PICTURE EXCLUSIVE Louise Redknapp looks deep in thought as she exhibits her petite figure in stylish gym gear… amid reports ex-husband Jamie is ‘dating French model’

She has been embracing life as a single woman following her divorce from husband Jamie Redknapp in January, after nearly 20 years of marriage.

And Louise Redknapp looked to have a lot on her mind as she paid a visit to London’s Harvey Nichols on Thursday, where she had seemingly been indulging in a spot of retail therapy.

The 43-year-old held a pensive facial expression as she left the luxury department store, with the fashionista swapping her usual trendy togs for comfortable gym gear.

But even Louise’s workout wardrobe proved to be a stylish one as the star stepped out in a black, cowl neck hoodie and cropped grey leggings that boasted black panels at the rear.

She paired her activewear with trendy white trainers and gave her look some added opulence with an over-sized designer handbag.

Letting her natural beauty shine through, Louise opted for minimal make-up for the outing and allowed her hair to fall in a tousled style around her face.

Louise Redknapp was spotted in this sporty outfit for an afternoon of shopping in London.

The grey and black look consisted of leggings, a hoodie and trainers, providing the ultimate comfortable ensemble.

We immediately noticed her hoodie was by Nike, thanks to the iconic little logo on the edge. But there’s more to this piece than meets the eye; it’s made from an innovative fleece fabric that is lightweight and breathable.

The design also incorporates a high funnel neck and oversized hood and to block out the elements, which is exactly what we need at this time of year!

The TV presenter looked deep in thought as she left the plush store, an outing that comes just days after she confirmed she would be supporting Britney Spears at Brighton Pride later this year.

In what is her biggest solo gig to date, the former Eternal singer, 43, will join the likes of Ella Eyre and Pixie Lott for Britney’s Piece Of Me show.

The mother-of-two will appear on August 4 on the main stage in Brighton’s Preston Park.

Britney will follow, with the show that has thus far taken place in Las Vegas, where she has had a residency up until recently.

The Brighton Pride Festival website says of Louise’s signing: ‘The line-up just got eternally better, with the announcement that iconic 90s songstress Louise will take to the stage.’

The news that Louise – who famously put her career on the back-burner to raise her and Jamie’s sons Charley, 13, and Beau, nine – is riding a wave of success somewhat overshadows rumours that her ex has already found a new woman.

Reports suggested recently that the ex-Liverpool FC ace Jamie, 44, has been romancing Julia Restoin Roitfeld – model and Instagram personality.

But Louise seems to be concentrating on her career in the music industry, with her signing a deal with Warner recently.

She is touring her Intimate & Live show – her first in over 15 years. The shows sold out in less than 10 minutes when tickets went up for sale in December 2017.

‘I hadn’t played a headline show for 15 years and taking to the stage again filled me with so many emotions from nerves to sheer joy,’ the former Strictly Come Dancing finalist said.

Despite her recent divorce, Louise hinted she is feeling stronger than ever when she shared a poignant quote to mark International Women’s Day last week.

The mother-of-two shared the quote with fans, saying it was a snip of one of her favourite songs, encouraging her nearly 500,000 followers to stay positive through the challenges of life.

The quote read: ‘Be great, be kind. Don’t let them dim your light. Cos a woman like the sun should always stay bright.’

The couple’s split was first confirmed back in October, when Louise revealed she had moved out of the family home.

It is believed that the media personality realised she wanted to return to work and felt she had ‘sacrificed’ her career, following her successful stint on Strictly Come Dancing.

Her participation in the 2016 series of Strictly is widely regarded to have been a factor in the split, but it has been claimed that Jamie fully supported her decision to take part and encouraged her each Saturday night.
