Louise Redknapp was part of Eternal - the girl band which took the 90s by storm after becoming the first all-girl group to sell over a million copies in the UK - before embarking on a highly successful solo career in 1995. Her first album, Naked, was a huge smash, spawning 5 hits, selling over 1 million copies and managing to conceive some very edgy accompanying videos. In 1997, Louise set off on her first UK tour, playing over 20 sell out venues across the country including Wembley Arena.
Louise released a further 4 albums over the next few years before embarking on a final UK tour. She then turned to presenting with a stint on CD:UK, her charming and down to earth style ensuring popularity with the viewers. She hit the UK Top 5 again with "Pandora's Kiss" in 2003.
Louise's warm bubbly nature endears to both her male and female audiences alike and in 2004 she achieved the ultimate accolade of being named FHM's sexiest woman of the decade.
Having taken a short time out to build her family with husband Jamie, Louise returned to the lime light as the face of Thomas Cook (with husband Jamie), Triumph Lingerie and Nintendo Wii Fit, as well as brand ambassador for Wrigleys, Fashion Union, Wallis Petite and Carlsberg's Eve, further cementing Louise's commercial presence.
She has also entered into a successful TV presenting career; co hosting the re-launched Clothes Show, ITV2's Soccer Aid 2006 and 2008 and fashion punditry for the BBC at Royal Ascot 2006. March 2007 also saw her undergo a punishing 30 day ordeal to expose the 'Truth About Size Zero', an in depth observational documentary that followed Louise on a personal journey investigating what it really takes to be super slim.
In March 2008 Louise highlighted her business acumen and creativity as a member of the winning girls' team on 'Sport Relief does The Apprentice'. Spring 2009 saw a follow up ITV1 documentary 'Super Skinny Pregnancies' which investigated the pressures on women to stay in shape during and after pregnancy. Following a guest co-presenting stint in summer 2009 alongside Tim Lovejoy on BBC's 'Something for the Weekend', Louise kicked off 2010 as the new permanent co-host. She also Judged alongside Arlene Phillips, Nasty Nigel Lythgoe and Sisco Gomez on BBC1's 'So You Think You Can Dance' Series 1 and 2.
As if 2011 wasn't busy enough, Louise also turned her hand to acting playing Ray Winstone's wife Irene in Tim Lewiston's latest project 'The Hot Potato'. In addition, Louise became the face and hair of Schwarzkopf's permanent home hair colour, LIVE Salon Style. She also visited Uganda for Comic Relief in September 2011 and helped launch Sport Relief 2012, encouraging people to run 1, 3 or 6 miles for charity.
