LOUISE Redknapp has transformed into a beach bombshell.
The Strictly Come Dancing star is set to play Violet in Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5: The Musical, which debuts next year.
Louise Redknapp, 43, has hit the ground running since finalising her divorce from her husband of 19 years, Jamie Redknapp, 45.
Having revived her solo music career with a string of live performances this year, the mum-of-two has jetted of to Los Angeles, California, where she’s recording songs for her fourth studio album.
But’s it hasn’t been all hard work and no play for the Brit beauty, as she’s taken some time to enjoy the sun-soaked location.
Taking to her Instagram profile story, Louise posted a snap of herself lapping up the rays in a plunging black string bikini top.
Rocking an all-over golden glow, Redknapp flashed a wry smile as she relaxed poolside.
Completing her beach-worthy attire in a pair of booty-skimming shorts and sunglasses, the starlet appeared to be making the most of her well-earned break.
Captioning the moment for her 542k followers, she wrote: “Check my hour in the sun before song number four.”
Louise also offered fans a sneak peek of her idyllic sunbathing session when she posted a snap of herself flashing a peace sign next to the rooftop pool.
“Get back in the studio. You’ve got an album to finish”

In the picture posted on her main profile, the former Eternal singer stood with her back to the camera as she enjoyed an uninterrupted view of the Los Angeles skyline.
Introducing the shot, she quipped: “Hate my job,” followed by a smirking face emoji and the hashtag “Album four”.
In response, a fan marvelled: “Very hot, Louise. As always,” alongside a red heart emoji.
Taking a similar approach, a viewer noted: “Louise is so beautiful and stunning,” followed by a heart-eyed emoji.
While one Instagram user teased: “Okay, now you’re showing off. Get back in the studio. You’ve got an album to finish.”
During her business trip in LA, Louise has also found time to catch up with one of her former colleagues.
The singer posted a snap of herself on a night out with Popstars’ head judge Nigel Lythgoe, 69.
As long-time fans may remember, Nigel hired Louise to join the judging panel on the short-lived UK series of So You Think You Can Dance in 2010.
After their catch-up, Louise told her Instagram followers: “It’s been a lot of years and still have loads of love for this great man Nigel Lythgoe.”
