Louise Redknapp has said she felt judged by school gate mums after her marriage fell apart
She went on: "I have always tried to be at pick-up unless I am working, but I have never lingered for the car-park chats and I am not interested in gossiping about which child has done what, or who has won something or is going off to a certain school."
The singer adds that this made the school run in the period after her split from ex Jamie to be particularly stressful for her.

The comments come after Louise herself admitted that she felt "scared" to write about the most recent years in her life in hew new book, You've Got This.
"I think most probably the last few years of my life," she told Alex Jones and Ronan Keating on The One Show on Thursday.
"I think I can talk about Eternal, being just me and my mum for many years.
"The last few years I really have learned so much and I think those were the chapters that I was most scared about putting out."

She later added: "I was going through a hard time and I think what I did learn is you do have to get broad shoulders in life sometimes," Louise described, "and surround yourself with good people, keep your chin up and keep going. My boys were an absolute saviour, my mum…"
Louise clarified that the book us "not about divorce" and "it goes right through the years" of her life.
