Louise Redknapp is single and ready to date again almost four years after her divorce from Jamie Redknapp. The singer recently spoke about finding a new partner and her mother’s fears on the matter, during a podcast appearance.
The 46-year-old said her mum was worried that men won’t ask her out if she is surrounded by male friends.
She was concerned that a potential suitor would think she already had a boyfriend.
Louise thought the notion was funny and pointed out that they were mostly work colleagues.
She shared the details of their conversation to James Barr and Dan Hudson on their A Gay And A Nongay podcast.
“My mum said to me, ‘I’m a bit concerned cause you go on holiday with all the boys. You go to dinner with all the boys.
“‘And I’m wondering when you’re sat there with eight boys, maybe men aren’t not coming up to ask you out because they think one of the boys is your boyfriend…’
“‘I’m just worried that no men will think you are single’,” Louise recalled.
Amused by her mother, she went on to share her response.
“First of all mum, people don’t come over and ask you out, and secondly I know where you are going with this but they are my friends and I don’t want to have to wear a T-shirt saying, ‘They’re all gay men!’”
“It just made me laugh…” she admitted to the hosts of the show.
Louise said the men were her work colleagues, who had become good friends.

Talking about the people she works with, the singer added: “Pretty much the whole of my team are gay men.
“I don’t think I have a straight man that I work with anywhere actually.
“And of course, they are all my friends too, because we work together, play together.
“We go on holiday together,” she explained.
Louise, who found fame in girl group Eternal before going solo in the 1990s, returned to the music industry after a 20 year break.
Her first single Stretch, from the album Heavy Love, was released two years ago this week.
She marked the milestone on Twitter today, in view of her 139,700 followers by sharing a clip of the video.
“Can’t believe ‘Stretch’ is 2 years old this week!!!
“So proud of this song and it being my first single back! Hope you all love it as much as I do,” she told fans.
