"I still wish I'd done things differently because I feel like I hurt a lot of people and I'll always be sorry for that," she added.

Her 20-year marriage to Jamie unravelled after her appearance on the hit BBC show.

Since their separation in 2017, Louise and Jamie have remained on good terms – the former footballer has since found love with Swedish model Frida Andersson.

They are co-parenting their two sons in a positive way.

"We have a great system co-parenting them between us," she continued.

"Our rule is that while one of us is working, the other is with them.

"We both want the kids all the time and encourage the other to go out so that we can have them.

We share everything, too.

On Christmas Day we do the presents together, they're from us both.

Maybe this works now because neither of us is in a relationship, but I like to think it will always be like that."

The singer, 46, took part in the 2016 edition of the BBC dance show before divorcing former footballer Jamie Redknapp a year later.

In her brand new book, You've Got This, louise said she regretted the timing of the show and belives she might still be married if she hadn't competed.

Louise ended her marriage to Jamie after 19 years in 2017.

She went on to say that being part of the series "wasn’t worth putting anyone I loved or love through the heartache."

The mum-of-two continued: “I still wish I’d done things differently because I feel like I hurt a lot of people and I’ll always be sorry for that.

“I felt like certain people had my back, and, in hindsight this wasn’t really the case.

I was so scared about going back to normal life and losing what I’d achieved on the show.”

Louise shares sons Beau, 12, and Charley, 16, with the footballer.

Her confession comes after it was reported that Louise is now ready to find love again.

A source explained: “She’s serious about moving on, and has said that clearing all that toxic energy from the past has made her realise she could see herself getting married again.”
