It came after Ent Daily reported that Ben Foden, Thom Evans and Levi Davis are reportedly being lined up to join the celebrity singing show as a boy band.

If she were to land the new role, it would mark something of a turn in fortunes for Louise.

The star recently faced a £1k fine after reportedly running a red light in her Range Rover.

And, back in the summer of 2017, she split from her former footballer husband Jamie Redknapp, amid claims she had grown close to her Strictly Come Dancing parter Kevin Clifton.
