Denise Van Outen’s brother has avoided prison after being convicted of assaulting his wife during a violent rage.

The brother of the Loose Women star, Terence Outen, 47, is believed to have punched his partner Tanja, 40, and thrown her against a kitchen wall leaving her with a swollen head and headaches, The Daily Star reported. 

During the violent attack, which occurred last April, Outen was also said to have taken a broom to the back of Tanja’s head, leaving his partner fearing for her life.

A friend of Tanja’s told The Daily Star that Outen’s partner was thrown to the kitchen wall last year during the attack.  

The couple, who met in 2005, relocated to the Spanish island of Ibiza before Tanja decided to leave him in 2018 and move back to Britain with their child.

On the day of the attack, Tanja had invited Outen to visit their daughter when their conversation touched on Tanja meeting another man for a coffee and Outen became infuriated.

Tanja allegedly told her friend that she was hit and punched in the face and head during the incident and also had a broom put to the back of her head 

Following the attack, Tanja was rushed to hospital to receive treatment for her head injuries and Outen was arrested. 

After his trial last month, Outen, from Corringham, Essex, who admitted assault, was banned from going near his wife.

The older brother of Denise Van Outen was also issued with a two-year community order. 

In 2016, Outen’s sister Denise starred in the British independent film Indifferent in which she played a woman subject to domestic violence.

Speaking about her role she told The Mirror: ‘Reading and watching documentaries about domestic violence really opened my eyes to it – I wasn’t aware of the extent it goes on.

‘It made me go home and appreciate my life all the more. And it made me want to do something about it.’

The Loose Women star has also helped raise funds for the domestic violence charity Refuge and in 2016 took part in a 4.5 mile Bold is Beautiful campaign march through London which helped raise money for the charity. 

According to the anonymous friend, Outen’s former partner claimed that Denise has not been in contact with her since her brother’s conviction.

The friend continued that Tanja now wished to use her ordeal to help others who have been affected by domestic violence. 

MailOnline has contacted a representative of Denise Van Outen for comment.
