door’, with fans marvelling at her technique.
Denise, however, took full credit, commenting: ‘I taught you well’, followed by clapping emojis.
In fairness to the 63-year-old, she has been doing yoga and stretching for years, having launched a fitness DVD in 2004 based on the Lotte Berk method of keeping fit – which is similar to yoga and pilates.
So perhaps the Coronation Street star has been teaching FKA twigs a few moves in between family gatherings.
FKA twigs was first rumoured to be dating Matty – Denise’s son with Benidorm star Tim Healy – back in Christmas 2019, when they were pictured together at a friend’s festive party.
The Two Weeks singer then joined Denise and Matty at RuPaul’s DragCon UK in January 2020, but in an effort to keep the relationship a secret, Denise chopped FKA twigs out of their group snap with drag queen Vinegar Strokes.
Chocolate singer Matty, 32, was previously in a relationship with Australian model Gabriella Brooks, until their break-up in August 2019 after four years together.
FKA twigs was engaged to Robert Pattinson before their split in 2017, and went on to date her Honey Boy co-star Shia LaBeouf.
She is currently suing the actor, having accused him of sexual battery and ‘relentless’ abuse – allegations LaBeouf has denied.Credit: Original article published here.
