British TV presenter Denise Van Outen is devoting every hour of her day to her family in a desperate bid to save her marriage. The blonde beauty wed musical theatre actor Lee Mead in 2009 and they have a daughter, two-year-old Betsy, but recent reports suggest the romance is on the rocks due to their busy schedules. Van Outen was a runner-up on U.K. TV show Dancing On Ice last year (12) and recently completed a nationwide tour for the popular series, while Mead has been attending auditions in Los Angeles during the busy pilot season. The couple's relationship has become strained as a result, but van Outen has vowed to do all she can to save her marriage. She tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "Yes, he's home. We've had loads of time apart while he's been doing pilot season in L.A. I've been honest about this, in that when you have loads of time apart it's difficult because you start getting on with your own lives. "So, obviously he's back and as a family we're spending lots of time together, because that's what you have to do." Despite her determination to avoid the divorce courts, van Outen confesses she is reluctant to relocate to the U.S. if her husband lands a role Stateside, adding, "I don't personally want to uproot and move over there because Betsy is just starting pre-school. But loads of people do the same... If you have kids you just have to work it out what is best for you."
