Ant McPartlin has reached a divorce settlement with Lisa Armstrong

The 44-year-old television presenter settled his bitter legal battle with Lisa in a face-to-face meeting in London on Tuesday (14.01.20), and it has now been claimed that the terms of their settlement will see Ant hand over £31 million to the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ make-up artist.

The amount is over half of Ant’s £50 million fortune, and is one of the biggest celebrity divorce settlements in British history.

The ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ host is said to be “delighted” to have reached a settlement with Lisa, 43, who will also get to keep the former couple’s £5 million former marital home in West London.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Ant and Lisa agreed to settle and sign their divorce agreement during a productive and civil meeting on Tuesday.

“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.

“For Lisa, the start of a new decade gave her a fresh mindset. It’s been tough but it’s time to move on.

“They both decided they wanted it resolved.

“There was no acrimony and both of them walk away contented.”

Ant and Lisa have agreed to share permanent custody of their beloved Labrador Hurley, and Lisa is not expected to be entitled to any of Ant’s future earnings as part of the deal.

Neither side is believed to have signed a confidentiality agreement.

The insider added: “No one expected it to be sorted so easily because it has been hurtling towards court.

“It will take a few weeks to tie up all the loose ends and a decree absolute will be issued in a few weeks.

“But it is a done deal. Ant has done the right thing and given her more than people often agree to give in order to properly move on.

“Neither of them could keep living with something so toxic hanging over them.”
