Louise Redknapp is determined to get back to normal following her accident last week, which resulted in her being rushed to A&E and needing stitches on her chin. Although she has had to pull out of new theatre show 9 to 5 until March on doctor's orders, Louise has set herself a new challenge during her time off work. On Thursday, Jamie Redknapp's ex-wife headed back to the gym, and took to Instagram to share a photo of herself with her personal trainer, Bradley Simmonds. She wrote next to the image: "Back with @bradleysimmonds today a very light workout concentrating on core to keep motivated for @9to5themusicaluk." The star's fans were full of encouragement, with one writing: "Hope you get back to the stage pronto I’ve booked tickets for March purely to see you," while another said: "Hope you’re feeling better after your nasty fall and setback," a third added: "Thinking of you Louise and hope you’re back to work very soon. You must be missing it. Xxx lots of love xx."
