ANT McPartlin's ex Lisa Armstrong is all loved up after a lockdown romance.
Here's everything you need to know about her new man James Green and how long their relationship has been blossoming.
Who is James Green?
Not a lot is known about Lisa's new man James Green, who appears far removed from the world of showbiz.
By most accounts he is just an ordinary guy, who crucially appears to get on with the other male in Lisa life – her beloved pet dog Hurley.
He is 38 – six years younger than Lisa – and a fellow divorcee and works as an electrician.
Since the lovebirds have gone public they've kept their relationship out of the limelight.
Lisa met divorced James before the first national lockdown in 2020, and despite Covid-19 restrictions, their relationship continued to blossom.
Lisa was previously married to presenter Ant from 2006 until they announced their plans to divorce in 2018.
Ant has now re-married. He wed Anne-Marie Corbett in a star studded ceremony in Heckfield, Hants.
Guests included Ant’s I’m a Celebrity stand-in Holly Willoughby, 40, and her This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield, 59.
Saturday Night Takeaway pal Stephen Mulhern, 44, is also among the 100 invited friends and family.
However there was no sign of Lisa or James at the ceremony.
Instead they holed up in the five star Pale Hall Hotel on the edge of Snowdonia in Wales.
How long have Lisa and James been dating?
The pair are known to have met before lockdown – and the romance flourished despite all the coronavirus restrictions.
They grew closer throughout the months and, judging by the park pics, are still very much in the honeymoon phase of their relationship.
Make-up artist Lisa and James were spotted being very touchy-feely as they sat together, laughing and hugging at a park bench.
One onlooker said: "She and James both looked really happy, especially Lisa.
"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."
What happened between Lisa and Ant?
The popular couple were wedded for well over a decade before they announced they were ending their marriage in 2018.
The break-up came shortly after I’m A Celebrity host Ant needed rehab for drink and prescription drug addiction in 2017.
Lisa was granted a decree nisi in October, with the marriage officially ended by April’s decree absolute.
They had got hitched in 2006 in a glamorous £150,000 bash in Cliveden, Bucks.
This followed Ant's romantic proposal on a Dubai holiday in 2005.
Ant is now dating his former PA, Anne-Marie Corbett, who he now lives with.
