Denise Welch, 60, vows to still wear bikinis in her NINETIES

Denise Welch has vowed that she'll still wear bikinis when she reaches her nineties, after recreating an iconic bikini snap.

The veteran actress told The Daily Mirror that she wanted to celebrate her recent weight loss by recreating a slightly less flattering snap alongside her transformed figure in a social media post on Wednesday.

Denise also revealed that ditching the booze helped her slim down to a size 12, and despite getting into the later years of her life, cares little about whether flaunting her figure embarrasses her two sons Matt and Louis.

She said: 'I don't care about the knockers – no pun intended. I'm not going to have anyone tell me that I can't wear a bikini at 60. I've got a wobbly arse, my boobs aren't in the right place.

'I've got bumps and lumps and a tummy and I've had two children. But I don't look bad for an old bird.

'I'm proud of how I look at 60 and I'm not trying to look 30. That's the message I'm trying to deliver. So if I'm still getting my kit off at 90, so be it. Sorry children!'

Denise has spoken openly about her recent battles with depression and anxiety, choosing to numb her pain with drugs and alcohol.

But in 2012 she lost a staggering two stone, and in the ensuing years has quit drinking and said her mental health has never been better. 

The Loose Women panellist was married to actor Tim Healy for 24 years before going onto tie the knot with Lincoln Townley in 2013, but she said they remain on good terms and even spend Christmas together. 

Denise also touched on her son Matt Healy's own recent battle with drug addiction, after The 1975 singer spent seven weeks at a residential rehabilitation facility, saying that he's 'doing brilliantly.'

It comes after she struggled to hold back tears while speaking about Matt's struggles while on the Loose Women panel last week, saying she feels guilty that his rock n' roll upbringing may have sparked the heroin addiction. 

She said: 'I went to Los Angeles to visit him and he told me last year he was going to take himself to rehab and he needed help with addiction. It was hard but I was thrilled and touched he told me, I was extremely proud he told me.

'I've had issues with drugs in the past. My 17 year old has grown up in a sober household, but I do have shame about some of the things Matt has had to see.

'I'm not saying I was staggering around with a bottle of vodka in hand, but if I could redo parts of Matty's childhood I would do that.'
