Louise divorced the Sky Sports pundit in December 2017 after 19 years of marriage.
Jamie is now dating Swedish model Frida Andersson-Lourie, which is thought to be his first confirmed relationship since his split from Louise.
In August, a source told The Sun: ‘Jamie feels ready to move on from Louise and is happy to be doing it with someone who has kids too and is financially secure.
‘It’s early days for Jamie and Frida, but they have grown close and are really enjoying spending time together when they can.’
Support: Dozens of people replied to Louise’s post sending their love, with some also admitting they were finding the latest lockdown difficult

Louise previously credited her divorce with giving her the courage to restart her music career.
Appearing on Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s podcast Spinning Plates, she said: ‘I suppose it took something quite big to happen in my life to think I’ve got nothing more to lose.
‘Like I feel like I’ve lost such a lot anyway that what’s my musical dignity when I’ve lost all of this anyway?

‘It took something sad and big in my life to maybe give me the courage to go, “oh, I’ll just give it a go, what’s the worst that can happen?”‘
She added: ‘I’m pleased I did it and I think I learned as well that you can still be a really good mum and it’s okay. I think I told myself for so long that I can’t have it all.
‘You can go away and you can work and you can be out of the house for a period of time without letting your kids down. It’s almost like I felt like you couldn’t have both.
‘I used to think you can only have both if you’re really famous and you’re really big and you’re going on massive tours where all of your family can come. And actually, no, you can.’
