"Louise now wants to agree a timetable with Jamie to bring the marriage to an end."

It had previously been reported the 19-year marriage came to an end following Louise’s appearance on popular BBC reality show, Strictly Come Dancing, during which it has been suggested she gained a new lease of life.

Despite this, recent photographs of the pair showed them both wearing their wedding rings just four days ago.

Reports have been swirling since July that the long-term couple, who share sons Charley, 12, and Beau, eight, have called off their marriage.

The pair have so far stayed quiet on the claims, but sources have alleged Louise has 'thrown away the rule book', after spending increasingly more time with her new best friend Daisy, whom she met on Strictly last year.

A source said: "It's like Louise is rebelling against all the rules. With Jamie, her life had to revolve around his football schedule and it was always about him.

"Now it's like she thrown away the rule book, she can do what she wants. She loves her new life."
