CSS Question

Outlook adding whitespace below images or more padding

So made a newsletter for a client, and just 1 slight little bug i have now on Outlook 2007,2010,2013,2016 assuming its cause these use Word as the rendering engine.

Basically i have a 2x2 grid each item being 50% so all sitting nice and snug but on outlook it looks like its either adding whitespace below the images or adding more padding to my text boxes (see screenshot)

Here is my HTML for that section:



<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="border-collapse: collapse;">
<tbody>

<tr>
<td width="50%" background="#8f5470" bgcolor="#8f5470" style="padding-left:45px; padding-right:45px; padding-top:20px; padding-bottom:20px;">
<h4 style="Margin: 0; Margin-bottom: 10px; color: #ffffff; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 27px; font-weight: normal; line-height: 1.3; margin: 0; margin-bottom: 10px; padding: 0; text-align: left; word-wrap: normal;">we take care of every detail</h4>
<p style="Margin: 0; Margin-bottom: 10px; color: #ffffff; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 17px; font-weight: normal; line-height: 1.3; margin: 0; margin-bottom: 10px; padding: 0; text-align: left;">Everything from design and planning through to manufacturing and installation, and where required assisting you to appoint a builder for the required preparatory works.</p>

<td width="50%" class="show-for-large"><img src="http://aproposconservatories.co.uk/wp-content/themes/apropos_new/images/newsletter/detail-img.jpg" style="-ms-interpolation-mode: bicubic; clear: both; display: block; max-width: 100%; outline: none; text-decoration: none; width: auto;"></td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance.

I have added mso-padding-alt: 0px 45px; to parent td of the text.
