Ant McPartlin has made a playful return to social media for the first time since divorcing ex-wife Lisa Armstrong.

The 42-year-old I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! host got into the spirit of Halloween this week, as he ignored the drama surrounding his divorce and decided to share a hilarious message with his and Declan Donnelly’s 6.77 million Twitter followers.

Sharing a spooktacular picture of him and Dec dressed as Batman and Robin, the comedian – who is now in a relationship with Anne-Marie Corbett – wrote: “Right Dec, time to go trick or treating again! Happy Halloweenfolks!  #TrickOrTreating #Halloween2018 A.”

In the pair’s divorce papers, Lisa blamed their split on “adultery” and went on to claim that she found Declan Donnelly’s co-star “intolerable to live with”. 

Court documents also read that the marriage had “broken down irretrievably” before the pair decided to part ways. 

Ant and Lisa announced in January that they were splitting after 23 years together.

At the time of their split, a representative for Ant said in a statement: “In response to the recent speculation in the media, Ant is very sad to announce that, after eleven years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin.

“Ant asks for privacy at this difficult time, for both himself, Lisa and their immediate families. No further statement will be made.”

The couple met at a roadshow in Newcastle in the mid-1990s, while Lisa was a singer in group Deuce.

They went to tie the knot in 2006 at St. Nicolas’ Church in Taplow, Buckinghamshire.
