Louise Redknapp made her West End debut in Cabaret as Sally Bowles last night at the New Wimbledon Theatre - but her husband Jamie was nowhere to be seen.

Louise, 42, gave an absolutely stellar performance according to audience members, and even greeted fans after the show - with her wedding ring on.

Despite this, her husband Jamie was not spotted in the crowds - unsurprisingly, as claims of their split were announced in July after friends of Louise told The Sun that she had confirmed their separation to her close pals.

However, neither Louise or Jamie have made an official statement confirming their split, and fans remain hopeful that they can work out their differences to reunite.

It is thought that their split came as a result of Louise's stint on Strictly Come Dancing, which The Sun claimed revived Louise's "mojo" and meant that she no longer felt "fulfilled" as "just a wife and mother" - adding that Jamie "didn't understand."

Louise, who shot to fame in the 90s as part of girl band Eternal, rediscovered her performing roots after coming third in 2016's Strictly, and was signed onto the cast of Cabaret shortly after.

She told The Telegraph: "It was one of the scariest things I’ve done, and the most intimidating.

"I've always loved singing. Strictly reminded me how much I love dancing. And acting is a new task to take on.

"There are lots of roles where I could just act or sing or dance, but to have the opportunity to do all three - that's not something that comes around very often. I'm really excited."

Fingers crossed these two can get back on track.
