KEVIN Clifton was singing Louise Redknapp's praises and called her "amazing" after her first concert in over 15 years.
Louise was performing a sold-out comeback concert at London's Under The Bridge when Kevin made the confession to his pals.
After the show, Kevin was overheard discussing Louise's return to the music industry when he said: "The thing I love most about her is she doesn't even realise how amazing she is."
Kevin had spent the evening with Louise's friends and family in a reserved area of the intimate venue.
An eye-witness told The Sun Online: "Kevin was smiling throughout Louise's performance and after the show all of her family and friends stayed to celebrate.
"He was clearly so proud of her and didn't mind telling people so."
They were joined by a host of Strictly Come Dancing favourites including Gorka Marquez and AJ Pritchard and The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge.
In exclusive pictures obtained by The Sun Online, Kevin attempted to keep a low profile at the gig with a hat covering his face.
Louise couldn't contain her emotion as she received rapturous applause from her loyal fans.
Speaking on stage, she gushed: "It's my first gig in 15 years so it really means a lot that you're still supporting me.
"I just wanted to thank you all because you've been with me for 25 years now."
Louise – who scored an impressive nine Top 10 hits in her pop heyday – performed classic tracks including Naked, Let's Go Round Again, Pandora's Kiss and In Walked Love.
The 43-year-old opted for a semi-sheer blouse under a fitted blazer with matching trousers.
The Sun Online exclusively revealed how pro dancer Kevin, 35, has developed routines for Louise’s New Year’s Eve show at London club G-A-Y as she plots a chart comeback.
A Strictly source said: “Kevin and Louise clearly have such a strong bond and enjoy working together. They know their latest link-up is bound to cause a stir but they’re being professional.
“Louise is determined to make a success of her music comeback so wanted a trusted ally in Kevin on her team.”
Louise will next perform at G-A-Y on New Year's Eve before heading out on a UK tour in January.
