Denise Van Outen's ex Eddie Boxshall has sung her praises in a gushing tribute on International Women's day, despite their split earlier this year.
The pair's split came amid allegations that Eddie had been unfaithful to her, and last week he broke down into tears as he spoke of his "rough couple of months" in an emotional video.
And proving that he still greatly admired his ex, the 47 year old rang in International Women's Day by sharing a snap of stunning actress Denise to his Instagram Story.
"Regardless of us sadly going our separate ways, I have to acknowledge that in our 7 and a half year relationship, I witnessed the hardest working and most driven woman in her business and amazing mummy to Betsy," he wrote.
Eddie added the caption: "#neverstops #utmostrespect" as well as "#internationalwomensday".
Days earlier, Eddie shared an emotional message with fans as he broke down in tears in a new video.
He told his followers: "I've had a really bad time over the last couple of months.
"These aren't tears of upset, they're tears of joy because one of my best pals has just been given the all clear for his cancer.
"And this puts everything that anyone goes through into perspective."
Eddie added: "You've got one life, stay healthy and live it. Dan, love you boy. Get in there!"
In the video caption, Eddie expanded on his video message, writing: "Whatever happens in life just remember all we have is our health and nothing else matters !!
"I've personally had my own problems over the last few months and dealing with them the best I can, but the news I received a short while ago puts my life into perspective ( which I knew but even more so now ) and it's all about making life a healthy and happy one !!!
"All I can say to anyone OUR HEALTH IS OUR WEALTH!!!! We have one life only so live it !! Wishing you all health and happiness".
The Celebrity Gogglebox favourites announced their split in January after seven years together.
Speaking about the split, Denise posted to her Instagram account, with the caption: "Over the past couple of months, there has been much speculation regarding my relationship with Eddie.
"It saddens me to confirm that we are no longer a couple. I had to make the difficult decision not to continue in our relationship.
"I will always treasure the good times we spent together, and the memories made.
"We ask that you please respect our privacy at this time, especially for our children."
