The pop star wears suspenders and a cropped dark wig in the latest pictures from the new production, which she made her debut in last month.

Redknapp, who has also recently relaunched her music career, admitted that she was taking some time apart from her husband while she concentrates on work.

“He’s an amazing man and we’ve had 20 good years together. I know he’s trying to understand that I do need to do this,” she told Stella magazine.

Speaking about the future of their relationship she added: “I have no idea what is going to happen, all I know is that I fought for this, it’s taken everything, but this is something I need to do – for me.”

Redknapp– who insisted neither party is pushing for a divorce – said taking part in last year’s Strictly Come Dancing was the first “selfish” thing she has done since becoming a mother to her and Jamie’s sons Charley, 12, and Beau, nine.

She stars opposite Will Young in Rufus Norris’ touring revival of the hit Broadway musical, which opened on September 21 at the New Wimbledon Theatre,

The production has already broken box office records for its 12-show run with huge demand for extra tickets nationwide.
