Former footballer Jamie Redknapp and singer Louise Redknapp have reached an agreement over “financial arrangements” following divorce proceedings, a family court judge has been told.

Judge Sarah Gibbons approved a settlement at a hearing in the Central Family Court in London on Friday.

Lawyers announced the settlement to the judge.

Neither Mr Redknapp, 45, a former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder, nor Mrs Redknapp, 43, a founding member of the band Eternal who reached the final of the BBC’s 2016 Strictly Come Dancing show, were at the hearing.

Another judge had drawn the Redknapps’ 19-year marriage to a close last year.

Judge Ian Mulkis granted a divorce decree at a hearing in the Central Family Court in London on December 29.

Paperwork showed Mrs Redknapp had filed for divorce and claimed the marriage had irretrievably broken down because of Mr Redknapp’s “unreasonable behaviour”.

Mr Redknapp had not mounted any defence to his wife’s divorce application.

Judge Mulkis held that Mr Redknapp had behaved in such a way that Mrs Redknapp could not “reasonably be expected” to live with him and concluded the marriage had “broken down irretrievably”.

Louise Nurding had married Mr Redknapp on a luxury yacht in Bermuda in 1998.

Mr Redknapp’s father Harry, a former Tottenham manager and ex-West Ham winger, was among guests.
