Denise Welch's fiancé has had a suspected heart attack.

The 'Loose Women' star's partner Lincoln Townley experienced chest pains and collapsed at their home in Alderley Edge, Cheshirebefore, and had to be rushed to hospital.

Denise, 54, went to Wythenshawe Hospital in south Manchester with the 39-year-old party planner and has been at his bedside throughout the ordeal.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Denise is at his bedside and is besides herself with worry. They were supposed to be getting married in the summer."

Last night (12.02.13), Lincoln was undergoing blood tests to determine what is wrong with him and what happened.

The couple - who got engaged last August - have been busy planning their wedding which is due to take place in Portugal in the summer.

Denise and Lincoln have even invited the former 'Celebrity Big Brother' winner's ex-husband Tim Healy - who she split from in 2012 after 24 years of marriage.

Last week, Denise revealed she had already planned her hen parties and has organised three separate celebrations.

She said: "I've got three hen parties planned - one in London, one in Manchester and one in Portugal."
