Following news of his divorce from Lisa Armstrong, Ant McPartlin and his agent have furiously denied reports he’s struck up a relationship with his Saturday Night Takeaway colleague, Scarlett Moffatt.
Ant, 42, and his rep slammed reports that the pair had been looking cosy at the NTAs as nonsense, after a number of fans commented on their supposed close bond. One even said, ‘Ant McPartlin and Scarlett Moffatt should get together. What a beautiful couple.’
Meanwhile, Lisa Armstrong has plans to revamp her life. An insider tells Woman Magazine, “Lisa isn’t going to let a divorce slow her down or ruin her – instead she has vowed to start afresh.”
According to pals, Lisa, 41, is determined to regain her own identity and has set to work on losing five stone.
Our source continues, “Lisa admitted she turned to comfort eating. But now she’s on a mission to get her figure back and, with that, her confidence.”
And it’s already working wonders. Our insider adds, “Lisa’s told pals that her marriage made her lose herself. She sees this as a new chapter and it’s great to see her taking control.”
This comes after Lisa – who was with Ant for 23 years – took to Twitter to hit back at the recent intrusion she’s faced following her highly publicised split.
Sharing a selfie earlier this month, the Strictly make-up artist wrote, “You’ve probably seen the nasty, intrusive, ugly pics of me, so I thought I’d do your job for you!! It’s creepy.”
Before adding the hashtags, “#please #printthis #pleaseleavemealone #creepymeninbushes #takingmypicture”.
I’m A Celebrity star, Ant – who checked into rehab last year following an addiction to painkillers and depression – announced the sad news he would be filing for divorce from his wife earlier this year.
