Ant McPartlin's estranged wife Lisa Armstrong is keen to 'save their marriage'

The pair have been separated for some time - and three-and-a-half months ago they confirmed that they planned to divorce.

However, as Ant McPartlin receives treatment for his addiction issues, it seems that his estranged wife, Lisa Armstrong, is willing to reconsider their relationship.

Ant and Lisa have been married for 11 years and were together for 23.

The Daily Star reports:

"Lisa’s gone through all the emotions you face when you have a difficult break-up - heartache, anger and disappointment.

"She’s had time apart from Ant and it’s given her a chance to reflect and think about the future.

"Lisa has decided the marriage could be worth fighting for. She thinks getting a divorce any time soon could be a mistake."

BGT host McPartlin, 42, stepped down from his television roles and re-entered rehab following his arrest for drink-driving back in March.

He later pleaded guilty and was convicted in a London court of the offence; as a result, he was banned from driving for 20 months and was fined £86,000 (€97,500).

Lisa, 41, works as an in-demand makeup artist - heading the makeup department on Strictly Come Dancing among other gigs.

Last year, Ant spent two months in rehab for an addiction to painkillers he developed following a knee operation.

Announcing their divorce in January, the TV presenter's spokesperson had said that Ant was "very sad to announce" the end of his marriage.

It was added: "Ant asks for privacy at this difficult time, for both himself, Lisa and their immediate families. No further statement will be made."
