Wearing only a silky bra, the 45-year-old flashed the tattoo, which had been inscribed in black ink in capital letters on the back of her neck.

With her hair pulled back, fans can see the artwork in all its glory, just peeking out from underneath her hair.

She kept the picture’s caption short and sweet, writing simply: “LOVER.”

Louise’s followers went into meltdown and were eager to tell her what they thought of the body art.

One fan said: “You look stunning!”

A second fan added: “LOVE THIS.”

A third fan commented: “Looks good.”

The candid snap was taken just after the release of Louise’s brand new album Heavy Love with some of the tracks inspired by her divorce from ex-footballer Jamie.

Earlier this month Louise revealed she still adores Sky Sports pundit Jamie and co-parents Charley, 15, and 11-year-old Beau with him.

The pair split in 2017 after 19 years of marriage and what followed was a long and painful public fallout which led to her disappearing from the spotlight for a while.

The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant said: “I adore him and always will. Jamie was the absolute love of my life.

“I guess I was happy to be invisible for a little while, but at the same time I felt I was becoming less and less of a person. And being less and less visible was kind of hard to take when I used to be a pop star.”

In the aftermath of releasing the new album, it’s been rumoured the pop singer might be the Octopus on ITV’s The Masked Singer.

Ex-Manchester United player Teddy Sheringham, who was unveiled as the tree on the hit show, believes she might be behind the purple and yellow outfit.

Speaking to the Express, he said: “Maybe Louise Redknapp, because she has a new album coming out, whether that’s true or not, I don’t know, but releasing an album, the show could be good for her maybe?”

With just a few weeks left of the competition, fans will not have to wait long to find out.
