Louise Redknapp has given fans a peek at her budding romance with Drew Michael in a series of Instagram snaps from their weekend at Glastonbury.

The former Eternal singer and businessman Michael headed to Somerset at the weekend to see the likes of Coldplay and Dua Lipa on stage. And they looked seriously smitten with each other as they cuddled up and posed for pictures, with one sweet shot showing them locking lips.

“Thank you Glastonbury 2024,” Redknapp captioned the image, as fans posted heart emojis in the comments section. “Love this!” said the star’s friend Denise Van Outen. One fan said the pair were “too cute” and another posted: “Made for each other, woo hoo!!”

Redknapp and Michael are thought to have been an item since 2023, getting together around six years after Redknapp and her former husband Jamie Redknapp called time on their marriage.

We take a look inside their romance.

Redknapp was married to her footballer husband in 1998 and they share two sons - Charles, 19 and Beau, 15. It looked like one of the happiest couplings in showbiz but in 2017 the couple broke up and went on to get a divorce.

The star is thought to have been single for a while after they went their separate ways but in 2022 there were reports that she was dating again. Then in early 2023 she did tell The Times that she had an “open heart for what the future may bring”.

It isn't known how Redknapp and Michael got together, but are thought to have kept their budding relationship on the down low at first.

Then in September last year they were photographed out together in London. The pair were seen leaving Jimmy Carr’s birthday party at The Groucho Club, sparking speculation about whether they were an item.

Redknapp didn't keep fans guessing too long and appeared to make her romance Instagram official in November 2023, when she uploaded a string of photos of her celebrating Michael’s birthday with him to her grid.

The images showed the star at a restaurant with Michael, who works in the aerospace and defence industry. They were joined by Redknapp’s son Charles.

The star has continued to share the odd glimpse into her romance, dropping a few photographs from a ski trip earlier this year. Posted on Instagram, the images showed Redknapp and Michael at a snowy resort, whooshing down the slopes and enjoying meals in the winter sunshine.

Fans loved seeing the star enjoying herself with her new love, with one posting in the comments section: “Lovely to see you so happy.” “Looking great together,” said another.

Redknapp has played her cards fairly close to her chest and hasn’t said too much about Michael, but she did open up a little bit on ITV’s Loose Women.

The star said her new beau made her “so happy”. "I'm very happy, he's great, lovely,” she said.
