Louise and Jamie Redknapp are to divorce today, it has been reported.

The couple are expected to be granted a decree nisi at the Central Family Court in London that will formally begin the dissolution of their 19-year marriage, according to The Sun.

The former Eternal singer and Strictly Come Dancing star, 43, confirmed she was living apart from her football pundit husband, 44, in October.

She told the Daily Telegraph that she loved her "amazing" partner, with whom she has two children, although she had come to feel like "a sort of Stepford Wife" and she was "coming back to who I really am".

According to court listings, a decree nisi for L E Redknapp v J F Redknapp will be pronounced before a judge today.

A decree absolute ending the marriage can be issued after six weeks, should no objections be formally made.
