Ant McPartlin Confirms Heartbreaking News About His Marriage To Lisa

Ant McPartlin has confirmed that he and his wife are to divorce after 11 years of marriage.

Split rumours surrouding the pair reached fever pitch when Lisa moved out of their £6 million mansion previous year but it looked as though they were set to work things out when she defended her marriage on Twitter.

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

"No further statement will be made".

A source close to Ant added to The Sun: "This was a tough decision for Ant but he has to do the right thing for his health".

It was previously reported that Ant planned to make an official statement about his marriage in the new year, and now his rep has confirmed speculation in a statement. "It hasn't happened overnight".

The 42-year-old I'm A Celebrity presenter has overhauled his life since going into rehab last June, where he underwent treatment for an addiction to prescription drugs and alcohol.

Ant moved into a £1.6 million rented property just streets away from their mansion in West London instead of back into the family home following rehab.

'The marriage has effectively been struggling for eight months.

It's all over for Ant and Lisa.

Prior to Ant travelling to the Aussie jungle for I'm A Celeb two months ago, a source told The Sun: "Ant is spending time apart from Lisa - he's said he needs space and everyone respects that".

McPartlin has spoken publicly about his time in rehab, with his problems having reportedly been triggered by failed knee surgery. They're best friends. She's always stood by him and been supportive.

Lisa replied: "Educate yourself first love and get your facts right".

Lisa appeared to hint that things had taken a turn for the worst when she posted a picture which labelled 2017 as a rubbish year.

Despite rumours of a rift between the couple, Lisa responded to questions about the status of the couples marriage by tweeting that she hadn't been out to Australia with Ant for 10 years.
