Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist Lisa took to her Twitter to reveal her sadness, with a series of heartbroken emojis.
Lisa also liked a number of messages from her 116 thousand Twitter followers who sent her kind and comforting words following the news of Ant’s reported new relationship.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! presenter Ant, 42, is said to have grown close to his PA, Anne-Marie Corbett in recent months and only after he separated from Lisa.
Anne-Marie, also 42, is a separated mother-of-two who reportedly split with her husband last October, although this has not been confirmed.
