Lisa Armstrong pictured beaming from ear to ear days after divorce from Ant McPartlin
Lisa Armstrong’s divorce from Ant McPartlin was made official this week – and she couldn’t look happier about it.
The make-up artist was all smiles as she left her home, two days after she and Ant were granted a decree nisi to end their 11-year marriage in court.
Lisa, 41, flashed a wide grin at waiting paparazzi as she wore a jazzy pair of heart-shaped sunglasses for her outing.
Sporting short lilac hair, Lisa also wore a statement leapoard print coat and toted a bright yellow handbag as she headed out and about in London.
Lisa kept quiet following her divorce from Ant, 42, instead choosing to like a number of telling tweets from followers.
One, which Lisa liked on the day of their hearing at the Central Family Court, read: ‘Hope all goes well for you today and you get the outcome you deserve. Keep that dignified silence and hold that beautiful head up high. Sending hugs. Stay strong.’
And another read: ‘I have been impressed by how well you’ve held yourself this year in what must have been a bloody hideous time.’
Ant and Lisa, who got married in 2006 but announced their separation in January this year, were granted a divorce on the grounds of adultery, based on Ant starting a relationship with Anne-Marie Corbett after he separated from Lisa, but while they were still legally married.
The papers – with Lisa Marie McPartlin cited as the petitioner and Anthony David McPartlin as the respondent – read: ‘The Judge held that the respondent has committed adultery and that the petitioner finds it intolerable to live with the respondent, that the marriage solemnised on 22nd July 2006 at St Nicolas’ Church in the Parish of Taplow in the County of Buckinghamshire between Lisa Marie McPartlin the Petitioner and Anthony David McPartlin the Respondent has broken down irretrievably and decreed that the said marriage be dissolved unless sufficent cause be shown to the Court within six weeks from the making of this decree why such decree should not be made absolute.’
Ant and Lisa will be allowed to apply for a decree absolute, which will officially and legally end their marriage, in six weeks. The papers also reveal that an order that the Respondent shall pay the costs of the Petitioner has been permitted.
Lisa was back on television a day after the divorce hearing, as she gave a make-up tutorial on Strictly: It Takes Two.
The star was not wearing her wedding ring for the appearance, which saw her performing a punk rock makeover on a model.
