Louise Redknapp is currently starring as Sally Bowles alongside Will Young in a touring production of Cabaret the musical.
But it has emerged that the singer’s estranged husband Jamie Redknapp is reportedly refusing to go and see his wife perform in the stage show.
The former footballer’s decision is said to have come after Louise’s recent admission about how she ended her marriage to Jamie after Daisy Lowe convinced her she was still sexy during their time together on Strictly Come Dancing.

The pundit has apparently become increasingly angry about her treatment of the pair’s marriage, following her revelations in the press.
Louise’s lead role in Cabaret, which opened in Wimbledon and is touring the UK, has reignited her passion for performing but Jamie has reportedly insisted that he will not attend.
A source close to the couple said: “It’s very telling. It’s her big moment but he feels it would be too awkward.”

“Jamie and their friends don’t understand why she had to walk out on the marriage to pursue her own career”, the source told The Sun.
Louise gave up her career as a pop star to become a full-time mum to sons Charley, now 13, and Beau, now eight, but has made a return to the spotlight following her time on Strictly Come Dancing
The pop star opened up in a recent heartfelt interview about how Strictly made her drastically rethink her life, forcing her and husband Jamie to live apart.

42 year old Louise confessed that a pivotal moment was when her Strictly co-star, model Daisy Lowe, charged into her dressing room and told her: “Oh, my God look at your gorgeous body. You have to wear a sexy dress.
“She kept on at me to wear something sexy and by week three, I was in a leotard and tights not feeling self-conscious at all”, confessed the former Eternal singer.
