Ant McPartlin and Lisa Armstrong are said to have had a furious stand-off after she refused him entry to their marital home.
The TV presenter, 43, is understood to have recently arrived at the west London property the couple formerly shared to collect some of his remaining possessions after arranging the visit through lawyers.
The Saturday Night Takeaway was left surprised when the make-up artist, 42, refused to let him in after he buzzed the intercom, leading to a tense exchange between the exes.

An insider told the Daily Mirror Lisa was unaware that it was Ant himself who would be arriving to take the items from the house.
The source said: ‘Ant has a right to collect his possessions he left in the house two years ago.
‘The last time he was in the house was July, two years ago – before he went into rehab the first time. He just wants to collect his belongings at the agreed time.
‘It’s all pretty tiring now – he just wants to move on with his life. It’s obviously a very sensitive situation so Ant knows he has to do everything by the book.’

The source added it was ‘disappointing’ that Lisa did not let him in as the visit had been pre-arranged.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Ant for further comment.
Ant released a statement in January last year that the couple, who were married for 12 years, were to split.
The I’m a Celeb host and his teenage sweetheart had been together for 23 years and married in 2006 but announced the end of their marriage in January.
They were granted a divorce during a 30-second hearing at the Central Family Court in October.
They first met in Newcastle in 1994 before exchanging vows at a stunning country house in Buckinghamshire, in 2006.
Court documents revealed that McPartlin had ‘committed adultery’ and that his former wife found it ‘intolerable to live with’ the TV star.
Lisa did not comment, but liked Twitter comments from friends telling her ‘good things come to kind people’ and ‘pull on your big girls pants, it’s your turn to start afresh’.
Under divorce laws, Ant technically had to admit adultery because he was still married when the relationship began.
The former couple had to provide a good reason to the court why the marriage ended and lawyers offered adultery.

Sources close to the couple have said they just wanted to end it ‘as quickly and painlessly as possible’.
Following their split, it was revealed that Ant was dating former PA and mother-of-two Anne-Marie Corbett, 42.
Lisa has since revealed she didn’t know personal assistant Anne-Marie and her ex-husband were dating until she saw pictures of them together in a newspaper.
She subsequently liked a tweet referencing her former friend and employee’s romance with Ant. The post read: ‘Me and hub are so supportive of you. Giving yr trust to a PA who has ripped your life apart: karma sweetie XX.’
In June, Lisa took to Twitter to criticise her ex-husband’s new girlfriend of ‘breaking girl code’ by dating the troubled star.

Lisa revealed to her 122,000 followers that she invited Anne-Marie into their marital home and the woman had been both hers and Ant’s personal assistant.
Speaking at the time about his new relationship Ant told The Sun: ‘Anne-Marie honestly is the fundamental reason for the great change in my life.
‘She’s been my rock. She’s a beautiful soul. We’re very happy.’
Ant revealed he in the same interview that he has ADHD and when asked about Anne-Marie breaking the girl code, he defended her for ‘breaking the girl code.’
He said: ‘That’s absolute rubbish. I don’t feel the need to defend Anne-Marie but I will say you’ve got to be careful judging other people’s relationships or what you think is the truth that’s been put out there.’
In 2017, McPartlin entered rehab after struggling with a two-year addiction to super-strength painkillers following a knee operation in 2015.
In April, 2018, he was banned from the road for 20 months and fined £86,000 for driving while more than twice the legal limit.
