In another snap posted on Ant and Dec’s official Twitter account, Ant also looks to be in high spirits with his telly partner outside Madam Tussauds.
This comes after 42-year-old Ant released a statement over the weekend revealed that his marriage is over.
A rep for the star confirmed: ‘In response to the recent speculation in the media, Ant is very sad to announce that, after 11 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’s split comes after telly favourite Ant checked into rehab last summer, with the star confessing to problems with alcohol, substance abuse and prescription drugs.
And his health was reportedly a factor in Ant’s decision to divorce Lisa, whom he has been with for 23 years and married in 2006, with a source telling The Sun: ‘This was a tough decision for Ant but he has to do the right thing for his health.’
