Irish Daily Mail - - News - By Laura Lam­bert news@dai­ly­mail.ie

LOUISE Red­knapp has bro­ken her si­lence on a ru­moured split from foot­baller hus­band Jamie, say­ing they were go­ing through ‘hard times’. The singer, 42, said the cou­ple, above, were throw­ing their en­ergy into pro­tect­ing their chil­dren.

She did not deny spec­u­la­tion that their 19-year mar­riage has col­lapsed, though she was still wear­ing her wed­ding ring yes­ter­day. Re­spond­ing to ques­tions about her mar­riage on ITV’s This Morn­ing, she said: ‘It’s been heav­ily doc­u­mented and of course we all go through hard times. My pri­or­ity, and his pri­or­ity, are our chil­dren – pro­tect­ing them and lov­ing them and putting them first. That’s re­ally what we are fo­cus­ing on.’

She and Sky Sports pun­dit Red­knapp, 44, have two sons, Charley, 12, and Beau, nine. Af­ter what she de­scribed as ‘12 years at home do­ing the mum thing’, Miss Red­knapp fin­ished run­nerup with Kevin Clifton in the last se­ries of Strictly Come Danc­ing.

The for­mer Eter­nal singer has re­launched her mu­sic career and is in a Lon­don mu­si­cal.
