Subterranean insect McPartlin stunned fans in January when he declared he would petition for separate from spouse of 11 years, Lisa Armstrong. The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! have uncovered the dismal news by means of an announcement made by his representative. ‘In light of the current theory in the media, Ant is extremely miserable to report that, following 11 years, he is finishing his marriage to Lisa McPartlin’, they disclosed to The Sun On Sunday.
The couple first met back in 1994 on the Smash Hits tour – when Lisa was performing with former band, Deuce and Dec was performing with his best pal Declan Donnelly in PJ & Duncan.
After more than ten years together, Ant finally proposed to his other half whilst the pair were on a romantic holiday in Dubai in April 2005. And just a year later Ant and Lisa tied the knot at a beautiful summer ceremony in Taplow, Buckinghamshire.
Sources disclosed to The Sun that the couple will meet when the arrangement commences in Blackpool, as Ant reunites with co-have Declan Donnelly while Lisa comes back to her obligations as a cosmetics craftsman for the show.
The insider added that Lisa is resolved to come back to function as she ‘needs the cash,’ in spite of cases their separation could be the most costly in Britain’s history with a £31million sticker price.
However, after more than 23 years together, fans started to speculate over their relationship when the Britain’s Got Talent host’s drink and drug problems came to light in June 2017 and he checked himself into rehab.
And following a triumphant return to I’m A Celeb, Ant confirmed fears when moved out of their £1.6million mansion and into a rented house just down the road. Seemingly hinting his marriage was well and truly over, the telly star was then pictured arriving in Newcastle for Christmas on his own and without his wedding ring. *sob* Let’s take a trip down memory lane with Ant and Lisa’s relationship story in pictures…
