Girls just wanna have fun

The Star Early Edition - - OPINION & ANALYSIS -

WHAT’s a girl to do when things get tricky on the home front? Why, take to In­sta­gram, of course, to post snaps that make it clear just how much fun sin­gle life can be.

For­mer pop star Louise Red­knapp has ap­peared laugh­ing and jok­ing around with friends in a se­ries of so­cial me­dia pic­tures, amid reports that she is liv­ing apart from ex-foot­baller Jamie Red­knapp, her hus­band of 19 years.

Sources close to the cou­ple have sug­gested that Louise, 42, re­dis­cov­ered her “mojo” dur­ing her daz­zling per­for­mances in last year’s se­ries of Strictly Come Danc­ing, where she is said to have formed close bonds with her fel­low con­tes­tants, par­tic­u­larly partylov­ing model Daisy Lowe, 28.

Fol­low­ing her suc­cess on Strictly, Louise seems happy to be out on her own, as her re­cent posts re­veal. In one, she is pic­tured with Daisy and other friends sip­ping cock­tails at a meet­ing of their “book club” at the ul­tra-fash­ion­able So­ci­ety Club in East Lon­don.

Get­ting in tip-top shape is a tra­di­tional part­ing shot to a strained re­la­tion­ship, and Louise has been count­ing off the calo­ries dur­ing box­er­cise ses­sions. She posts snaps of her work-outs on so­cial me­dia and has flaunted her toned physique as the cover star of a re­cent is­sue of Women’s Health mag­a­zine.

And, as if to con­firm her in­de­pen­dence, she has even done a spot of car main­te­nance, re­leas­ing a snap of her pump­ing up a flat tyre on her 4x4.
