She might have walked the red carpet solo on BRITs night, but Louise Redknapp was joined by an old friend for the after-parties.
According to insiders at the Warner Music and Ciroc Vodka event, the eternal singer was spotted ‘cosying up’ to her former Strictly Come Dancing partner Kevin Clifton.
Earlier in the night, Kevin, 35, had been appearing at a Bruce Forsyth tribute at the London Palladium alongside with wife Karen.
With the Palladium being a short walk to the Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden where Louise, 43, was partying, Kevin is said to have joined her after the show.

An insider at the bash claimed Louise and Kevin were seen in a dark corner ‘talking really closely,’ according to The Sun .
“He was leaning in towards her and they were deep in conversation. They were there for ages while everyone else partied around them,” the source told the paper.
“At one point, Pixie Lott came over to say hello, but for the rest of the time it was just him and Louise,” they added.

Mirror Online has contacted representatives for comment.
Earlier in the night, newly single Louise was spotted leaving the BRIT Award ceremony in the company of a mystery man.
It’s not clear who the sharp-suited guest is in relation to her, but he rested a protective arm on her back as they left the venue.
Louise was dressed in a multi-coloured, semi-sheer dress that showed off plenty of her toned pins.

Ahead of the BRIT Award ceremony, Louise’s pal Kevin featured on his wife’s social media pages -for the first time in months.
Following reports their three year marriage was on the rocks, Karen shared a photo and then a video of the pair deep in rehearsal for their upcoming tour.
Karen and Kevin sparked rumours their relationship was in crisis last year when they didn’t dance together during the Strictly finale.
For Christmas, Karen then flew to New York to spend it with her family while Kevin remained in the UK.

Kevin was spotted not wearing his wedding ring, fuelling speculation.
However, in January this year Karen shot down any rumours of a rift.
“Kevin and I start our own tour in May which we are really looking forward to,” she told the Sunday Mirror’s Talk TV. “We are really excited and we are creating right now and just talking through everything,” she said.
