Louise Redknapp confirms Jamie Redknapp split: 'I became a Stepford wife'

Louise Redknapp confirms Jamie Redknapp split: 'I became a Stepford wife'”

Jamie Redknapp (L) and Louise Redknapp attend a private view of "Julian Schnabel: Every Angel Has A Dark Side" in aid of Chickenshed at The Dairy Art Centre on April 24, 2014 in London, England.

"I know he's trying to understand that I need to do this".

Louise then spoke about ex-husband Jamie, "It's so hard because I love him". Not only did the stunning songstress admit to living apart from her football star husband at the moment, but also candidly discussed her life before Strictly Come Dancing as she confessed to feeling like a "Stepford Wife".

"I became a sort of Stepford Wife, wanting to be flawless at it", she told the paper. She admitted that it was hard to watch Jamie's profile soar on TV as her own career was on hold. Daisy is a mate who is an incredible cheerleader at a time when I've needed a lot of support.

"Standing by and watching Jamie become this entertainment star was pretty hard", she explained.

She said it was only when she signed up for Strictly a year ago that she realised that she wanted to go back to performing and felt "physically sick" at the thought of not doing so.

"She's a breath of fresh air because she has absolutely no filter".

She went on to add that a "sweeping staircase and designer handbag" aren't what makes her happy and that "being fulfilled, being true to yourself, following your passion, they are the things that make you happy".

Louise said she now needed to do something with her life.

Trying to make the chat as positive as possible, Louise continued: "I don't mean that in a negative way, it's obviously unbelievable but there's a part of me that secretly enjoys just being Louise".

During her time with Strictly, she admitted that she'd made a friend in Daisy Lowe, who was also taking part in the dancing competition. "And that is when the s*** hit the fan".

She added: "I'm a 42-year-old woman". Louise gave up performing when she had Charley and dedicated herself to being a mum.

Louise and Jamie - parents to two kids Charley, 12, and Beau, nine - have been married for 19 years.

"For me, going back to work has been something that has been a real saviour".

Louise is still wearing her wedding ring and a recent appearance on This Morning only saw her reveal the pair were "putting the children first".
