When did Jamie and Louise get married?

Jamie and Louise tied the knot in June 1998 and shunned a huge, showbiz wedding.

The couple instead got engaged and married all in the same week, while on holiday in Bermuda.

Louise was just 23 at the time and in 2017 told the Mail Online their nuptials were “private and small” and “perfect”.

She added: “Neither of us wanted a big, glitzy wedding.”

The couple have two sons together, Charley, 15, and Beau, 10.

When did Jamie and Louise get divorced?

The former golden couple split in 2017 after 19 years of marriage following Louise’s stint on Strictly Come Dancing.

Their divorce was then official by 2018.

In February 2021 Louise revealed in her autobiography that she regrets not putting more effort into trying to save the relationship.

She wrote: “I wish I’d tried. I want to say to anyone thinking of running: Just slow down. Don’t run.

“Because once you run too fast, you can’t make up the ground you’ve lost.

“Stop, say what you need, say what you think, don’t be afraid to say what’s really going on. You don’t have to be quiet.”
