Louise and Jamie Redknapp have had their divorce granted in just 20 seconds.
After 19 years of marriage, a judge has granted them a quickie divorce, which went through on 29 December. Louise cited Jamie’s ‘unreasonable behaviour’ as the reason for the split, which he did not contest.
Judge Ian Mulkis granted a decree nisi at a hearing in the Central Family Court in London, at which neither Louise, 43, or Jamie, 44, were present.
They are also expected to reach an amicable agreement over custody of their two sons – Charley, 13, and nine-year-old Beau. Louise confirmed in July that she had split from her husband, claiming she had ‘lost herself’ in their marriage.
The former Eternal star’s stint on Strictly has been cited as reigniting her desire to be in the limelight – with Louise previously saying that she felt like a ‘Stepford Wife’ during her marriage.
Since then she’s appeared on stage as Sally Bowles in a touring production of Cabaret as well as making moves to kickstart her pop career – but friends said she claimed Jamie was resistant to the changes, something which he has denied.
Louise has also struck up a close friendship with her Strictly pro partner Kevin Clifton – hiring him to choreograph dance routines for her comeback tour.
The pair have remained good friends since they met on the BBC One show in 2016 although it was recently claimed that their friendship is said to have caused issues between them and their respective romantic partners.
Louise’s husband Jamie Redknapp reportedly became so concerned while the two were partnered together on Strictly in 2016 that he put in a call to Karen Clifton who warned him to keep his wife away from her husband.
