Instead, the ex Eternal singer and mum of two has been focusing her attentions on rehearsing for her upcoming role in a touring production of Cabaret: The Musical.

Louise, 42, shared two photos to Instagram showing her in rehearsals for the musical.

In one snap, the star is seen clad in a pink hoodie and black leggings, sitting on the floor of a stage and beaming at the camera.

Referencing her stint in Strictly, she captioned the photo: “Latin shoes back on !!!!!!”

The second image showed Louise surrounded by her co-stars and was captioned: “Cabaret rehearsals in full swing. [Love] the fabulous cast. Thank you for all being pretty amazing !!!!!!”

According to The Sunday People, Louise reportedly wants to set the wheels in motion to divorce former footballer Jamie, her husband of 18 years.

A source alleged: “Louise wants to put steps in place to end her ­marriage to Jamie by the end of year.”

The insider added: “They are no closer to getting back together since when they first split in July.

“Louise now wants to agree a timetable with Jamie to bring the marriage to an end.”

Of course, none of that has actually been confirmed by Louise or Jamie

It’s just the latest unconfirmed claim about Louise and Jamie relationship that has been floating around in recent months, amid allegations their romance was struck by the infamous Strictly Come Dancing curse.

It was alleged Louise rediscovered her love of performing and a new independence while competing on the show, which put a strain on her marriage.

However, neither Louise nor Jamie has ever commented on the claims so it’s hard to know just what is going on.

In July it was rumoured they’d officially split but were keeping silent for the sake of their young children Charley, 12, and eight-year-old Beau.

It was also suggested the couple were hoping they could rekindle the romance and make their marriage work.

A magazine even claimed in August that the pair hadn’t mentioned the ‘divorce’ word and Jamie, 44, was hopeful Louise would return home to him once she’d enjoyed a taste of independence.

“The word divorce hasn’t even been uttered between Jamie and Louise,” claimed a source.

“Jamie is adamant he’ll be there when Louise realises the grass isn’t greener. He’s telling friends: ‘I’ll wait for my wife to come home – Louise needs this time’.”

Until Louise and Jamie decide to speak, it’s unclear what is going on.

When reports of a split surfaced back in April, Louise brushed it off in an interview with The Mirror.

“It was surreal. Me and Jamie had just been out for dinner at Zuma, and were in bed together when we saw on Sky that our marriage was in trouble,” she said.

“We’re great – don’t worry about us, everything’s fine.”

She’ll play Sally Bowles until December.

Good luck, Louise!
