Former Strictly Come Dancing star Louise Redknapp has revealed how she finds confidence through what she wears, to get her through the tough times and everyday life. The 44-year-old, who is recently divorced from footballer Jamie Redknapp, told The Sunday Times Style magazine how she dresses for new beginnings, saying: "Clothes can give you confidence, but choosing the right pieces comes from finding your confidence, so it’s a bit of a catch-22. You hit different stages when your confidence comes and goes — whether it’s teenager to adult, your first job, your dating years, having a family — they can all be hard, especially when your body is changing."

The mum-of-two also talked about how to dress when dating after a breakup, revealing: "This is hard. You want to give the right message: that you’ve made an effort, but not that you’re trying too hard. The impression you want to make is that you’ve rocked up and you’re all easy-breezy. I’d stay away from a glitzy dress, too much make-up and overdone hair — if it’s right, there’s going to be plenty of time for that after."

Louise and Jamie split in 2017 after 19 years of marriage after she made it to the Strictly semi-finals. Louise had previously opened up to The Telegraph about her marriage and her time on Strictly, saying: "He's an amazing man and we've had 20 good years together... I know he's trying to understand that I do need to do this." She continued: "I have spent most of my life pleasing everyone else, worrying about being judged and thinking I should always do the right thing by staying at home, looking after my kids and my husband. I lost myself, I became a sort of Stepford Wife, wanting to be perfect at it. It was only when I agreed to do Strictly Come Dancing that I realised I couldn’t just go back to that."
