Lisa Armstrong’s boyfriend’s estranged wife saw pictures of them together on her birthday
Four months after her divorce from Ant McPartlin was finalised, Lisa Armstrong has been spotted enjoying a walk with new beau James Green
The wife of Lisa Armstrong’s new boyfriend has broken her silence after pictures emerged of the pair enjoying a ‘loved-up’ stroll together.
It’s thought to be Lisa’s first relationship since her £31million divorce from Ant McPartlin was finalised in April.
Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist Lisa, 43, is said to have moved on with 37-year-old electrician James Green, who has two children with estranged wife Kirsty, 36.
Kirsty, who married James five years ago, has now spoken out to say she saw pictures of her ex with the Strictly Come Dancing beauty expert on her birthday.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said: “I saw the photos of James and Lisa yesterday – on my birthday, which wasn’t the best present ever.”
Despite her reaction to the timing, Kirsty said she wasn’t completely shocked to see the cosy pictures of her husband with Lisa.
“I’d kind of already had an idea they were an item, someone gave me the heads up,” she revealed.
Kirsty explained that she is still married to James, with whom she shares a 14-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son, though he moved out of their family home earlier this year.
“We were together for a long time and I still have a good relationship with him and still speak to him. He is the father of my two children after all,” she said.
“I’ve seen some of the comments people have made about James and Lisa online and I’ve found them quite upsetting to be honest.
“I think people have a negative view because Ant McPartlin is so popular, he’s seen almost as a national treasure,” said Kirsty.
Over the weekend pictures emerged of Lisa and James spending time at a park together where they were seen chatting and sharing a joke.
An onlooker described the pair as looking ‘really happy’.
“They were very lovey-dovey — as you are in the early stages of romance.
“They were chatting intently, holding hands, and she was laughing a lot. They made no effort to disguise their feelings.”
After the snaps emerged, a fan of Lisa’s messaged her on Twitter saying “Yes Lisa! He is fit! So chuffed for you, get in!!!” – which the beauty expert then retweeted to her own followers.
She also liked another fan message that called her a ‘f***ing Queen.’
In April this year, Lisa’s 11 year marriage to TV star Ant McPartlin was officially dissolved.
Following the announcement of their break-up in January 2018, Ant has gone on to find love with former PA Anne Marie Corbett.
In an interview this year, Ant called Anne Marie his ‘greatest love’.
When asked by Stylist magazine who his “greatest love” is, Ant responded: “My family, my partner, her girls, our dogs… and Newcastle United.”
In has also praised Anne Marie for helping him overcome issues in his
‘She’s a beautiful soul. We’re very happy. I’m in the best place I’ve been in my life, to be honest with you. It’s great,” he gushed.
