Louise Redknapp goes public with new boyfriend on Pride Of Britain red carpet

Louise Redknapp and her new boyfriend Drew Michael took their relationship public as the businessman joined the music star at the Pride of Britain awards.

While Louise, 48, posed alone on the red carpet, Drew joined her inside the awards, where the pair posed for photos.

For the star-studded awards ceremony, Louise sported a black suit with a sheer lace shirt and black bra, while Drew opted for a dark blue suit, which he paired with a striped tie.

It comes after Louise became embroiled in a row with her former Eternal bandmates Easther and Vernie Bennett, after they refused to play at Mighty Hoopla because of its ties to the trans community.

This led to Louise and Kéllé Bryan walking away from the reunion, with Louise said to be now leaning on Drew for support amid the highly publicised nature of the row.

A source close to the new couple told OK!: "Louise is really relying on Drew at the moment and she’s very thankful she’s got him by her side.

"It took a while to find him but she’s finally happy and comfortable to be seen with him, and she really needs his support at the moment."

They added: "Louise has received a lot of backlash from this. Her relationship with Vernie and Easther won’t be the same again.

"She’s relying on new guy Drew, and he really stepped up to the mark for her, which is a good sign."

And while Louise may be leaning on Drew for support, it's also been reported that Louise's friends are worried about her new relationship, amid concerns over how things allegedly ended in Drew's last relationship.

A source told Closer Magazine: "Drew didn't behave in the best way in a former relationship – he left one girl in particular feeling hurt.

"It’s good news that he’s happy dating Louise, but there is a worry that she could end up heartbroken."

However, it's not all doom and gloom as the source added to the publication: "Her friends love seeing how happy she is, but naturally they’re protective of her and they don’t want her to rush things.

"They want her to find someone she can be with long-term, and they’re hoping that that’s Drew."

News of Louise's new romance came just a couple of months after the star told The Sun that she wasn't "actively" seeking a fresh romance, although it seems she has since it seems that romance still found her.
