Ant McPartlin's ex Lisa Armstrong debuts purple hair backstage at Strictly

The make-up artist, 41, revealed her bold new 'do with a fierce Twitter selfie, shared from the set of Strictly Come Dancing on Monday.

Lisa, who is chief make-up artist on the BBC show, added to her new look with hoop earrings and red lipstick, as she pouted backstage.

Snapping a quick selfie during her busy day on set, she joked in the caption: "When your hair matches the fire exit door!! #purple x"

Her 136,000 Twitter followers were sent wild by her colourful locks, and immediately praised her new-found sense of confidence.

One wrote: "That colour really suits you! You honestly are such an inspiration to so many people! Keep being the kind, genuine and strong lady that we all love x"

While others agreed: "You're looking that hot they had to put you by the fire exit!" and "Go knock em dead girl."

Lisa has experimented with a number of looks since her split from Ant, having braved both platinum blonde and hot pink locks in recent weeks.

The makeover comes after Lisa rescued a panicked bride-to-be, who was left in the lurch when her make-up artist cancelled last minute.

Bethany Turner begged the beauty expert for help on Twitter, who agreed to do the make-up for her entire wedding party – in an act the bride branded "kindness at its best".

The Sun revealed Lisa's 11-year-marriage to ITV presenter Ant, 42, had collapsed at the beginning of the year.

The couple are currently working through divorce proceedings, as well as a tense custody battle over their beloved chocolate Labrador, Hurley.

It has since been revealed that Ant has moved on with Anne-Marie Corbett, a friend and former PA to the couple during their marriage.
