‘Lisa is nowhere near be­ing over Ant – she’s still cut up’

sit­u­a­tion, she has had to share her pain with the world. Lisa feels that ev­ery time she makes a bit of progress, Ant does some­thing to knock her back. Her friends are pre­par­ing them­selves for bad news.”

Ant an­nounced the end of his mar­riage to Lisa back in Jan­uary, fol­low­ing his first spell in re­hab for al­co­hol and drug ad­dic­tion in sum­mer 2017. The pair had been to­gether for over 23 years and Lisa was left dev­as­tated as she had wanted to save the mar­riage. In March 2018, Ant en­tered re­hab again af­ter he was ar­rested for drink driv­ing. Then, in June, he con­firmed his re­la­tion­ship with Anne-marie.

When they were to­gether Ant and Lisa had made no se­cret of the fact they wanted chil­dren and, as heat has re­ported, she is ter­ri­fied that Ant and Anne-marie will have a baby to­gether. “It’s one of her worst fears, as it’s some­thing she al­ways wanted,” our source ex­plains. “She would never be­grudge any­one’s hap­pi­ness, but it would be some­thing that would take her a long time to get over.”

She wouldn’t mind a hot man to flirt with, ei­ther. Be­cause she’s been so hurt, she’s put up a lot of bar­ri­ers and friends have wor­ried that this may stop her from mov­ing on. She knows she has to let her guard down, and with such a great sup­port net­work of fam­ily and friends, she feels she can do that, but be­cause she was with Ant for over half her life, she didn’t re­ally know what be­ing sin­gle was like. Get­ting her­self out there is some­thing she has to work at. But she knows she’ll be able to

own em­pire,” an in­sider tells heat. “The aim is to have ev­ery­thing she does to feed into mak­ing her money – and not a huge com­pany. Ch­eryl sees this as the op­por­tu­nity to give women what they re­ally want. She’s had a lot of of­fers over the last few years, with sim­i­lar brands as Easilocks ap­proach­ing her to front a cam­paign. But her team have been re­ally smart – they have ne­go­ti­ated an eq­uity deal – the word­ing is very much that Ch­eryl is re­leas­ing her ‘own range’ of hair ex­ten­sions with them, so she shares in all the prof­its from this.”
