Ant McPartlin’s ex Lisa Armstrong has ‘liked’ a tweet about ‘not giving up on marriage’, despite their split being announced at the start of the year.

The make-up artist showed her support for a message which championed working on a relationship regardless of the ups and downs it might go through.

“Ya wanna know what a real relationship goal is?” the Twitter post reads. “Going against all odds in a relationship choosing to make It work regardless of the circumstances, trials, and tribulations bc that’s the story of how most of our grandparents made It to 50+ years of marriage. You don’t give up.”

Lisa, 41, clicked ‘like’ on the statement just days after Ant, 42, was seen on a night out with rumoured new girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett, Declan Donnelly and Dec’s pregnant wife Ali Astall in London over the weekend.

This comes after Lisa appeared to react angrily to the allegations that Ant is dating former PA Anne-Marie when the news emerged last month.

“To think she was MY friend!!’” she wrote on Twitter, before replying to a post reading “Im so sorry for you he was seemingly hiding someone all along  you deserve so much more than that” by writing back: “Yeah My Friend and OUR Pa who I let into OUR home.”

Following the reports Lisa made a big statement by finally changing her Twitter cover photo from one of her and Ant to a snap of her alone with their beloved pet dog Hurley.

Recently the Strictly Come Dancing make-up star has been spending time in Los Angeles away from the drama.

Ant announced the end of his marriage to Lisa back in January, 12 years after they tied the knot.

There was further trouble for Ant in March when he was arrested for drink-driving following a car crash in London.

He was fined £86,000 for the offence and disqualified from driving for 20 months, having been found to be twice over the legal limit when the incident happened.

In court the TV star explained that he had been struggling to cope following the end of his marriage to Lisa and was seeking treatment for ‘alcohol and emotional issues’.
