Ant McPartlin

Ant's romance has been the talk of tabloids over the past few months ever since he entered rehab for an addiction to painkillers.

Ant McPartlin has revealed that he and wife Lisa are separating following 11 years of marriage.

Ant and Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist Lisa's love story has been adored by many over the years and they have known each other for more than two decades.

In a statement issued by his representative, he shared, "In response to the recent speculation in the media, Ant is very sad to announce that, after eleven years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin".

It continued: "Ant asks for privacy at this hard time, for both himself, Lisa and their immediate families".

"No further statement will be made".

The source added that "it hasn't happened overnight".

They went on to say that Lisa was his priority.

"The marriage has effectively been struggling for eight months".

'They've met up and spoken about it a number of times and this is the decision he has made.

"Ant's big concern in the whole thing is Lisa and making it as easy as possible for her He will obviously look after her in the settlement".

And his health was reportedly a factor in Ant's decision to divorce Lisa, whom he has been with for 23 years and married in 2006.

Ant made a triumphant return to I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here at the end of 2017, looking happy and healthy with best friend Dec out in Australia where they film the award-winning show, after his stint in rehab earlier in the year to tackle his problems with alcohol, substance abuse and prescription drugs. Her fans were quick to offer their support, with one tweeting: "Lots of hugs from a complete stranger (me) but heartfelt", while another added: "Sending you hugs sweetheart - even in the darkest of situations you always need to find the positives".

It's been said Lisa has already hired lawyers to represent her in the divorce.
