Showdown talks

They were granted a divorce in a hearing which took 30 seconds last October.

But the finer details of their split are still apparently ongoing, with Britain's Got Talent host Ant McPartlin reportedly meeting ex-wife Lisa Armstrong for showdown talks today (September 6).

It will be the first time they come face to face this year.
