Last Christmas?

Their fu­ture is still un­cer­tain

Heat (UK) - - This week were obsessed with -

While Ant Mc­partlin seems to be liv­ing his best life out in Oz, things aren’t ex­actly look­ing rosy for his re­turn home to wife Lisa.

The cou­ple have been strug­gling to keep their mar­riage afloat and, we’re told, things are still ex­tremely dif­fi­cult. But even with ev­ery­thing up in the air, the cou­ple are still plan­ning on spend­ing the fes­tive pe­riod to­gether. “She’s said they will see each other over Christmas,” an in­sider tells heat.

Be­fore Ant left to present I’m A Celeb, he had been liv­ing in a rented prop­erty around the cor­ner from the cou­ple’s home in west Lon­don. How­ever, Lisa wants them to spend Christmas to­gether – if not for their mar­riage, then for their friend­ship. “Lisa would rather stay friendly than be re­sent­ful. She doesn’t want to ruin what they had – this isn’t a blame game,” our source tells us. “Ant wants to spend this Christmas with Lisa; Christmas as her hus­band – even if this could be the last time.”

Ant and Lisa, both 41, say they don’t want to lose each other for­ever. Ac­cord­ing to our source, “They still speak al­most ev­ery day and the time apart has done them good. Friends and fam­ily hope that their mar­riage is sal­vage­able, but only time can tell. Nei­ther Ant nor Lisa want to men­tion divorce, as it breaks both their hearts to think about giv­ing up on the other one.”

The fu­ture, it seems, is still very much un­clear and, for the mo­ment, the trou­bled cou­ple are fo­cus­ing on the very short-term. As our source ex­plains, “The sad real­ity is that this could be their last Christmas to­gether.

“It’s a time for fam­ily and that is ul­ti­mately what they are to one an­other.” Katie Hol­loway
