Louise Redknapp has told how her celebrity pals gave her the cold shoulder and continued to see her ex Jamie after the pair split.

The former Eternal singer, 46, and ex-footballer split in 2017 after 19 years of marriage.

Louise has revealed she was gutted after seeing footie pundit Jamie invited to events she would have liked to go to, including Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding.

And she said the only stars who the couple were friends with that have stood by her are comedian Jimmy Carr and his long-term partner Karoline Copping.

She told The Sun: “Recently, a friend came round who I hadn’t seen for a while. I got quite upset and I told her I missed my girlfriends who I’d got to know when I was with Jamie.

“While they still enjoy their couples’ nights out — birthday parties, Christmas dos, drinks and the like, I’m only invited for coffee."

She said "It’s hard" because the women were her friends who did things like going out for dinner together, and that they had "shared countless special memories".

In new book You’ve Got This, Louise praises comic Jimmy, 48, and his partner, for keeping in touch with her.

She said: “Out of all the friends Jamie and I shared, the only people who have made a point of still inviting me to their events are Jimmy Carr and his wife.

“They have tried to be diplomatic and made it clear that both Jamie and I would always be invited to their parties. Whether we wanted to go or felt comfortable going was entirely down to us — the invitation was there.

“I don’t think Jimmy will ever know what that meant to me — but in those moments where I felt lost and alone, it meant the world.”

She adds: “When you see weddings and big parties online, it can be pretty hard to swallow.

“I feel that everyone took their side, and in some cases this meant cutting me off completely.

“But in a way, maybe it’s for the best. If they are the kind of people that don’t want to be my friend or keep in touch, that’s fine. It just shows they weren’t true friends.”

Former Liverpool FC star Jamie, 47, and Louise share two sons, Beau, 12, and 16-year-old Charles.
