Louise Redknapp talks ex-husband Jamie’s ‘weird’ penchant for lookalike women

Louise Redknapp has weighed in on ex-husband Jamie's penchant for women who look like her, whilst opening up about her own dating woes.

Jamie has been spotted with several beauties since Louise filed for divorce in 2017 – all of whom bare more than a passing resemblance to his ex.

Most recently he was seen leaving London celeb haunt Annabel's with stunning British model Lizzie Bowden, 34.

And while Louise insists she's fine with him moving on, she admits the lookalike thing is 'weird'.

“It is kinda weird! And then I start looking at them thinking, ‘Do they look like me?’ But he’s got his taste,” she tells the Guardian .


The 44-year-old stage star says it's been harder for their sons Charley, 14, and Beau, 10, to see their dad with other women, and often reassures them that, "Dad’s a single man and he’s doing nothing wrong."

As for her own love life, she reveals she's not been in a date since her separation.

“It’s really hard for women. I’m beginning to think I’m never going to meet anyone… I’ve not been out for a meal, just me and a guy in a restaurant, in two years. That makes me sound really sad, doesn’t it?” she says, speculating that it's 'easier' for men to move on from a 19-year marriage.

It comes after Louise last week admitted she'll "always be sad" that their marriage didn't work out.

She famously moved out of the family home after starring in the 2016 series of Strictly Come Dancing because she was sick of being a 'Stepford Wife'.



The former Eternal star has since reignited her career, starring in West End musical 9 to 5 and releasing a new solo album.

But despite being fine with Jamie dating other women, she admitted he'll always hold a place in her heart.

"There'll never be a day that I don't feel sad about it because he was my husband for 20 years and the love I had for him will never leave me," she told Metro.

"But, I've had to pick myself up and find a better place and I'm definitely loving working again."
