The actress, who appeared on the last series of Dancing On Ice, said on the Sweat, Snot and Tears podcast, “We’ve been talking a lot lately. We have been traveling as friends for a variety of reasons for years …
“A lot of my friends, that has never happened before, but I think only ours had combined career and work. If it’s a work thing, it’s different.”
“We have started talking. It would be nice to do something to celebrate the 30th anniversary.”
There have been rumors that Channel 4 is planning to revive The Big Breakfast to mark the milestone.
Last summer, TV bosses reportedly started working on plans to bring them back for a one-off revival hosted by comedian Mo Gilligan sometime in 2021.
Denise previously told The mirror She has high hopes for a reunion: “It would be nice to do something.
“Johnny and I have had a rocky relationship over the years for a variety of reasons, and weirdly, we wrote a lot in Lockdown.
“These situations make you reflect and realize some of the silly little things and arguments you have that are just not worth it.”
The show started in 1992 and was originally hosted by Chris Evans and Gaby Roslin.
Denise and Johnny joined in 1997 and became one of the most popular partnerships in the show’s history.
They worked together on The Big Breakfast until 1998 and then returned for another stay from 2000 to 2001 before dropping out.
Other presenters who have worked on the show over the years have included Zoe Ball, Kelly Brook, Donna Air, and Richard Bacon.
There were also segments with the dolls Zig and Zag, Mark Lamarr and Johnny Vegas.
The show was tinned in 2002 and included a tribute to Prince Charles that aired shortly before the end of the last show.
