Lisa Armstrong has confirmed that Ant McPartlin’s new love had been a friend of hers, adding insult to injury.

The news broke early this morning that her ex-husband, who she had been with for eleven years, had moved on five months after they separated. His new love is Anne-Marie Corbett, a 42-year-old mother-of-two who is the TV presenter’s personal assistant.

The makeup artist has spent the day replying to people wishing her well on Twitter as she comes to terms with the news.

However, Lisa revealed that the new romance is even more painful than people initially assumed as it turns out Anne-Marie was a friend of Lisa’s.

Nicola McLean tweeted her to say, “Sending my love Lisa!! Really feel for you worst pain ever x”

“Thanks babe and to think she was MY friend!! xx ????????❤” she replied, revealing the deeper level of hurt and betrayal she was experiencing.

Another follower of Lisa’s wrote, “If it’s true I would have hoped out of respect to you that he didn’t let you find out from the media…you deserve better than that! Let the tears flow, talk about how much it hurts & let your family & friends support you. It won’t feel like it now but you will get through this x”

To which she replied, “Nope. Just how you guys did x ????”
