No way back for the Redknapps as Louise and Jamie to divorce
JAMIE and Louise Redknapp are set to divorce after failing to save their 19-year marriage.
There is no going back amid reports Louise has filed court papers to sever ties once and for all.
It comes seven months after the former Eternal singer moved out of the family home she shared with her former footballer husband, 44.
‘They have come to a mutual agreement that divorce is the only option,’ claimed The Sun on Sunday.
The couple, who tied the knot in 1998, are expected to reach amicable terms over the custody of their two sons, nine-year-old Charley and six-year-old Beau.
Trouble brewed following 43-year-old Louise’s turn on Strictly Come Dancing last year — during which she ‘rediscovered’ her confidence.
In previous interviews, the mum-of-two has credited the BBC show for pulling her out of her ‘comfort zone’ as a ‘Stepford Wife’.
Louise said she felt ‘physically sick’ at the thought of not performing again and has since gone on to appear in a touring theatre production of Cabaret.
Jamie, worth a reported £15million, formerly played for Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur and has enjoyed a lucrative TV career with Sky Sports and A League Of Their Own since hanging up his boots.
