Louise Redknapp looked chic as she enjoyed a lunch date with a friend in London on Friday.
The singer, 48, wore a grey jacket over a light blue shirt which she teamed with some blue denim jeans.
She wore a pair of grey and black heels and carried a black handbag while she shielded her eyes behind a pair of dark sunglasses.
The pop star looked relaxed as she enjoyed her meal outside at Cecconi’s Mayfair in the UK capital.
Former Eternal singer Louise was seen wearing a silver ring which spelled out the word ‘love’, just days after speaking out on her first new relationship since separating from ex-husband Jamie.

Romance: Former Eternal singer Louise wore a silver ring which spelled out the word ‘love’, just days after speaking out on her first new relationship since separating from ex-husband Jamie.
Louise is dating defence firm boss Drew Michael, 39, following her divorce in 2017, and the pair were spotted leaving The Groucho Club in London together last month.
Last week, Louise gave ITV viewers an insight into her relationship during an appearance on Loose Women.
It comes after she went separate ways with ex-footballer Jamie, 50, after 20 years of marriage. Jamie has since tied the knot with second wife Frida in 2021.
She said: ‘I’m very happy, he’s great, lovely, it’s really nice.
It’s been a really long time for me. It’s lovely to have met somebody that makes me so happy.’
Jamie and Louise share two sons, Charlie, 19, and Beau, 14, while the former footballer also shares a son Raphael, two, with new wife Freda.
Elsewhere on Loose Women it was Louise’s first public appearance since being accused of trying to ‘cancel’ her Eternal bandmates Easther and Vernie Bennett in a bitter trans rights row.
She joined fellow star Kelle Bryan, 48, as they addressed the controversy – with Kelle insisting the joint appearance was not planned and she had been booked to appear on the show as a panellist a month ago.

It was revealed this week that the pair had pulled out of an Eternal reunion tour because Vernie and her sister Easther had refused to play any of the LBGTQ+ gigs they had scheduled over claims the community is being ‘hijacked’ by the trans movement.
Shortly afterwards Louise was accused of trying to get her former bandmates cancelled by ‘misrepresenting’ their views.
Yet in a telling statement, Louise said on Loose Women: ‘I would have always loved to have done a reunion with the girls. I have a lot of love for what we have done together and me and Kelle are still the best of friends.’
Standing by her friend, Kelle added of her time in the band: ‘It’s been life changing for me. Obviously the music and the fans are so important.’
Earlier on Wednesday, Vernie broke her silence on the row, seemingly refuting the claims made by Louise’s team as she released a statement about how she has been ‘blessed to connect with so many diverse and wonderful people from all walks of life during my career.’

Vernie released a statement which read: ‘I am “Eternally” grateful for the family, friends, and amazing fans who have and continue to support our incredible journey and artistry.
‘I’ve been blessed to connect with so many diverse and wonderful people from all walks of life during my career. You all have a piece of my heart.
‘Though it is impossible and counterproductive to respond to the overwhelming number of statements and allegations made online recently, I place this moment in God’s hands.
‘I truly appreciate all who continue to express love and support for my family and Eternal.’
