Ant McPartlin ‘sorting financial arrangements and details’ of divorce from Lisa Armstrong

Ant McPartlin is the process of sorting the financial arrangements and final details surrounding his divorce from estranged wife Lisa Armstrong.

Divorce proceedings to end their 12-year marriage began at a 30-second hearing in October after McPartlin, 43, admitted adultery with Anne-Marie, his former personal assistant.

Court documents revealed that he had 'committed adultery' and that his estranged wife found it 'intolerable to live with' the troubled star.

Under divorce laws, McPartlin technically had to admit adultery because he was still married when the relationship began. Professional make-up artist Lisa is expected to receive a generous settlement from the presenter - worth an estimated £62million. A divorce can be a very stressful time, but we are here to help.
