Louise Redknapp has revealed her plans after Strictly – London's West End theatre world
The former pop singer, 42, says she has been rejuvenated after years away from the spotlight being a mum to her two boys Charley and Beau.
“The thing that would be worth taking time away from my family for would be to do theatre in the West End,” she told Day & Night.
“I’m not looking for TV stuff, although Loose Women would be fun. Appearing in the West End for a period is really what I’m looking for.”

Louise, married to former footballer Jamie, 43, says she is realistic about rekindling a pop career.
“I’d love to go back to singing on my own but it’s just so hard. I think you get to an age where it is really tough to be a pop singer.
“Just because I’m on Strictly doesn’t mean people are going to buy my albums but I’m doing a few duets on a few nice albums coming up.”

Louise first rose to prominence in the early 1990s with girl band Eternal.
She then enjoyed solo success with the album Naked, which sold more than a million copies.
After her music career began to flag she turned her hand to television presenting with stints on ITV’s This Morning and Channel 4’s Something For The Weekend.

Neil Diamond has sold more than 120 million records and has written many karaoke favourites such as Sweet Caroline, Cracklin’ Rosie, I’m A Believer and Forever In Blue Jeans.
But the 75-year-old admits that even he is not immune to a touch of stage fright.
“The most nervous I have ever been was in 1985 when I attended a White House dinner in honour of Prince Charles and Princess Diana,” he tells the Sunday Post.

“Looking around the room as I sang, it all seemed so unreal. Some of the most famous faces in the world were watching me.
“When I stepped off the stage Princess Diana asked if it was proper in America for a lady to ask a gentleman to dance. That’s how I came to dance with her. She was a lovely lady.”
With President Ronald and wife Nancy Reagan among the admiring crowd, they made a delightful duo.
He is one of the most successful actors in the industry so it makes you wonder why Ben Affleck is so adamant that his brood does not follow in his footsteps.
“I wouldn’t want my children to be child actors and I would not allow them to do that. I would want them to have a more normal and reasonable childhood,” says the former child actor – who made his screen debut at the age of nine.
“If they want to make those kinds of terrible choices once they get to be adults they are free to do that but it’s not the kind of thing that I would be encouraging.”
He has three children with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner and considering the 44-year-old star has amassed a fortune of more than £60million, picked up two Academy Awards and even dated Jennifer Lopez, surely it’s not such a terrible career choice?

Pixie Lott stepped out in style this weekend to celebrate her 26th birthday with a Roaring Twenties-themed night – and made sure all eyes were on her.
As she sauntered up to swanky club Albert’s, in London’s chic Kensington, in her glad-rags she looked intent on proving that blondes do indeed have more fun.
The pop singer went all out with her vintage look wearing a semi-sheer crystal encrusted flapper-style dress with a stole, finger-waved hair and vampy make-up.

Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that it took him multiple attempts to get a driving licence.
“I took so many driving tests because I was so out of it. On one occasion I nodded off during the test,” the 68-year-old Black Sabbath singer tells Q Magazine.
“When I woke up there was a note on the seat saying, ‘You have failed’.”
It is, perhaps, unsurprising that the so-called Prince of Darkness can’t keep his eyes open during the daytime.
And even once he had passed his test his wife Sharon, 64, kept a close eye on him.
He adds: “I bought a Ferrari then went out on the ****.
Sharon went, ‘You’re not having this!’ It’s not a good idea is it – Ozzy Osbourne and a Ferrari?”
We dread to think what might have happened.

"It got to the point where people would phone my agent and ask, 'Can James do a Scottish accent?'" Having faked being a posh Englishmen to get ahead in the industry, it seems Scotsman James McAvoy was too convincing.
