Lorraine Kelly, Nicola McLean and Denise Van Outen have all spoken out...
Sadly, it looks like the rumours are true and Louise Redknapp really has ended her relationship with husband Jamie.
And now a bunch of famous faces have publicly spoken about the reported split, but we wonder what the Redknapp family would have to say about this…
On her ITV morning chat show Lorraine, Lorraine Kelly didn’t seem too impressed with the former Eternal singer’s alleged decision to choose her career above her marriage.
After Louise spoke out about feeling like a ‘Stepford Wife’ during her marriage to footballer and TV presenter Jamie Redknapp, Lorraine confessed she was confused: ‘I hear what she’s saying, but surely it’s not one or the other. You can have a career and a family.’
‘It’s really difficult to balance, we know that, but she could have had someone in to help, and he could have done a bit more – she could have had the best of both worlds,’ Lorraine continued. ‘It means your partner has to do a lot to help, but also they’re not exactly poor. She could have someone in to make the dinner.’
The TV host went on: ‘We don’t know do we, we can only speculate. I just don’t understand why she left him… Why she couldn’t go on tour and say, ‘Look, I’ve supported you for years but I’m gonna go do Strictly and do this tour and I need you to back me up. But the tour will be finished soon’.’

With Louise having credited the BBC show Strictly Come Dancing for her change in attitude after she made the final last year, Lorraine added: ‘There must be more to it, I don’t know, we just need to get her in to talk to her! They’ve got two children so I hope they work it out because they’re both lovely people. The Strictly curse.’
But Lorraine isn’t the only celeb to share their opinion on the couple’s relationship troubles…
‘I’m so confused at this Louise redknapp and jamie split? Surely she can work and still be married? Is she having a midlife crisis?? [sic]’ Nicola McLean tweeted over the weekend after Louise’s comments were released, before adding: ‘It’s really bugging me?? What is the issue she wants to work??? Ok ! Im sure jamie hasn’t chained her to the sink? [sic]’
But Louise’s famous friend Denise Van Outen stuck up for her panel during her appearance on Loose Women.
The 43-year-old revealed told the panel: ‘I think this happens to a lot of women. I was in a similar situation and there were problems in the marriage before Strictly… I totally take my hat off to her, she’s held a dignified silence until now.’
Regardless of what’s going on with Jamie and Louise, our thoughts are with the family at this tricky time.
