After Louise and Jamie Redknapp's alleged split, Strictly Come Dancing bosses are reportedly struggling to sign major stars to this year's show.

Whilst Louise and Jamie have not yet made a public statement around their split, friends of the couple have put the break-up of their 19-year marriage down to the infamous Strictly Curse.

But it has seemed more like Louise has rediscovered who she is outside of being a wife and mother, rather than that they've fallen out of love...

However - according to The Sun, their split is scaring other high-profile celebrities away from doing the show for fear that it might put their own relationship in jeopardy.

Yeah - because if you're worried about your relationship breaking up because of doing a show, it's DEFINITELY the show's fault...


A source told the paper: "The curse is real and it contributed to the breakdown of one of the strongest couples in showbiz.

"No one wants to end up in the same boat. The Louise and Jamie split has scared a lot of big A-list stars off appearing on the show."

Still, there has been no official statement from the Redknapps to say that their marriage is over - and there's also the fact that Louise was spotted wearing her wedding ring on a night out two weeks ago.

Could it be that the couple are working on their problems, and that's why they haven't announced anything yet?

We sure hope so.

And with Louise starring on the West End in Cabaret AND heading back in the recording studio again, she may be feeling more fulfilled.

She posted a photo on Instagram of herself in a recording studio with a group of people, and captioned it: "I got to work with some amazing people this week thanks guys I loved it 🎤"

People were quick to the same conclusion as us, and commented on the post. One wrote: "I really hope this is new music that you're working on! ❤️🎶😊"and another added: "New album????" whilst one asked: "You back recording? @louiseredknapp 😘 #hopeso"

Fingers crossed that the couple can get back on track!
