Speaking to The Sun, 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?”‘ 

Louise continued: ‘Still haven’t been on a date! Lockdown is not helping me in the dating world.’  

The mother-of-two also revealed how her eldest Charles is keen to avoid the topic of her love life and the possibility of her going on dates.

Meanwhile Jamie is currently dating Swedish model Frida Andersson-Lourie, according to reports.  

The former Eternal singer also explained how she is not in an ‘amazing place’, adding: ‘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.’ 

In September Jamie revealed that his celebrity pals tease him about the so-called Strictly curse, nearly three years after his divorce from his wife of 19 years, Louise.

The BBC series was blamed for the demise of his relationship with the singer as they split shortly after competing on the series with professional dancer Kevin Clifton in late 2016.

However Louise has always denied claims that anything happened between her and Kevin in the past.  

It comes after Louise revealed her divorce from Jamie gave her the courage to restart her music career. 

The singer had taken a break from her career after the birth of her sons but after splitting from the sportsman revealed she gave music another shot because she felt like she had ‘nothing to lose.’

Speaking on Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s podcast Spinning Plates, Louise said that she is glad her sons see her doing something she loves, rather than sitting at home being ‘half herself’. 

Referring to her divorce from Jamie Redknapp in 2017 after 19 years of marriage, she said: ‘I suppose it took something quite big to happen in my life to think I’ve got nothing more to lose. 

‘Like I feel like I’ve lost such a lot anyway that what’s my musical dignity when I’ve lost all of this anyway? 

‘It took something sad and big in my life to maybe give me the courage to go, “oh, I’ll just give it a go, what’s the worst that can happen?'”

She added: ‘I’m pleased I did it and I think I learned as well that you can still be a really good mum and it’s okay. 

‘I think I told myself for so long that I can’t have it all.

‘You can go away and you can work and you can be out of the house for a period of time without letting your kids down. It’s almost like I felt like you couldn’t have both. 

‘I used to think you can only have both if you’re really famous and you’re really big and you’re going on massive tours where all of your family can come. And actually, no, you can.’ 

Louise was a member of girl group Eternal in 1993, but left the band in 1995 to pursue a solo career. She had sold more than 5 million records in the UK alone and 15 million worldwide.  

The presenter was also a runner up with partner Kevin Clifton on Strictly Come Dancing in 2016.
