‘Hold your head high, karma will get them’

Lisa Armstrong is a woman on a mis­sion right now and it looks like she’s ready to come back fight­ing, af­ter her es­tranged hus­band Ant Mc­partlin was ro­man­ti­cally linked to his PA Anne-marie Cor­bett.

For weeks she’s kept a dig­ni­fied si­lence, un­til re­cently when she ap­peared to make a very ob­vi­ous state­ment and fi­nally took her ring off.

De­spite Ant, 42, an­nounc­ing their sep­a­ra­tion in Jan­uary and step­ping out with­out his wed­ding band, Lisa has con­tin­ued wear­ing hers, lead­ing fans to spec­u­late she was still hold­ing on to their al­most

12-year mar­riage.

How­ever, as she puffed on a cig­a­rette dur­ing a stroll in

LA last week, her en­gage­ment ring was no­tice­ably miss­ing.

The out­ing came as the make-up artist re­placed her Twit­ter cover photo of her with Ant and their dog Hur­ley, for one of her kiss­ing the pooch, and ap­peared to hit back at rumours around their di­vorce.

Af­ter it was re­ported she was plan­ning to ‘take Ant for all he’s worth’, she fu­ri­ously tweeted, ‘Lies, lies, lies.’

It’s clear by now that the 41-year-old has had enough of the run­ning com­men­tary sur­round­ing her sep­a­ra­tion.

And the news of Ant’s new re­la­tion­ship, which she says she knew noth­ing about un­til she saw it on the cover of a news­pa­per, has left her dev­as­tated.

Lisa has since liked a string of tweets on so­cial me­dia that ap­pear to sup­port her.

‘Don’t think I’ve seen a woman carry such heartache with such ex­treme dig­nity, class and strength. What a sh*t!!! Sis­ter, your time WILL come again,’ read one.

An­other tweet said,‘ap­palled at the way Ant has treated you af­ter 24 years to­gether, hold your head high, karma will get them.’

And, just days af­ter Ant’s new woman was re­vealed, she in­di­rectly ad­dressed the be­trayal she felt – lik­ing sup­port­ive tweets, in­clud­ing one that read, ‘Feel­ing for you. You have been treated abysmally!’

It’s no sur­prise Lisa needed some time out and flew to Los An­ge­les days af­ter news of Ant’s ro­mance emerged last month.

It’s thought her trip was twofold – in part a well-earned break away from the hell she will al­most cer­tainly have to face dur­ing the di­vorce, and, also a show of strength, with in­sid­ers claim­ing she was meet­ing with show­biz ex­ec­u­tives with the hope of find­ing lu­cra­tive deals to carve out a new life there.

And her new look didn’t go un­no­ticed, ei­ther.

Ditch­ing her pink hair for a sleek plat­inum bob, Lisa also showed off a trim­mer fig­ure as she was spot­ted out and about.

One fan com­mented on a pic, say­ing, ‘Wow! What a great pair of legs, you go girl!’

An­other said, ‘Lisa have a fan­tas­tic time in Amer­ica, you de­serve it.’ While a third added, ‘Hope your time in the USA gives you some peace and time to think about your fu­ture, hun. Re­mem­ber you have your ca­reer, too.’

So, with her ring fi­nally off, a whole new look and ru­moured plans for a fresh start across the pond, has Lisa turned her back on Ant once and for all?

Ei­ther way, there’s a rocky road ahead as the cou­ple’s split ap­pears in­cred­i­bly less am­i­ca­ble.
