You’ve got to feel sorry for Louise Redknapp.
Speculation has been rife about her relationship with husband Jamie all week, with cameras being pointed in her weary face.
Although neither has yet commented, it has been reported that their 19-year marriage is on the rocks – and Jamie has allegedly told family and friends that it was indeed over.
But now in a new twist, Daisy Lowe, Louise’s mate from Strictly, has been dragged into the mess and accused of wrecking their supposedly strong marriage.
“Louise had become very close to her new friends from Strictly – they formed a real bond,” a source has told the Sun.
“That became even stronger on the tour where Louise became inseparable from Daisy.
“Louise ended up spending a lot more time away from home with Daisy and rediscovering her youth. ”
The source added: “That was when Jamie first started confiding in very close friends that his marriage was in trouble.”
Although Louise laughed off speculation about her marriage problems a few months ago, she has been in Spain with sons Charley and Beau – without Jamie – this week.
Jamie remained in the UK where he cancelled a pre-planned day of interviews to promote his Sky One panel show A League of their Own so that he didn’t have to be quizzed about his marriage.
Back in April, Louise said that she was a bit tired of being always known as “Jamie’s wife” and wanted to be known as Louise again.
“I was Jamie Redknapp’s wife for ten years. That’s what I was known as,” she told John Bishop on his chat show. “I don’t mean that in a negative way, it’s obviously amazing but there’s a part of me that secretly enjoys just being Louise.”
A source close to Louise says that she and Jamie are trying to work through their problems.
“Louise and Jamie are expected to meet up an discuss their future. Their priority, as always, are their two children.”
