( FF ) - Denise Van Outen prefers kissing girls.
The blonde beauty believes women make better kissers because they are "softer" and have no "stubble", but insists she is not interested in becoming a lesbian.
Denise - who had to kiss a woman for her role in a theatre production of musical 'Rent' - said: "I played Maureen the bisexual so I got to kiss girls and run around on stage grabbing t**s. A whole new experience for me.
"Kissing girls is much softer. You don't get all that stubbly chin thing. T**s are not doing it for me though. People are always shocked because they expect me to be really naughty, but I've never fancied a woman and it has just reconfirmed to me that I only love boys."
Denise recently started dating 'Any Dream Will Do' winner Lee Mead, who she first met in her role as a judge on the BBC talent show.
She said: "We're having a lot of fun but it's too early to say where the relationship will go. It's only been a few weeks!"
