Louise flaunted her stunning Christmas tree, which was stylishly decorated with pink and red baubles, as she reunited with her ex-husband for the family festivities.
In an accompanying caption, she joked that the day was ‘madness’ as her living room became strewn with crumpled pieces of wrapping paper.
She penned: ‘Christmas Madness. Merry Christmas everyone.’
The former Eternal bandmate also shared a video on her stories admitting that she had been told to ‘stay out of the kitchen’ while the Christmas dinner was prepared.

She seemed unimpressed as she explained that she was instead told to ‘lay the table and get the drinks’ rather than help with the cooking.
Louise said: ‘So today I’ve been told that my job is to stay out of the kitchen and, um, I lay the table and get the drinks!’
Alongside the video, she also wrote: ‘When you’re told to stay out of the kitchen.’
Louise revealed that ‘dinner was served’ as she shared a stunning snap of their giant array of Christmas food, including roast potatoes, carrots, stuffing, peas and turkey.
And Jamie later shared a glimpse of their Christmas on his Instagram stories showing him and sons enjoying a wintery walk with Louise’s two Shar Pei dogs, Rudi and Blu.

Charles sped ahead riding a scooter while his brother followed behind, grinning as he tried to catch up on his bicycle.
Their intimate Christmas celebrations come soon after Louise shared a cryptic social media post hinting that she is a ‘broken mess’.
She took to Instagram earlier this month to share a poem which caught her fans’ attention, as it stated love is worth ‘fighting and trying for’.
The poem the media personality shared with her 716,000 followers read: ‘Some days she’s a warrior. Some days she’s a broken mess.
‘Most days she’s a bit of both. But everyday she’s there. Standing. Fighting. Trying.’

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.’
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.
Children: In March, the singer insisted that she and Jamie have a healthy co-parenting relationship, and they continued to ‘prioritise’ their sons, Charles and Beau
‘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.’
Louise, who has been living with her sons and mother through lockdown, candidly admitted that she still struggles on a daily basis.
She said: ‘I don’t know whether someone ever gets over getting divorced after 20 years and not working for a long period of time and regaining your ability to get back up on stage.’
