Louise divorced Jamie Redknapp in 2017 after almost two decades of marriage, and previously admitted she hasn’t even entertained the thought of dating someone new, because her sons - Charley, 16, and Beau, 11 - aren’t keen on the idea.
She said: “I don’t think I’m ever going to be able to have a boyfriend because, first of all, the 16-year-old is like, ‘Well, how they’re going to get past me?’
“Sometimes I go, ‘How would you feel if I went on a date?’ He’s like, ‘I don’t want to talk about it’.
“It’s not looking positive for me when it comes to love life.
“Still haven’t been on a date! Lockdown is not helping me in the dating world.”
And Louise admitted she still “struggles on a daily basis” with emotions from the fallout of her split, and doesn’t think it will “ever get easier” for her to cope with her divorce.
She told The Sun newspaper: “I’m by no means in this amazing place; if I said I was, I’d be lying.
“I’ve still have so many struggles on a daily basis because I don’t know if someone ever gets over getting divorced after 20 years.
“I don’t think that will ever get easier for someone like me.
“I don’t want to feel hurt, I don’t want to feel worried about everyone I know and love, I don’t want to worry that everything I do will have a negative effect.”
Jamie is now dating Swedish model Frida Andersson-Lourie.
