A British TV star has left his ex wife fuming after he’s embarked on a new romance — with her mate.

Lisa Armstrong has taken to Twitter to express her pain at the fact her estranged hubby, Ant McPartlin, has moved on from their 11-year-marriage with her former friend Anne-Marie.

In a series of tweets, Lisa revealed she was broken hearted after discovering her famous other half had moved on since their split in October last year, after photographs of them emerged looking cosy.

She first addressed the news that Ant — who is one half of comedy duo Ant and Dec — was seeing Anne-Marie in a tweet with two broken heart emoji’s.

After, the 42-year-old responded to questions from concerned fans who had reached out over the shock new romance.

Lisa, who had been in a relationship with Ant since 1994, went on to describe that Anne-Marie was a person she’d invited into her marital home and had once given her a job as their personal assistant.

Lisa, who shares a chocolate labrador called Hurley with Ant, also claimed her former partner hasn’t been in touch to tell her the news himself.

Back in May 2017, Lisa shared a photo of herself with Ant’s now rumoured girlfriend calling her “my homie”.

Five months later, Ant, 42, released a statement last October that he was leaving his wife following weeks of speculation.

“In response to the recent speculation in the media, Ant is very sad to announce that, after 11 years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin,” his spokesperson said in a statement to The Sun.

The split has been far from amicable, with Lisa appearing to take a series of thinly-veiled jabs at him on her social media account.

In March, the star — who hosts I‘m A Celebrity in the UK — was arrested for drink driving after crashing his car in London and later pled guilty.
