Harry and Sandra Redknapp’s secret row with daughter-in-law Louise ahead of her split with son Jamie

Harry Redknapp and wife Sandra once rowed with former daughter-in-law Louise over what they slammed as her ‘midlife crisis,’ sources close to the family have claimed.

The I’m A Celebrity winner has been joking about setting camp runner-up Emily Atack with his divorced son Jamie as allegations of the Redknapp family’s spat with Louise have re-surfaced.

Jamie and Louise officially split in September last year after 19 years of marriage and two children together.

But before they called it quits, Jamie’s parents Harry and Sandra are said to have voiced their concern over Louise’s behaviour.

After her appearance on Strictly Come Dancing, Louise was said to have ‘thrown away the rule book’ as she embraced hanging out with new and younger pals including model Daisy Lowe.

Harry and Sandra were said to have been huge supporters of Louise and were left disappointed by her sudden change in character, it was reported at the time.

"They’ve been sad to see her partying hard with her new group of friends while Jamie has been filming A League of Their Own,’ an insider told The Sun last year.

"It’s meant Louise’s mum has been left to look after the kids many nights over the last few weeks."

The source added that Louise: "seemed to be in the middle of a mid-life crisis, turning her back on many of the mutual friends she’s shared with Jamie to go out with people half her age."

Harry previously had nothing but nice things to say about the one-time Eternal singer and said he and Sandra were ‘thrilled’ when they got together.

Writing in his 1998 autobiography, he said: "Songstress Louise, who married Jamie in Bermuda in July 1998, is the most down-to-earth girl you could hope to meet.

"She may be a pop-star temptress to the youngsters who read those laddish magazine but to me she’s just a lovely girl who’s married to my youngest son.

"Louise, who made it big with chart-toppers Eternal before becoming a major pop star in her own right, is the least showbizzy person you could imagine.

"She’s so quiet and shy away from the spotlight that I can’t believe she has the front to go live on stage in front of thousands of people.

"I see her in those glamorous videos for her latest record and find it impossible to reconcile the sexy image I see on screen with the Louise who comes to my home with Jamie for Sunday dinner.

"Jamie and her make a lovely couple, so Sandra and I were thrilled when the two of them got married. Jamie couldn’t have met a nicer girl. She’s a very caring person," he gushed.
