‘I can’t quite function as I’m so grief stricken, but I know he meant so much to so many people, even those who’d never met him.

‘I’ve never seen anyone fight to stay longer at a party than dad and last night was no different. He loved life and lived it to the full like no other.

She continued: ‘The nurses in Ward 6 at Durham University hospital will forever be in our hearts as they gave dad the most peaceful passing anyone could wish for. They adored him and he them. Heather, Helen, Lauren, Naz, Chloe, Graham, Debs to name but a few. We will NEVER forget you.

The Loose Women star shared a light-hearted video of the reunion to her Instagram page, with the pair enjoying a socially distance dance as they stood outside in the garden.

The father-daughter duo looked to be in good spirits despite the drizzle as they danced around to You to Me Are Everything by The Real Thing. 

Denise later uploaded the sweet clip alongside a caption that read: ‘Went to see my dad today. First time in 3 months. 

‘It was lovely @welchvin #singingthewrongwords [red heart emojis].’

Back in June Denise and Gloria Hunniford had a furious row over Covid-19 restrictions on Loose Women.

The actress, 63, criticised the ‘double standards’ of the UK government after being unable to travel in an ambulance with her elderly father.

After Denise blasted football fans for being able to gather in London, Gloria hit out: ‘Hang on just one second. Not anyone in the country doesn’t want lockdown to end and the double standards are very hard to understand.

‘However, with the Indian virus in 24 hours there were 11,000 people confirmed.’

But Denise hit back: ‘But there’s no escalation in deaths, Gloria. When do we move on? There have been flatline deaths since April.

‘A third of all councils across England and Wales haven’t suffered a fatality since April. Give people their jobs and livelihoods back.

‘We’ve got to move on from it. If vaccinations work, that’s what we’re doing. Not another month, another month.’

Reflecting on her own struggle to be with her father on the previous weekend, she went on: ‘I’m not allowed, double jabbed, to travel in an ambulance while this is going on with my father. 

‘We all saw the G7 photographs, the virtue-signalling people. It’s the double standards.

‘All of them there in masks at the beginning but immediately the cameras were off taking their masks off.’ 

Denise furiously hit out at the UK government after she was stopped from travelling with her elderly father in an ambulance, while football fans were allowed to line the streets.

The actress did not say what was wrong with her father but highlighted what she believes is hypocrisy from the government amid the coronavirus pandemic, saying it’s unfair certain freedoms have not returned as lockdown is eased, while revellers partied after England’s Euros 2020 match against Scotland on Friday.

Sharing a picture of a crowd of soccer fans on Instagram, Denise wrote: ‘Today, I wasn’t allowed to travel in an ambulance with my 84-year-old old frightened dad. Why?? 

‘There is no reason. I’ve tried to call out this hypocrisy for over a year. I came off Twitter as I was called a Covid denier. Nothing could be further from the truth. 

‘But I knew this would happen. I saw the utter hypocrisy when the government allowed the clap for carers to become a weekly carnival with emergency services lining the streets with their sirens blaring. 

‘Karaoke and wine parties, nurses gathering outside hugging. Bridges full of people clapping.

‘Meanwhile, two men were threatened with arrest as they tried to comfort their mother sat alone at her husbands funeral.’

The Loose Women star then accused ministers of being ‘in thrall’ to epidemiologist Neil Ferguson who resigned from his government position last year after repeatedly breaking lockdown guidelines to see his lover. 

Denise continued: ‘Why has there been zero transparency? During Brexit (remember that?) there were nightly debates but with Covid.. nothing. 

‘People’s voices silenced if they dared ask any questions. NHS workers (I’ve spent 10 weeks amongst them) not allowed to speak out about ANYTHING.

‘The NHS is in a mess. It has been for years and we are told that WE have to save it. We don’t. They have to save us. 

‘But the communication system within it is completely and utterly broken and that is the fault of the trust bosses. No one else. This has to stop. We need to be given our freedom back.

‘I’ve had my 2 vaccinations and I will make my own decisions about the risks I take. They have no right to continue to control us and let football rule the f…..g world.

‘I’m not a 5G, great reset believer. I believe it is total incompetence, fear, cover up and a desire not to lose these emergency powers they’ve been granted. 

‘I no longer want my life controlled by communist Susan Michie.’

In the video, her father could be seen paying tribute to singer Dolly Parton as he performed an entertaining dance.

Denise wrote: ‘Happy Fathers Day to the legend that is our dad, Vin Welch. 

‘This wonderful tribute to Dolly Parton is how dad dealt with the first lockdown. 

‘Sadly after a year of it his health started to deteriorate. But he is a fighter and we are so touched as a family with the support my posts about him have received.

‘Thinking of all those today who have dads that are poorly and those who have lost theirs.’

The death of her father comes a day after said she was ‘relieved’ after a man pleaded guilty to a ‘terrifying’ stalking campaign that saw him set her house on fire.

The television personality said her ordeal at the hands of Toraq Wyngard, 53, had been an ‘incredibly stressful time’.

Wyngard admitted stalking the Hollyoaks actress, causing serious alarm or distress, between September 18 last year and February 11, ahead of a trial at Chester Crown Court on Monday, a spokesman for Cheshire Police said.

He also pleaded guilty to charges of possession of a knife, criminal damage, and arson, after setting fire to a skip in the driveway of the Cheshire home Welch shares with husband Lincoln Townley, 48, the force said.

Welch said: ‘Lincoln and I are very relieved that Toraq Wyngard, otherwise known as Todd, has pleaded guilty.

‘This has been an incredibly terrifying and stressful time for me and our family.  

‘We are grateful to the fire service for their prompt action saving our house and to the police for their amazing vigilance and support.

‘Special thanks go to the Harm Reduction Unit assigned to us who have guided us through this horrible time every step of the way.’ 

Wyngard, of Cannon Street in Salford, Greater Manchester, was found near to the star’s home on September 19 last year when police were called to the fire, which spread from the skip to the garage attached to the property, police said.

When officers searched him, a knife was found in his backpack. 

Detective Sergeant Dave Thomason said: ‘Wyngard’s actions were causing Denise great distress and a trial would have further impacted on her, so I’m pleased that he has now pleaded guilty.

‘I’d like to thank Denise for her bravery in coming forward and I hope this reassures other victims that we do listen and take action against those who carry out such distressing crimes in our communities.

‘Our Specialist Victim Advocates in the Harm Reduction Unit have been supporting Denise and her husband throughout – providing practical support, safety planning and advocacy.

‘The Specialist Victims’ Advocates are currently providing direct support to a number of stalking victims across Cheshire in highly complex stalking cases, and I hope seeing this outcome will give others going through a similar ordeal the confidence to come forward and get the support and advice they need to end their nightmare.

‘We will listen and we will help you get the right support in your case, just as we have done with Denise. Don’t suffer in silence, call us on 101 or report it via our website.’

Wyngard is due to be sentenced on October 26 after the case was adjourned for psychiatric reports.
