Louise, 46, took to her Instagram page to upload her sweet photo collection, which as well as the seaside shot where she was sandwiched between Sandra and her mum Lynne Nurding, also saw her posing with her mum as a kid, her Eternal bandmates and Janet Jackson.
She also tagged a fun shot showing her flashing the peace sign alongside a cardboard cut-out of Cher and one showing her kissing her dog.
The final instalment video showed the R&B star strutting her stuff on stage.
In the accompanying caption, the mum of two wrote: “I just wanted to share some of the women in my life who have either inspired me or helped shaped me as woman – THANK YOU.

In February, Louise revealed in her autobiography that she regrets not putting more effort into trying to save the relationship with former footballer Jamie.
She wrote: “I wish I’d tried. I want to say to anyone thinking of running: Just slow down. Don’t run.
“Because once you run too fast, you can’t make up the ground you’ve lost.
“Stop, say what you need, say what you think, don’t be afraid to say what’s really going on. You don’t have to be quiet.”

The former golden couple split in 2017 after 19 years of marriage following Louise’s stint on Strictly Come Dancing.
Their divorce was then official by 2018.
Shortly after their split, Louise’s former mother-in-law admitted it is “too easy” for couples to split in modern marriages.
Sandra and husband Harry commented on modern day romance in a candid joint interview.

Sandra told The Mail On Sunday’s You Magazine: “That was the norm I think, those days… I think it’s too easy now to not make a marriage work.”
Football legend Harry added: “You’ve got to work at it… I mean, we didn’t have to work at it. We just sort of fell in love and stayed that way.”
Harry and Sandra met at the pub, the couple tied the knot four years later in 1967.
That means the pair have been married for 54 years.
