Louise Redknapp has warned any potential suitors that they will finish fourth in her life, behind her children, her career – and her dogs.

The singer is back on the market after her split from husband Jamie Redknapp, the father of her two sons Charley, 14, and Beau, 10.

She told the MailOnline that if the man of her dreams does show up he will have to be comfortable with ranking beneath the other important things in her life.

“'I am single,” said the star.

“And anyway, whoever steps in, in the future - if anyone does at all - they will have to understand that they'll be fourth in line.”

Redknapp went on: “They will have to be okay with being behind my kids, my work, and my dogs!”

The singer and former Strictly Come Dancing star and the retired footballer called time on their 19-year marriage in 2017.

She has since said that the pair are still very close and that Jamie is her “best friend”.

Redknapp is now gearing up to unveil her new album Heavy Love, and she hinted that it may touch on what she has been through in her personal life.

The new music comes from a “very honest place”, she said.

“It's impossible at my age not to draw upon personal experiences anyway, when making new music,” said the 44-year-old.

“I'm confident that it won’t be dishonorable or unkind and it's not negative about anyone.

“I wouldn't try and set tongues wagging to sell a few more records.

“I make music because I love to.”

Redknapp’as last studio album was Elbow Beach, which she released in 2000.
