Ant McPartlin’s ex spouse Lisa Armstrong took to Twitter last night after it was reported the presenter had agreed to pay her £31 million in a divorce deal. The estranged couple, who wed back in 2006, confirmed they had gone their separate ways two years ago.
Ant McPartlin made a very generous settlement that works out to be more than half of everything that he has
And now The Sun has said the ITV star, 44, had settled his legal battle with the make-up artist, 43, at a meeting in London on Tuesday.
If they are correct, it would be one of the biggest celebrity divorce settlements in British history.
Ant was said to be “delighted” to have resolved the issue, with Lisa keeping their former home in west London, said to be worth £5 million.
However, the latter cast doubt on the reports in view of her 143,000 Twitter followers last night.

A source had initially told the newspaper: “They both decided they wanted it resolved.
“Ant and Lisa agreed to settle and sign their divorce agreement during a productive and civil meeting on Tuesday.”
The insider continued: “Ant made a very generous settlement that works out to be more than half of everything that he has.
“He is delighted because it means he can put what has been a very difficult chapter in his life behind him and move on.”
But sharing a headline which read: “Ant McPartlin’s ex-wife @lisaAmakeup denies she is getting £31m in divorce settlement,” she denied it.
Lisa replied, writing: “I deny it cos it’s not true…”
She went on to respond to a number of users, one of which had told her: “And, more than well deserved, too, @lisaAmakeup if this is true!”

A second told her: “Really feeling sorry for @lisaAmakeup… So many papers are speculating the millions she will be receiving… From what I have read on social media she doesn’t give a [email protected]*t about the cash, it’s the hurt which she has suffered.”
She added simply: “Thanks Steve…”
In The Sun’s exclusive report, they said the couple had agreed to share permanent custody of their dog Hurley.
And that she was not entitled to Ant’s future earnings as part of the deal.
