Britain’s Got Talent presenter Ant McPartlin has spoken about his marriage breakdown for the first time – and his ex Lisa Armstrong seems less than impressed.
While the make-up artist didn’t publicly address Ant’s tell-all interview with The Sun – in which he conceded she’s been "everywhere" since their split and appeared to dig at her decision to take her heartbreak to Twitter – she subtly made her feelings known as her ex hit the front pages.
Taking to social media to ‘like’ a tweet from a an outraged fan, Lisa defiantly showed she wasn’t letting Ant’s comments affect her.
The post read: "@lisaAmakeup how can someone say you haven’t been dignified…..? At least you’re not the one selling an exclusive interview to a newspaper for few bob take the dog and run all the love x(sic)."
Addressing his split from Lisa for the first time in the interview, Ant told the publication: "We don’t speak. We haven’t for a while. It’s still ongoing in terms of the legal situation.”
Plus, referring to his ex wife’s very vocal tweets about Anne-Marie, in which she emotionally claimed "she was my friend" and "OUR Pa," he added: "I purposely, throughout the whole of my divorce, have not said anything publicly.
"I’ve not been on social media or put any of my personal views out there. It’s not my style."
Refusing to speak any more about Lisa, he went on: "She can live her life how she wants to live her life and say what she wants but I prefer to keep that private."
Ant’s also took the opportunity to gush about his new girlfriend in the rare interview, claiming she "saved" him after his recent rehab stint.
Ant admitted a joint "turmoil" brought him and Anne Marie together as he praised her for guiding him through his recovery.
The Saturday Night Takeaway star went public with his relationship with PA Anne-Marie just months after announcing his split from Lisa after 23 years togeteher.
Anne-Marie then stuck by Ant’s side as he took ten months off work to concentrate on his sobriety last year, meaning he missed out on the Britain’s Got Talent finals and I’m A Celebrity in autumn.
Mirror Online has contacted Lisa’s representative for comment.
