Are Louise & Jamie finally happy again?
They’re still wearing their wedding rings and can’t stop smiling…
Stepping out of the BBC studios last week, Louise Redknapp was pictured grinning from ear to ear. Reports that her marriage is over refuse to go away – but the singer flashed her wedding ring and appeared more at ease than we’ve seen her in months.
Similarly, husband Jamie, 44, left the GQ Men of the Year awards hours earlier and seemed on good form. An eyewitness at the event tells Now: ‘Jamie was laughing and joking with pals including Jay Rutland, and was more than happy to pose for pictures with fans.
‘At one point he did appear a bit lost in a group of couples, no doubt used to having Louise by his side, but it wasn’t long before his high spirits returned.’
The retired footballer was also wearing his wedding band – so does this mean the couple are back on track? We’re told, sadly, that this isn’t the case.
A well-placed source says: ‘Louise and Jamie are both in a better place right now but unfortunately that place isn’t with each other.
‘Keeping their wedding rings on means the rumours are at bay but, the truth is, they still don’t know what the future holds.’
Perhaps the most telling sign things aren’t great between former Strictly star Louise, 42, and Jamie is the fact she was absent from the awards – despite it being an evening they’ve attended together frequently in the past.
In fact, Jamie seemed in no rush to get home as he and Jay, 36, partied at Mayfair private members club Loulou’s until the early hours.
Earlier this year, Louise was spotted at her mum’s house, where she is thought to have been staying, just down the road from the mansion she shared with Jamie and their two boys Charley, 13, and eight-year-old Beau.
We’re told that she still hasn’t returned to the family home full-time and despite the fact there hasn’t been a conversation about separating formally, for now at least Louise and Jamie are enjoying time apart.
After almost 20 years of marriage, perhaps some space is just what they need to get things back on track, but our insider adds that Louise and Jamie are still very much in limbo when it comes to their future together.
