Ant McPartlin’s estranged wife Lisa Armstrong could make £155 million from their divorce, according to reports she has been advised to go after her presenter partner’s future earnings.
It was previously said that Ant, 42, was willing to pay Lisa, 41, half of his £62million fortune to end their marriage amicably.
Yet The Sun reports that The Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist is said to have been told to follow in the footsteps of Karen Parlour, the ex-wife of Arsenal star Ray Parlour, who was awarded a third of the footballer’s future earnings when they divorced in 2004.
An insider told The Sun On Sunday: ‘[Lisa] is not motivated by money [J4MB emphasis] and she has been focusing on getting through the devastating end of her marriage in one piece.
‘But she has a very strong legal team behind her. Their argument is Lisa has been pivotal to Ant achieving his fortune so she deserves to see some of his future earnings.’ [J4MB emphasis]
Remember, folks, Men shouldn’t marry.
