Louise Redknapp Pulls Out Of Eternal Re-Union Following LGBTQ Row

Louise Redknapp has reportedly pulled out of a mooted Eternal re-union.

The girl group scored a string of fantastic hits, with 1993 debut album ‘Always & Forever’ hitting No. 2 on its release – in all, it went four times platinum.

The group split in 2000, but seemingly the original four-piece line-up have been tapped up to play a series of live shows. Potentially the first full Eternal live shows for two decades, the move involved sisters Easther and Vernie Bennett, with Kéllé Bryan and Louise Redknapp rejoining the fold.

According to The Sunday Mirror, some shows involved Pride events, while Eternal were also in line to play at London’s high profile Mighty Hoopla festival. Seemingly, Easther and Vernie Bennett objected to performing at these shows, due to the events’ “allegiance with the trans community”.

The reports state that Louise Redknapp and Loose Women star Kéllé Bryan quit the reunion in June – the siblings aim to tour as Eternal together.

Breaking her silence on the reports – and the attendant social media discussion – Louise Redknapp shared an image of the Pride flag, writing: “Always and forever”.
