Ant McPartlin’s wife Lisa Armstrong flashes her wedding ring on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two. Lisa’s ring could clearly be seen when she was applying cleansing water to a male dancer called Ed. Earlier this week, Lisa hit out at reports she and 41-year-old Ant – who she has been married to for 11 years – are “estranged”, insisting she isn’t going to Australia when he is co-hosting I’m A Celebrity because she has work commitments.
Show bosses are said to have been forced to come up with a contingency plan after the inclement weather was forecast for the upcoming week in Queensland. A host of celebrities, including former Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas, The Saturdays singer Vanessa White and Coronation Street actress Jennie McAlpine, are due to enter camp on Sunday when the new series kicks off – but the launch may be a damp squib. The famous I’m A Celeb shower scenes have become a hotly-anticipated part of the show as the stars strip down to their swimming trunks and bikinis under a natural waterfall – and bosses are said to be hoping they won’t be affected by the weather.
The 41-year-old TV presenter has reportedly been staying in a rented home streets away from Lisa Armstrong – who he married 11 years ago – and the pair are said to be “effectively leading separate lives”. A friend told The Sun: “Ant is spending time apart from Lisa — he’s said he needs space and everyone respects that.
The family of I’m A Celebrity star David Gest have started legal action after being left with nothing in his will following his death in April. The American music producer left behind an estimated fortune of almost £10million – and he left pretty much ALL of it to his attorney Edward Bearman. Bearman was also handed the star’s five bedroom home in the US, which later sold for £450,000, as well as money, clothes that belonged to the star’s friend Michael Jackson and a secret pop memorabilia collection said to be worth somewhere in the region of £1.6million. Gest’s sister Barbara Gerber is suing the will’s executors, who just happen to work at the same US law firm as the star’s attorney.
