Hitting out: Ant McPartlin’s ex-wife Lisa Armstrong has taken a swipe at the star and his team in a shocking Instagram comment

Lisa, who has found love again with boyfriend James Green, was married to Ant, who married the couple’s former employee Anne-Marie Corbett last month, for 12 years and were a couple for 23 years.

They confirmed their split in 2018, following Ant’s stint in rehab the previous year where he sought treatment for painkiller addiction.

There has been much mud-slinging over the years with Lisa often taking to Twitter to vent her fury over the split and she has now taken to Simon’s Instagram, following Thursday night’s National Television Awards. 

His initial message read: ’20 years! So so proud of my amazing friends @antanddec for winning Best TV Presenter at the #NTAs @officialntas for the 20th year in a row!..

‘And proud to say I have been with them at the awards every year of those 20 wins. We’ve been on an brilliant journey so far and long may it continue.’

In response to her message, he then wrote: ‘Lisa, please don’t come on to my Instagram with your negativity and false accusations…

‘It really is about time you moved on and got on with your life, and stopped unfairly blaming other people for your mistakes.’

Following rehab, Ant took a year out from TV and he and Lisa parted ways, with their divorce being finalised in April 2020.

Last year, Ant was reported to have handed over £31 million to Lisa, including their £5m home in West London, after an ‘eight-hour negotiation’. 

Lisa is understood to have felt that Ant ‘got away with a lot’ following their split.  

A source close to the couple said: ‘Ant has been very generous in terms of the financial settlement but Lisa is totally the opposite of someone who is motivated by money. She doesn’t care about that – she earns her own….

‘But she has been so hurt by all of this’.

Ant and Anne-Marie tied the knot at Heckfield in Hampshire last month in a lavish, star-studded ceremony. During his speech at their reception the TV presenter told 100 guests: ‘This beautiful woman saved my life.’

They got together after he was involved in an accident, crashing his Mini while over the drink-drive limit in April 2018. Their relationship was slammed by Lisa, who tweeted: ‘To think she was MY friend. My friend and OUR PA who I let into our home.’ 

She then went on to reveal that she did not know about the romance and had only found out about the new relationship after reading about it in the media.
