Louise Redknapp says she didn’t have the confidence to write music before her divorce on the Chris Evans Breakfast show – The Sun

LOUISE Redknapp has said she didn’t have the confidence to write music before her divorce from Jamie.

The 45-year-old opened up about her new album as she appeared on The Virgin Radio Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky today to mark its first birthday.

When asked by Chris if she ever thought she’d record again after a 20 year hiatus, she replied:” Well, no, absolutely not. Well, listen, we've known each other for years, haven't we?

“Obviously, you have your kids and you're at home and you kind of think that its and then.

“I don't actually think I could have written this album 10 years ago. I don't think I would have had the confidence been in the right place to actually be creative.”

She continued: “I think sometimes things have to change for the sort of creativeness to actually happen. And the want and the fire and the passion, you know, that comes with making music.

“So, yeah, if someone had said to me ten years ago, this would be happening, I would not have believed them.”

Louise and Jamie – who have sons Charley and Beau – got divorced at that start of 2018 after splitting the year before.

Elsewhere on the show Chris was celebrating the first birthday of his programme.

To mark the occasion Virgin Radio has launched a new station Virgin Radio Groove, which features the best of dance and r&b, from the '70s through to today.

Marking the occasion Chris  said: "This time last year I returned to my spiritual home at Virgin Radio and I have loved every minute of it since then.

“We instantly changed commercial radio forever – creating the first ad-break free breakfast show, thanks to our partnership with Sky.

“We are delighted with the listening figures and our numbers have continued to grow every month. Over the next year our plan for the breakfast show is simple; to continue to give it all we’ve got and have the most possible fun along the way".
