Basildon's Denise Van Outen had comedian Mo Gilligan cracking up as she did a "top tier" impression of Eastenders' Pat Butcher on the return of The Big Breakfast.

Denise appeared alongside none other than Barry Evans himself, Shaun Williamson, as she made a guest appearance in the revival's very first episode this morning.

The Celebrity Gogglebox star presented the original morning show alongside Johnny Vaughan between 1997 and 2001.

It had been off air for nearly 20 years until the recent one-off special last year.

This morning the first episode of the Channel 4 revival aired.

Strictly Come Dancing 2021 finalist AJ Odudu and comedian Mo Gilligan are presenting the show's return.

And Van Outen left funnyman Gilligan laughing this morning as she portrayed Eastenders legend Pat Butcher in an "argument" with fellow show icon Barry Evans.

On the show's return, Van Outen previously told the Sun: "I spent some of the happiest times of my career on The Big Breakfast and I’m so excited to be popping in to see the brilliant AJ and Mo for the first show of the new series.

"I can’t think of a better way to kick-start my Saturday."
