Louise Redknapp has shared her regret that taking part in Strictly Come Dancing led to the end of her marriage.
The singer, 46, took part in the 2016 edition of the BBC dance show before divorcing former footballer Jamie Redknapp a year later.
In her brand new book, You’ve Got This, louise said she regretted the timing of the show and belives she might still be married if she hadn’t competed.
She revealed: “If I’d done the show four years earlier, this wouldn’t have happened. I wouldn’t have walked away from my marriage.”
The Eternal star reached the final with her professional dance partner Kevin Clifton.
Louise ended her marriage to Jamie after 19 years in 2017.
She went on to say that being part of the series “wasn’t worth putting anyone I loved or love through the heartache.”
The mum-of-two continued: “I still wish I’d done things differently because I feel like I hurt a lot of people and I’ll always be sorry for that.
“I felt like certain people had my back, and, in hindsight this wasn’t really the case. I was so scared about going back to normal life and losing what I’d achieved on the show.”
Louise shares sons Beau, 12, and Charley, 16, with the footballer.
Her confession comes after it was reported that Louise is now ready to find love again.
A source explained: “She’s serious about moving on, and has said that clearing all that toxic energy from the past has made her realise she could see herself getting married again.”
“She’d like another chance at getting her happy ending,” they continued to heat.
“Lou says speaking about her marriage has really helped to heal her. Since releasing her book, her energy has completely shifted.
“She doesn’t want to be forever defined by her failed marriage, or seem as though she can’t let go of the past.”
Meanwhile, Jamie has been in a relationship with model Frida Andersson-Lourie since August 2020.
