Louise Redknapp admits she ‘lost her identity’ during 19 year marriage to Jamie

They were granted a divorce at the end of last year, and now Louise Redknapp has spoken out about why her marriage to former footballer Jamie broke down.

The famous couple were plagued by rumours of a split for months following Louise’s appearance on Strictly Come Dancing, and in September 2017 she confirmed their separation.

Explaining why they decided to get a divorce after 19 years of marriage, 43-year-old Louise said, “Like most people as you start to get older, other things take over. You have a family to look after, you’re running a household, your career path changes.”

She added to the Daily Express, “When that happens, it’s easy to start losing that strong sense of identity that was once your biggest priority.”

Before her marriage to television pundit Jamie, she had a hugely successful career in the chart topping RnB girl group, Eternal, before leaving to pursue a solo career.
