Redknapp open to idea of surgery

Louise Redknapp has admitted she is open to the idea of having cosmetic surgery when she gets older.

The 38-year-old singer and TV personality is co-presenting a new six-part consumer series for Channel 4 called How Not To Get Old, and while she wants to stay natural as long as she can, she has not ruled out resorting to cosmetic enhancements further down the line.

Louise revealed: "I'm 38 and in another 10 years' time, my views on ageing will be very different to now.

"I try my best to be healthy 90 per cent of the time. Right now, I'll keep it as natural as I can for as long as I can. But I would never say never to surgery. I didn't go into this show going, 'Right, I'm all about the natural and I think anybody who has surgery is awful'.

"If I got to the stage in life when surgery was an option and an answer, I'd absolutely do it. I just wouldn't rush into it. It's not something that I would start with, I'd go through a few processes first to get there."

But the Naked singer - who has two sons, Charley, nine, and four-year-old Beau, with her husband, former footballer and current sports pundit Jamie Redknapp - also revealed she has become more comfortable with her looks as she has got older.

"I think you always have personal hang-ups, mine change weekly," she said. "As I've got older I feel more comfortable in my ability to trust what I think. You get to a certain age where you're happy to go with the decision you make and, be it wrong or right, it's the decision you make.

"When you're in your twenties or early thirties you beat yourself up a bit and say, 'I wish I'd done this'.

"I've worked for many years, I'm very self-sufficient, and I'm proud of where I've got to in life, so for that, I feel comfortable in my own skin."

:: How Not To Get Old starts on Channel 4 on Wednesday, August 7.
