Louise Redknapp is apparently planning on ringing in the New Year by celebrating with friends following her divorce from her now ex-husband Jamie Redknapp.

The couple had been married for 19 years before their divorce was made official on December 29. The singer and Strictly Come Dancing star is set to start off 2018 by going clubbing on New Year’s Eve.

A friend of the former Eternal vocalist told The Mirror: "She’s really excited to celebrate with pals out on the town - it’s the first time she’s ever done -anything like this.

"She’s booked to perform some of her solo hits at GAY nightclub in London in front of friends. They plan to have a drink on the VIP gallery and enjoy the atmosphere and then hit up some other venues.

"She’s really going to let her hair down and celebrate the new year truly meaning the start of a new chapter for her."
