Ant McPartlin and Lisa Armstrong's 'battle for beloved dog over Christmas'

They both want time with Hurley

Exes Ant McPartlin and Lisa Armstrong are apparently locked in a battle over who will have their beloved dog Hurley over Christmas!

The pair, who were together for 23 years before they broke-up in January, don't want to be without the chocolate Labrador during the holidays.

A source told The Sun: "You would think they could move on with their lives now, but they're still clashing.

"They're on course to ruin one another's Christmas, as they've been rowing over who gets to spend it with Hurley - there's even talk that the pup will have to go between the two of them during the day."

The gossiper added of Ant's new partner Anne-Marie Corbett: "Ant's girlfriend must have hoped the drama over Hurley was at an end, but Lisa is making herself part of the day, whether they like it or not."

Ant, 43, and Lisa, 42, got Hurley five years ago and he has been a big part of the family ever since. But now they are separated, spending equal time with their pooch has become difficult.

The pup has been spending alternate weeks with them, apparently being chauffeured between their London homes by one of Ant's assistants - so they don't have to meet up.

They are currently still amid their divorce after 11 years of marriage.

But Hurley is not the only sore point between them.

Lisa has made her upset known after she was axed as a make-up artist on Britain's Got Talent, which Ant is set to return to host next year.

She has been retweeting supportive messages from fans.

Lisa also still has the sweet snap of her, Ant and Hurley on her Instagram.
