Louise Redknapp, 46, has shared it has been difficult to “navigate” single life after her split from husband of 19 years, Jamie Redknapp. The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant admitted she felt “baffled” after a new love-interest began to ignore her messages on a dating app after they had exchanged messages for a while.
Dating is so opaque
Louise has been single since 2017 when she split from ex Liverpool player Jamie.
The couple are parents to teenagers Charley, 16, and Beau, 12.
While Jamie has been spotted out and about with model Frida Andersson-Lourie, Louise has kept quiet on her love life, until now.
In an excerpt from her new book shared by The Sun, Louise explained how she was ignored after talking with a prospective suitor about a bike ride.
She explained: “I had what I thought was a good chat with a guy, and then one day he asked me what I was up to.
“I said, ‘Oh, I’m just going for a bike ride’. And that was the end of that.
“It’s been five months and no reply,” she added.
Louise was baffled by the radio silence and it left her wondering what she had done wrong.
The television star continued: “I’m just sitting here wondering what was it that I said? Are bike rides that unattractive?
“Basically, this is a way to say the new world of dating is so opaque and difficult to navigate.”
The mum of two admitted that it was hard to be a singleton in the modern landscape.
She explained: “It’s easy to feel you’ve done or said something wrong, when in reality it’s not on you.”

Since her split with Jamie, both parties had remained single until Jamie began dating again last August when he was first seen out with Frida.
The new couple has been spotted out on several occasions including Friday afternoon when they went for a trip around the shops in West London.
Frida has modelled for brands including Escape and is signed to Mrs Robinson Management, an agency for older models.
Before the pandemic, Frida was a regular on the party scene and is friends with actress Donna Air.
A source previously told The Sun: “Anyone who knows Jamie knows full well that his sons are his main priority and mean everything to him, he puts them first.
“But he really gets on with Frida and she has been very understanding about him juggling fatherhood and his successful TV career.
“He likes that she’s also a parent so fully appreciates the balance, she is also keen on her fitness and loves spending time at home.”
It comes as earlier in the week, Louise expressed her regret at ending her marriage to Jamie so hastily.
She revealed to You! magazine: “I should have paused and thought about other people and had just a bit more time to work out why I felt I couldn’t do it anymore.”
