Denise Welch says she's 'still dizzy' after jokey video claimed she joined son Matty Healy on stage

Hollyoaks star Denise Welch has said she's 'still dizzy' after a post appeared online claiming to show her spinning over the crowd at one of The 1975's gigs.
The actor usually cheers on her son from the crowd, but this weekend a video appeared online claiming that she'd actually taken to the stage to join Healy and become part of the show.
The video was filmed by someone in the crowd at a gig, and showed a woman with short blonde hair, much like Welch, dressed in a sparkly bodysuit and attached to some cables.
'Welch' could be seen shouting to the crowd before she was picked up by the cables and started spinning like an acrobat all the way across the huge venue.
Alongside the video, a caption read: "Matty Healey’s [sic] mother joined the band on stage at tonight’s The 1975 gig."
It quickly caught the attention of Twitter users and has been viewed more than 1.9 million times since being posted on Saturday (10 June), with the internet absolutely loving the post because, while Welch is no doubt a supportive mum, she's not one who flies over the crowd at The 1975 gigs. At least, not yet.
It doesn't take much to realise that the footage wasn't taken at a gig for The 1975 at all - all you have to do is put the sound on, and you'll hear Pink's track 'So What' playing out.
Some people were still briefly fooled, though, with one viewer responding: "Why did i believe this for a second, IM YELLING."
Another joked: "Congrats you win the internet today."
I can confirm that Pink is actually the one featured in the video, which was taken amid her ongoing Summer Carnival tour.
True to tour's name, Pink really puts on a show as she performs incredible stunts throughout the gig, all the while belting out her popular tracks to adoring fans. And to think, I can barely even get out a sentence after walking up a flight of stairs.
But while it might not be Welch in the video, the actor was all too happy to join in with the joke as she responded to the post on Twitter, writing: "I’m still dizzy!!!"
Maybe the video will give her some inspiration for the next time she watches her son live? We can only hope.
