Jamie is ‘bowled over’ by the transformation of Louise and they could become more than just friends
Following months of speculation about Jamie Redknapp’s love life, it would seem that he is growing affections towards someone that has been a staple of his life for many years, his ex-wife Louise.
Just 15 months after their divorce was finalised, it has been reported that Jamie and Louise are ‘growing close’ and they could rekindle the relationship that fizzled out in December 2017.
The pair have remained firm friends with Louise describing Jamie as still her ‘bestie’ in a recent radio interview.
With Jamie being linked French model Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, as well as an aborted attempt to couple him up with his dad Harry’s I’m A Celebrity campmate Emily Atack, there has been plenty of female interest in Jamie but he still remains single since splitting from Louise.
Now the 45-year-old football pundit is apparently ‘bowled over’ by the recent ‘transformation’ of Louise and they are ‘spending large amounts of time together’, according to Woman magazine .
Former Eternal singer Louise, 44, has recently took to the stage on the West End in 9 to 5 The Musical and is relaunching her solo career, with a new deal with Warner Music signed.
A friend of Jamie’s has said, “there is a spark there now which he hasn’t seen since the very early days – way back when she was in Eternal.”
They went on to say that Jamie has fallen for Louise all over again and claims he, “fancies the pants off her again.”
Describing Louise as “forbidden fruit”, the friend also revealed that the pair were “enjoying flirting” and that it, “cheers them both up.”
The pair originally married in 1998 on a luxury yacht in Bermuda. They have two sons, Charley, 13 and Beau, nine and Louise has previously spoken about the ‘tough time’ they have had since breaking up.
She said:”It’s been really tough, but, you know, he’s my best friend.
“It’s been really tough but things happen. I saw him yesterday and it was all good.
“We had school meetings and stuff, like you do, so all good.”
