“It’s being a mum and stocking up the fridge. All my boys care about is me being happy – whatever that is.
“It sounds basic, but I’ve got two things that are really important to me right now: my kids, because I want to be a solid part of their life, and my work.
“Right now, that’s enough for me, I’m not saying forever. I’m learning to just be OK with myself. I’m not loving myself, but I’ve been OK. I’m getting there.”
Last month, Louise’s ex Jamie, 48, married girlfriend Frida Andersson, 38, and the newlyweds are currently expecting their first child.

In answer to how she’s feeling at the moment, she says: “I take each day as it comes. I have no expectations in life.
“I am really grateful that I’m surrounded by amazing friends. The most important thing is that they’re with you through good and bad.
“Everyone’s got good and bad times in their lives and you want people by your side through it all. I don’t want fair-weather friends.”
