I don’t feel like my day has started until I’ve had a tea or coffee. I love a Nespresso. Breakfast is brown toast with tomatoes. If I’m tired, I have to stop myself dipping into the biscuit tin.
Beau, 11 [her youngest son with her ex-husband, former Liverpool player Jamie] has football on a Saturday, so I put on tracksuit bottoms, trainers and a Pangea hoodie. It takes three attempts to get him out of bed and we run out of the door with his breakfast wrapped in tinfoil.
Beau’s signed to Chelsea’s under-12s team and parents aren’t supposed to shout during their matches. Sometimes I do and get told I won’t be allowed to go if I do it again.
We head over to my eldest son’s school to watch his rugby match. Charley, 16, plays for Surrey and would quite like to do it on a professional level.
Lunch is often a tuna-salad wrap for me and a sausage sandwich with grilled onions and loads of ketchup for the boys. When lockdown happened, I had a panic, but it was good for all of us to spend so much time together. In March I’d taken three weeks off from 9 to 5 : The Musical in the West End to do my music tour [she released an album in January], and I was supposed to go back until August. I don’t know whether it will finish its run, but I’m doing a one-off show at the Clapham Grand in early October.
I prance around in different outfits and my digital manager, Lewis, takes the pictures for my new lifestyle blog Lou Loves. The minute we start, my dogs, Rudi, Blu and Corky – two Shar Peis and a Jura-hound cross – surround me.
I change into jeans, a sweater and heels to meet jewellery designer Roxanne First to work on our anklet collaboration. I like a Saint Laurent heel – the higher, the better.
I hate cooking. On Saturdays, it’s always spaghetti bolognaise. Charley’s mates come round to line their stomachs before they go out. If I have an alcoholic drink with my dinner, it will be a nice tequila, such as Don Julio.
I’m not a great sleeper, so I read You Are a Rainbow by Emma Lucy Knowles, about auras and being positive. I never go to bed before midnight.
My go-to beauty product is…
Chanel’s water-based foundation. I mix it with my moisturiser. It doesn’t look like I have make-up on, but evens out any blemishes.
I couldn’t live without…
A good sound system. I can’t listen to music unless it’s loud, which has annoyed my neighbours more than once.
My guilty pleasure is...
Watching Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons on Netflix. I really like documentaries where you see what goes on in parts of the world that we would never experience.
