Denise Welch kisses Michael Caine's shoulder during double date

Denise Welch, 63, kisses Sir Michael Caine’s shoulder as she enjoys double date with actor, 89, and his wife Shakira, 75… after her artist husband Lincoln Townley, 49, painted him

Denise Welch planted a giant kiss on Sir Michael Caine’s shoulder as they enjoyed a night out at The Ivy Chelsea Garden in London on Thursday night.

The Loose Women panellist, 63, commanded attention in an eye-popping yellow top featuring a quirky print of a woman wearing a blue bob wig and sunglasses.

She was joined by her husband Lincoln Townley, 49, for a double date with the actor, 89, and his wife Shakira, 75 at the swanky celebrity hotspot.

Denise and Lincoln became friends with Sir Michael after Lincoln painted the movie icon’s portrait in 2016, before he dubbed the artist ‘the next Andy Warhol’.

Michael left with the restaurant still with the aid of his walking stick, while ensuring to look dapper in a dark grey jacket which he layered above a light blue shirt.

Shakira looked elegant in a black blazer and matching trousers which she teamed up with a white shirt and a deep red handbag.

The Guyanese former actress painted her lips a deep shade of raspberry and held hands with her husband as they strolled down the King’s Road in SW3.

They were joined by Michael’s daughter Dominique, 66, from his first marriage to Patricia Haines between 1954 and 1962. 

The Dirty Rotten Scoundrels legend attended Lincoln’s art exhibition at Somerset House back in June 2016.

Sir Michael clearly has an affinity for Lincoln’s work, and the pair conversed in the exhibition space with the latter talking the star through his work.

They then made their way to the side of Michael’s portrait for a snap which saw The Italian Job star flash a broad grin.

The colourful painting consists of Michael at two differing stages of his career: the beginning and the present day.

According to Lincoln’s website: ‘The present Michael Caine shares the canvas with his younger self, yet it is the older man that dominates the painting as the young actor looms as a vanishing presence over his shoulder.

‘The effect is to create a sense of the accumulated skill and wisdom of one of the greatest creative lives of the twentieth century as we see the depth and power of the man behind the many roles he has made his own.’

Michael and Shakira’s love affair has proven to be one of the longest marriages in showbiz, after tying the knot in Las Vegas in 1973.

Their relationship began when the Dark Knight star spotted the actor in a British television advertisement for Maxwell House coffee in 1971.

The couple share daughter, Natasha while the Alfie star has another daughter Dominique from his previous marriage with actress Patricia.
