Louise Redknapp, 47, took part in Strictly Come Dancing back in 2016 when she was partnered with Kevin Clifton. The star has now opened up about her time leaving the show in a new interview, admitting she felt “vulnerable”.

Louise has previously shared how she decided to leave her 19-year marriage to Jamie Redknapp following her time on the show.

After reaching the finals, the singer admitted it made her reassess her priorities to “kids and music”.

Speaking on a new podcast, Louise admitted this was a “vulnerable” time for her.

She reflected on the early months of 2017, when she took on the role of Sally Bowles in Cabaret.

She was appearing in the nationwide tour amid rumours she was seeking a divorce from Jamie.

Chatting to Steve Anderson, Louise admitted throwing all of those emotions into her performance.

She shared: “It was a vulnerable time in my life.

“When I did Cabaret, I think I was a little bit lost myself.

“And I think that most probably played perfectly into the hand of playing Sally Bowles.”

Louise went on to admit how the show director Rufus Norris commented on this.

“He said to me, ‘I know you’ve had a rough time and your personal life has been a bit up in the air.

“‘But I feel that you’ve taken every emotion from that and put that into Sally Bowles every night.’”

Louise shared on the Such A Good Feeling podcast how she felt the “vulnerable” side of her came out in the performance.

She toured the country with the show throughout 2017, appearing alongside Will Young.

Louise and Jamie announced their split that year and their divorce was finalised in 2018.

They have two sons together, Charley, 17, and Beau, 13.

Writing in her autobiography in February, Louise admitted she wished she’d done more to save the relationship.

She wrote: “I wish I’d tried. I want to say to anyone thinking of running: Just slow down. Don’t run.

“Because once you run too fast, you can’t make up the ground you’ve lost.

“Stop, say what you need, say what you think, don’t be afraid to say what’s really going on. You don’t have to be quiet.”

Jamie has since married again to model Frida Andersson-Redknapp and the couple have a son together.
