When quizzed about the state of her marriage by Eamonn Holmes on This Morning, Louise said:”I think that it has been so heavily documented and of course we all go through hard times.

“My priority and his priority is our children and protecting them and love them and putting them first and that’s what we are focusing.”

Louise and Jamie were married for 19 years, they have two sons together, Charley, 12, and Beau, nine.

Eamonn went on to ask if work had helped her at all and she candidly told him: “I think going back to work has been a real saviour for me.

“Doing Strictly, it does something. For me it was all about performing and to go back on stage every night and get the opportunity again.”

Louise is currently at the centre of claims she is seeking a “quickie divorce” from her husband Jamie.

The Sun previously revealed how Louise split from Jamie in July and quit the marital home after the Strictly curse struck their relationship.

After the split, insiders close to Louise claimed her “new-found independence” she gained from her stint on the dance show was driving her on to formalise the break-up with a divorce.

The Sun revealed their marriage had broken down in June, with insiders saying Jamie was desperate for the pair to stay together.

Louise’s close friendship with fellow Strictly star Daisy Lowe was cited as an issue in the breakdown of the marriage as the pair’s party antics are said to have put a strain on the pop star’s relationship with Jamie.

Louise is now thought to be living 15 minutes away from the family home in Surrey and is currently in a three-month tour of the musical Cabaret.

But she put on a brave face to kick off the start of Cabaret’s nationwide tour and was praised for her “show-stopping” performance.

Before taking part in Strictly Come Dancing last year, Louise admitted she had lost her confidence and never dreamed of being on stage again.

However after being placed as a runner up in the final, she revealed she finally felt as though she’d found her mojo and immediately knew she wanted to start performing again.

She said at the time: “Strictly has given me a new lease of life. I never went into it to get another job or to be more high-profile, I did it for me.

“You realise as the weeks go on that people are voting for you. They are invested in you. That has given me a huge confidence boost.

Strictly Come Dancing star Karen Clifton said Louise’s stint on the BBC show last year gave her a new-found confidence.

She said: “On the show Louise grew in confidence and you could see her wings expanding.

“It was great because she’s been a stay-at-home mum and sometimes you can forget about yourself.

“Now she’s giving herself a little bit more attention and she’s taking care of herself, which is lovely.

“She’s re-inventing herself. She’s a gorgeous woman and he’s a lovely man and I just feel really bad that they’ve separated.”
