Ant McPartlin is marrying his fiancee Anne-Marie Corbett in Hampshire this weekend while his ex-wife Lisa Armstrong has taken herself off to Wales for a staycation in a remote luxury hotel with her boyfriend James Green
Ant McPartlin’s ex-wife Lisa Armstrong is holed up in a luxury hotel in Wales this weekend while he marries their former PA Anne-Marie Corbett in Hampshire.
The telly favourite, 45, is preparing to exchange vows with his fiancee at a church in the village of Heckfield before staging a lavish reception at a nearby country house hotel.
Lisa will not be attending the ceremony, and has seemingly taken herself off on holiday to avoid all the fuss.
She’s enjoying a luxury break at the five star Palé Hall hotel in Wales with her boyfriend electrician James Green.
The make-up artist has been sharing pictures of her stay on Instagram, sharing a selfie of the couple and writing: ” #Staycation ” with a string of pink heart emojis.
In another post, she donned a pair of glittery sunglasses as she tried to relax in the sun.
“Typical British weather, just when you get sorted!! #staycation,” she wrote.
She also shared pictures of the couple’s swanky hotel room, showing off the huge wooden bed, glamorous bathroom.
Lisa was previously with Ant for 23 years, with 11 as a married couple, before they split in 2018.
He was later seen spending time with the couple’s former PA Anne-Marie and it was later confirmed they’d become a couple.
A spurned Lisa opted to keep quiet over the news, with the exception of liking a few barbed tweets from her supporters slamming her estranged husband for seemingly moving on so quickly.
She later lost her job on Britain’s Got Talent around the time Ant was planning to return to work following a year off as he battled his drink and drug demons.
Giving away her feelings at the situation, Lisa responded to a tweet that read ‘”Sorry [but] @lisaAmakeup being axed is just… ridiculous !! Why should she be punished?!,’ penning: “Exactly hun.”
Ant is marrying Anne-Marie later today in front of celebrity guests including Holly Willoughby, while his presenting partner Declan Donnelly is his best man.
The couple are throwing a three-day bash for attendees which kicked off on Friday and is expected to last until Sunday when it will be wrapped up with a posh breakfast.
The wedding will be presided over by Rev’d Canon Dr Marion de Quidt, who spoke of her joy at being asked to take part in the nuptials.,
She told the Daily Star: “I’m looking forward to sharing in their joy, and I’m looking forward to the blessings for their future.
“That’s all I can say right now, but God bless, it’s going to be a wonderful time.”
