Singer Louise Redknapp and her footballer husband Jamie have been surrounded by relationship drama for a good few months amidst rumours and conjecture that the pair are parting ways. Neither half of the couple has come out to publicly speak about the potential separation but 42-year-old Louise appeared on TV show, This Morning, where she referenced how both she and Jamie are keen to protect their children as they go through any relationship problems.

The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant described that her and Jamie - who used to play for Liverpool during his Premiership career - had gone through some "hard times" but that "work had been her saviour" during the difficult period.

The couple - who share two children, Charley, 13, and Beau, eight - have been married for 19 years and spoke of their desire to put their two sons first when she talked about their current situation.

She said: "I think it's been so heavily documented, of course we all go through hard times and my priority and his priority are our children and protecting them and keeping as much of it as private as possible and loving them and putting them first. That's really what we're focusing on."
