Basildon's Denise Van Outen has shared her Oscar-worthy celebrations thrown to mark her daughter's 11th birthday. 

The TV star uploaded a host of pictures of the celebrations for Betsy at the weekend on her Instagram page. 

Denise had organised a cinema-themed bash, which featured VIP treatment for Betsy inside in her very own teepee in the garden of their Essex home. 

She also had a personalised walk of fame star.

Inside the teepee were beds, cushions, a popcorn maker, LED displays and a Hollywood clapper board.

The garden was meanwhile covered with dozens of red, black and gold balloons, some of which were shaped into the number 11.

Denise also gave Betsy a multicoloured birthday cake, which was inspired by Jacqueline Wilson's children's book, with character Tracey Beaker taking centre stage.

Denise has recently got herself back on stage and has been working on Some Girl I Used To Know, which she co-wrote with Terry Ronald.

The musical has been directed by actress Tamzin Outhwaite and Denise is the only star in the performance.

Speaking last month, she said it was "lovely" to get back into acting and singing following the pandemic. 

Some Girl I Used To Know tells the story of Stephanie, a successful lingerie designer who wrestles with a romantic dilemma while she is alone in a luxury hotel room.

It originally debuted in the West End in 2014.
