Louise Redknapp loves wearing ''beautiful cosy oversized jumpers''.

The 42-year-old singer - who is known for being a member of the girl band Eternal - loves to ''reframe challenges'' into positives, and while some people complain about the drop in temperatures she embraces it because she enjoys wrapping up and adorning warm knitwear during the harsh weathers.

Speaking about how she tackles the winter months, Louise - who has teamed up with Actimel as part of their latest winter campaign - said: ''Winter can be a challenge, especially at this time of year when the weather is really cold. I like to try and tackle winter with a positive attitude and a little resilience. I try to reframe the challenges and turn them into positives, such as being able to wear beautiful cosy oversized jumpers and warm coats to wrap up against the cold. This is the time of year when I don't feel guilty about curling up on the sofa and relaxing, because it's too dark outside to do anything. It's fun to tackle winter head on with the right attitude.''

And the brunette beauty - who has sons Beau and Charles with her retired footballer husband Jamie Redknapp - believes staying active also helps her to combat the cold.

She said: ''Even though its winter and cold outside, I love being wrapped up warm and going for a walk with the dogs. If you get a pace on, you hardly notice its freezing. It's refreshing and leaves you feeling uplifted and positive. Long walks on Bournemouth beach are even better!''

And Louise - who was the runner up on last year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' - has admitted she has included dancing into her fitness regime since leaving the show, and regularly undergoes pilates and yoga sessions when she wants ''me time''.

She explained: ''Pilates and yoga are great for core strength and finding some 'me' time. I do it in the morning and it helps me positively take on the day.

''Dancing has really become a part of my life - it's so much fun and doesn't feel like a work out - until the next day!''

As part of the campaign Louise will be taking on Actimel's giant snow globe in King's Cross station, and has urged others to take part in the challenge to win a MINI Cooper Convertible.
