The two have been married for just under 20 years, but rumours began circulating earlier this year that they were seeking a divorce, which Louise recently confirmed in an interview with ‘This Morning’.
In a fresh interview with Stella magazine, Louise has now offered more details about the break-up, revealing that her involvement in ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ pushed her to rethink what she wanted for her future.
Louise went on to say that the split has not been easy because she and Jamie are still involved in each other’s lives.
’Being fulfilled, being true to yourself, following your passion, they are the things that make you happy. ’I have no idea what is going to happen, all I know is that I fought for this, it’s taken everything, but this is something I need to do – for me.”
Last month, Louise explained that protecting the couple’s children had been her main priority throughout the break-up, revealing: “Keeping as much private as possible and loving them and putting them first… that’s really what we are focussing on.”
