Louise Redknapp: Me and Jamie still best friends despite split
THEY may have called time on their 19-year marriage but Louise Redknapp says ex-husband Jamie is still her best friend.
The singer and former Strictly Come Dancing star and the retired footballer called it a day in 2017 in what Louise described as a ‘really tough split’.
But the 44-year-old told radio show Heart Breakfast: ‘He’s my best friend. It’s been really tough but things happen and yeah, I saw him yesterday and it was all good.
‘We had school meetings and stuff, like you do, so all good.’
Louise, who has two children with her ex-husband, said she hates Valentine’s Day now and that she will spend the day with her friend in a restaurant.
The former Eternal star also told of how she and her sons, Charley and Beau, would watch Jamie’s father Harry on TV when he was in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! last year.
She said: ‘My kids were going crazy laughing! We all watched him every night.
‘I just don’t think they could believe it was him, because he just doesn’t do things like that! So they’re like “Is Pop really gonna eat that? Is Pop really gonna do that?”.
‘The kids were super proud of him, and for a whole three-and-a-half weeks that was our nightly viewing, obviously.’
