"He’s had a tough time of it, but Anne-Marie has put a smile back on his face again," the source said.

"She has been his rock. They have been living in each other’s pockets, day in, day out.

"Knowing someone is there for him has brought him back from the brink — she’s put him back together again.

"It’s very early days, but everyone is hoping he can put the worst year of his life behind him and find happiness again. Both of them deserve it."

Ant and Lisa announced that they were going their separate ways in January after over 23 years together and 11 years of marriage.
