Louise Redknapp, 45, has claimed Strictly Come Dancing is a “weird” programme, saying she never thought she would be “suckered into something” that attracted a lot of media attention. The former wife of football pundit Jamie Redknapp, 45, shared that she is not one to enjoy being in the limelight and only enjoys performing because it is her “passion”.

She divulged: “It’s a weird programme and, in some ways, I love the fact that it ignited something that reminded me so much of my passion, but I didn’t enjoy it.
“I never thought I would be suckered into something that is so not me. It is so not my world, I’m so not attention-hungry,” she added.
The Eternal singer admitted that she would not consider doing a similar programme again because of the “circus” surrounding it.

Louise appeared on Strictly four years ago and was partnered with Stacey Dooley's now boyfriend Kevin Clifton.
