Ant McPartlin 'Pays Legal Bills For Ex Lisa Armstrong In A Bid To Get Split Settlement Finalized'


Ant McPartlin is reportedly paying his ex-wife Lisa Armstrong's legal bills in a bid to get their split settlement finalised before Christmas.

According to The Mirror, the TV presenter, 42, hopes he and the Strictly make-up guru, 42, will finalise their divorce in the next few weeks so everyone can 'move on.'

It was claimed the Saturday Night Takeaway star is paying Lisa's legal bills and also funded her recent holiday to Los Angeles.

The former couple were granted a decree nisi last month, after 12 years of marriage.

Lisa is said to be in line for a settlement of around £30m, or half of everything Ant earned during their marriage.

The pair also shares custody of their dog Hurley.

A source told the website: 'Ant is paying for all of Lisa's legal fees.
'He is still helping her financially with other expenses, like when she went on holiday to LA.

'It is amicable and things are moving forward. Ant wants it done as quickly and fairly as possible so they can move on with their lives.'

The source added Ant hopes to settle in 'weeks rather than months.'

He is now in a relationship with the couple's former PA Anne-Marie Corbett.

A spokesman for Ant declined to comment to MailOnline.

MailOnline has also contacted a representative for Lisa for comment.

Just days ago, the TV host finalised his divorce with his teenage sweetheart in court after they announced the end to their marriage in January.

There is no love lost between the former flames who were romantically together for 23 years.

Court documents revealed that McPartlin had 'committed adultery' with his new girlfriend Anne-Marie and that his former wife found it 'intolerable to live with' the TV star.

Under divorce laws, Ant technically had to admit adultery because he was still married when the relationship began.
He has since been seen out with Anne-Marie, who was the ex-couple former PA and has even made the background on his mobile phone.

Lisa has not commented but liked Twitter comments from friends telling her 'good things come to kind people' and 'pull on your big girls pants, it's your turn to start afresh'.

Since learning of her former colleague's relationship with her estranged husband, Lisa has revealed that she didn't know the two were dating until she saw pictures of them together in a newspaper.

In 2017, Ant entered rehab after struggling with a two-year addiction to super-strength painkillers following a knee operation in 2015.

In April, three months after announcing his split from Lisa, he was banned from the road for 20 months and fined £86,000 for driving while more than twice the legal limit.
After the incident and another rehab visit, Ant announced that he is stepping down from all his TV commitments and will not appear on the next series of I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

It has since been revealed that Holly Willoughby will replace the presenter on the hit ITV Australian jungle series with his co-host Declan Donnelly later this year.
