Newly divorced Louise Redknapp wows fans on the first night of her tour!

She's getting her life back on track after years of feeling "like a Stepford Wife".

Louise Redknapp hit the stage on the first night of her tour last night as she relaunched her music career after 15 years away to concentrate on marriage and kids.

Newly single Louise divorced husband Jamie in December after 19 years of marriage, and wasted no time in getting her music career back on track.

In December she performed her first gig in 15 years at Under the Bridge in London, something she described as “such a special moment”, and now she’s touring the UK reminding fans of her many hits.
