Rumours surrounding Ant McPartlin and Scarlett Moffatt have been rife over the past few days. His soon to be ex-wife Lisa Armstrong has now ‘liked’ a post that claims her husband is ‘hiding someone’
Lisa who is a make up artist saw a cryptic tweet from a fan on Friday that said: “I think Ant is hiding something or someone, so sorry honey” and she favourited it.
This comes after Ant and Scarlett, the latter being best know for being on gogglebox, were seen looking close at the National Television Awards. This fuelled rumours of a budding relationship between the Geordie pair.
On Twitter on Friday an fan of Lisa sent a tweet saying: “after 2 years of coming off prescribed pain meds my hubby took the back lash, the moaning, the mood swings, the full crap but 18yrs of marriage, loyalty and LOVE& were still together, I think Ant is hiding something or someone so sorry hun”.
This tweet obviously hit home with Lisa, especially after Ant’s own personal struggles with prescription drugs – for which he entered rehab last year for treatment of the addiction.
Lisa who is a make-up artist for Strictly Come Dancing then went on to ‘like’ another post from a fan who praised her for being a loyal partner to Ant.
That particular fan wrote: ‘Hi Lisa, sending you love and sincere good wishes. We fell out when I criticised Ant. But I got to say I was probably right but you was loyal. Be strong darling. Me and my girls are wishing you well. Lisa’s got our 100% backing.xxxxxxxx’.
All this comes after she also favourited a tweet from one of her fans that read: “Your unconditional love and support made A who he is” Lisa then went on and re-posted a strong tweet that said: “Get up and get your s**t together”
That seems to suggest she thinks Ant will have regrets over the split. The tweet then continues to say: “Easy to think you don’t want UNTIL you don’t have.. Never Be Another You”.
The tweet was accompanied by a picture of another quote that read: “I’m not like other girls. That’s where you made your first mistake.”
This has all come about about fans went to Twitter to speculate on the relationship between Ant and Scarlett when the pair were sat together with Declan Donnelly at the National Television Awards.
On the night he won 3 awards but viewers of the show couldn’t help but suggest there was a blossoming romance between the popular 42 year old TV presenter and the woman made famous by Gogglebox.
Hopeful fans flocked to social media to share their hopes that Ant and Scarlett could become more than just friends. Some fans even wrote that they could be a ‘cute couple’
One fan wrote about the situation: ‘Don’t know why but I’m getting #scarlettmoffatt #antmcpartlin vibes @ScarlettMoffatt @antanddec both lovely people so why not…! Just saying is all…!’
Another one added: ‘Here’s a suggestion. Ant Mcpartlin and Scarlett Moffat should get together. What a beautiful couple.’ Another fan wrote: ‘Ant and Scarlett McPartlin. Let’s not rule it out. #NTAs’
It is rumored that this split between the couple could cost Ant millions of pounds. With some reports saying Lisa Armstrong could net up to £155 million. The figure is so high as legal experts have advised her to go for a cut of his future earnings.
Ant who is thought to be worth about £62 million due to his very successful 20-year career as one of TV’s most famous presenters and a host of endorsement deals was supposedly happy to split his earnings with Lisa.
Recent reports have suggested the the make-up artist is very interested in cutting a deal where she can get her hands on some of the stars future earnings. If that is indeed true she could be looking at getting up to £155 million.
Ant and Dec made an impressive landmark deal in 2007 with ITV which scooped them £40 million for solely presenting on their channel. This hug deal was recently renewed for another bumper figure of £30 million.
Aside from those 2 huge deals they have got for themselves the famous presenters picked up £2.5 million each for presenting I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and they own numerous properties.
The reason legal representatives have advised Lisa to go for some of his future earnings is because the couple were together for a long time and they argue she contributed to his huge TV success.
In a similar case where Arsenal football player Ray Parlour got divorced, his now ex-wife Karen Parlour managed to secure more than a third of his future income after standing by him throughout his career.
Although originally dismissed. She then won the deal after she appealed due to 3 judges ruling that, in principle, the post-divorce income of a high-earning spouse should be split 50-50 in the same way as other matrimonial assets to reflect the vital input of the other partner to the marriage.
This case broke records at the time as Karen was then awarded a third of Ray’s future earnings by the courts.
The deal turned out to be worth more than a staggering £400,000 a year. A figure which has since dropped since he retired from the game some years ago.
The story with Lisa and Ant has it’s similarities as they have been together for 23 years in total. This leaves her team open to argument that she deserves some of his future earnings on top of whatever she is entitled to through the natural split of marital assets.
Lisa however hasn’t decided on her next move as she is apparently not motivated by money.
“She has been focusing on getting through the devastating end of her marriage in one piece,” a source said.
“But she has a very strong legal team behind her. Their argument is Lisa has been pivotal to Ant achieving his fortune so she deserves to see some of his future earnings.”
Lisa, who’s Twitter account is public has recently like a tweet that says: “Hope you’re ok lisaAmakeup. I’ve gone through 2 divorces and the grass isn’t greener like they believe,”
For now..people will continue to speculate and wonder what will be next for Ant and Lisa..
Is it just me or does Scarlett Moffat look like a young Lisa Armstrong? Seems friendly with Ant. Watch this space!
