Louise Redknapp makes first public appearance since her split from husband of 19 years Jamie

Louise Redknapp has been seen in public for the first time since announcing her split from her husband of 19 years, Jamie Redknapp

The news of Louise Redknapp's split from her husband Jamie came to light whilst she was on holiday in Mallorca with her two sons.

But the popstar has now made her first public appearance since the split was announced.

She attended the wedding of Strictly Come Dancing professional dancers Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara over the weekend.

Whilst Louise, who was runner-up in last year's Strictly, wasn't pictured at the event, a guest at the wedding told MailOnline that she had attended.

They said: "Darcey, Craig and all the stars from Strictly and their celebrity dance partners were there, but Louise only wanted to be with one person; Daisy."

They added: "The girls didn't leave each other's side and stayed together chatting, laughing and dancing all night long. Louise didn't look as though she had a care in the world!"

The source told the publication that Louise's life had formerly revolved around Jamie and his life in football, but that she has now "thrown away the rule book" and that "she loves her new life."

They also said that Daisy had shown Louise a "new fun and carefree attitude" as she is "a lot younger and has no family responsibilities to think about."

This comes after a source revealed to The Sun that the so-called "Strictly curse" had in fact been behind the split.

They said that she had been a "doting wife and mother" for a decade, but that "it didn't fulfill her," adding: "Louise ended up spending a lot more time away from home with Daisy and rediscovering her youth."
