The DJ, 47, took to his Instagram Story to post a beaming snap of presenter Denise, also 47, – calling her ‘hard working’, ‘driven’ and an ‘amazing mummy’ to her daughter Betsy, 11.
Last month he split from Denise amid cheating claims, and is reportedly now trying to ‘win back’ and recently revealed he’s lost a stone due to stress and anxiety since they broke up.

Eddie wrote in his post to her: ‘Regardless of us sadly going our separate ways I have to acknowledge that in our wonderful 7 and a half year relationship I witnessed the hardest working and most driven woman in her business and amazing mummy to Betsy #neverstops #upmostrespect’.
Denise looked beautiful in the picture as she posed with her radiant complexion in the back of a golf buggy.
She is yet to acknowledge his post on social media and was busy all day filming Steph’s Packed Lunch.

It comes after last week Eddie broke down in tears as he celebrated a close friend getting the all-clear from cancer.
He took to his Instagram Story where he was visibly emotional and struggling to talk as he told how the news ‘put everything into perspective’, after he had struggled with his ‘own problems over the last few months’.
Speaking about his friend Dan’s health update he said: ‘I have had a really bad time over the last couple of months and these aren’t tears of sadness they are tears of joy, because one of best friends has just been given the all-clear for his cancer.
‘This puts everything that anyone goes through into perspective, you have one life, stay healthy and live it, Dan love you, get in there.’
He then wrote in the caption alongside: ‘Whatever happens in life just remember all we have is our health and nothing else matters!!
‘I’ve personally had my own problems over the last few months and dealing with them the best I can but the news I received a short while ago puts my life into perspective ( which I knew but even more so now ) and it’s all about making life a healthy and happy one!!!
‘All I can say to anyone OUR HEALTH IS OUR WEALTH!!!! We have one life only so live it !! Wishing you all health and happiness.’

It came after earlier this year Eddie split from TV personality Denise – which he recently said has caused him to lose a stone due to stress and anxiety.
Denise allegedly discovered Eddie’s infidelities, which included him going on dates with other women as well as the claims of phone sex.
It was said Eddie has been ‘pulling out all the stops to save their seven-year relationship’ and is ‘staying nearby’ their Essex home in a room above a friend’s pub, in the hopes of being allowed back.
However, Denise is adamant that their romance is over and is ‘determined to move on’ following on from her heartache, according to reports.

A source told The Sun: ‘Eddie is convinced he can win Denise back and isn’t willing to throw away all of their memories together. He’s pulling out all the stops to save their relationship.
‘He feels terrible and pained that she’s hurting. He is desperate to gain her forgiveness and knows there are a lot of deep-rooted feelings involved. He’s not willing to accept it’s over for good.
‘He thinks they’re the perfect match for each other and knows he was foolish. Eddie is keeping his distance for now and wants to give her the space and respect she needs. But he’s staying nearby in the hope he might be allowed back…
‘He’s staying in a room above a mate’s pub.’

But sources close to the former Dancing On Ice star told the publication that she had already ‘made up her mind’ and ‘determined to move on and very unlikely’ to take him back after his actions.
Confirming their split in an Instagram post, Denise wrote: ‘Over the past couple of months, there has been much speculation regarding my relationship with Eddie.
‘It saddens me to confirm that we are no longer a couple. I had to make the difficult decision not to continue in our relationship.
‘I will always treasure the good times we spent together, and the memories made. We ask that you please respect our privacy at this time, especially for our children.’
