Charley splits his time between Louise and Jamie's houses following their divorce in 2017. The celebrity couple are also parents to nine-year-old son Beau. Louise previously opened up about Charley to HELLO!, gushing: "He's nearly as big as his dad with size nine shoes, so he's turning into a man before my very eyes. He's becoming very interested in fashion and trends in a fun way, he's finding his feet and showing lots of interest in girls. He's becoming really his own person, which is lovely and great to see."

Louise shot to fame as part of the 1992 girl band Eternal, and has gone on to release three successful solo albums, selling over 15 million records worldwide. The star is currently being managed by Billy Clark, and paid tribute to him before Christmas, sharing a photo of the pair together and captioning it: "My main man."
