Ant McPartlin speaks publicly about divorce from Lisa Armstrong for the first time

Ant McPartlin has spoken publicly about his divorce for the first time since his split from ex Lisa Armstrong.

The television personality and makeup artist announced their separation early last year ahead of Ant's drink driving offence.

They had been married for 11 years.

Ant has since spoken about the divorce for the first time since he and Lisa split, saying that they "don't speak" and haven't done so "for a while."

"It’s still ongoing in terms of the legal situation," he explained to The Sun in his first interview since he was arrested in early 2018.

Ant said that although Lisa has been "everywhere" since the pair finalised their divorce, he opted to keep a low profile and not speak so openly about his private life.

“I purposely, throughout the whole of my divorce, have not said anything publicly," he said. 

“I’ve not been on social media or put any of my personal views out there. It’s not my style. She can live her life how she wants to live her life and say what she wants but I prefer to keep that private.”

Fair.

Ant and new partner Anne-Marie Corbett made things official last summer, much to the disdain of Lisa who took to Twitter to call out the relationship. 

Ant, however, has said that he's never been happier with the former PA in his life.

“Anne-Marie honestly is the fundamental reason for the great change in my life," he said. 

“She’s been my rock. She’s a beautiful soul. We’re very happy. I’m in the best place I’ve been in my life, to be honest with you. It’s great.”
