The make-up artist looked in good spirits while out and about in London as she gears up to spend time away from Ant
Ant McPartlin’s wife Lisa Armstrong was spotted wearing her wedding ring and smiling broadly as her husband arrived in Australia for I’m A Celebrity.
The Strictly Come Dancing head make-up artist is gearing up for a number of weeks away from her husband, after living separate lives prior to his trip.
And while Lisa was seen looking happy as she threw herself into work back in the UK, Ant also looked relaxed and well as he landed in Australia alongside his co-star Declan Donnelly.
Ant, who has recently completed a stint in rehab to deal with an addiction to painkillers, posed for pictures with fans – who were delighted he is now well enough to do the show.
His trip comes after The Sun revealed that the 41-year-old had told pals he “needed space” and have moved down the road from his martial home.
A friend said at the time: “Ant is spending time apart from Lisa — he’s said he needs space and everyone respects that.
“They are effectively leading separate lives while he re-evaluates everything.”
Ant had previously admitted putting Lisa, 41, through hell with his mood swings and depression while hooked on the pills.
But despite now being better, Ant is planning on spending his time in Oz evaluating the future of his 23-year relationship with Lisa.
The pal said: “He’s incredibly excited to receive the all-clear to host I’m A Celebrity with Dec.
“That’s what he’s been working towards.
“He’s going to be there for a number of weeks while Lisa is busy working behind the scenes on Strictly.
“It’s going to be a make or break few weeks as they decide how they feel about each other.
“But the sad reality is that it’s not looking positive that the marriage will survive long-term.”
