In October, Denise told Studio 10 she had been put ‘in a situation where she shouldn’t have been’ when she fell over and injured herself.
‘I wasn’t playing silly buggers. It was 3.30 in the morning and a segment I was doing shouldn’t have even been considered,’ she said.
‘I did it, and I shouldn’t have. I’ve learned a terrible lesson to learn at my age, but it has changed my thinking – again!’

‘[Denise] was playing up to the crowd and performing her infamous chicken dance on a flat part of the course,’ he claimed.
