Denise Van Outen is back in shape

London: Actress Denise Van Outen has managed to get back into shape just five months after she gave birth to her baby daughter.

Van Outen, 36, who is married to stage star Lee Mead, flaunted her post-pregnancy figure while on holiday with daughter Betsy in Dubai, the Daily Mail reported.

She was pictured showing off a new bobbed hair cut as she played with Betsy, who was sensibly covered up from the sun in a white cotton dress and flowered sun hat.

The actress, who had earlier said that she would resist the celebrity trend of trying to lose weight the moment she had a baby, got her shape back after following a careful eating and exercise regime.

She has also kept fit throughout her pregnancy with the help of personal trainer Nicki Waterman.
