Speaking to Steve Anderson's podcast Such A Good Feeling, Louise was asked for the story behind 2019's Breaking Back Together from her album Heavy Love.

The singer and TV presenter said that she and her sons Charley, 17, and Beau, 13 had moved back in with her mum for a while after the split and said they were staying in her "tiny little house", adding that they were "crammed in the kitchen, around a tiny table".

Louise said she would often have heart to hearts with her mum and liked being reassured by her that "everything was going to be alright".

Talking about what inspired the song, Louise explained: "She said to me, 'You know what Lou, sometimes you have to break to come back together. You are going to have to accept that this isn't going to go away overnight'."

When Jamie welcomed his new baby son recently, Louise took to social media to clarify her feelings after a magazine claimed she was devastated.

She wrote: "I try not to read or respond to these things but sometimes they are unavoidable. I’d really love to clarify that “Louise” is not in despair or anything like it!!

"I have my two gorgeous boys that I adore more than anything in the world, the best family around me and I’m having the time of my life with my career and with the most wonderful friends that a girl could hope for.

"I’d like to make it clear that I’m in the most positive of headspace and loving my life. Here’s to all the ladies out there that are in control of their lives and living their very best lives!"
