Lisa Armstrong 'hits back' at Ant McPartlin's 'dig' at her in interview

They split last year

Lisa Armstrong has appeared to hit back at ex Ant McPartlin after he semingly criticised her for using social media to communicate her feelings on their split.

During an interview with The Sun at the weekend, Ant praised his new girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett for helping him recover from a drink-driving arrest and stint in rehab.

In the chat, he also appeared to make a dig at Lisa for her Twitter presence.

But fans of her have taken to social media to offer their support to Lisa, and the make-up artist reacted by 'liking' the string of tweets criticising her ex.

One tweet read: "Ok so Ant's back, but don’t come back rubbing @LisaArmstrong face in it how his new girlfriend is his saviour. Don’t you think you have hurt Lisa enough? Have some respect Ant."

Another person said: "Absolutely disgusted at Ant’s behaviour. My heart goes out to @lisaAmakeup the poor girl must be devastated #dignity #keepsmiling."

A third tweeted: "Let's get this right @lisaAmakeup is not allowed to like a few supportive tweets but Ant (@antanddec ) gets the poor me interview in the papers! Head up lisa you are well and truly better off without him!"

Anne-Marie honestly is the fundamental reason for the great change in my life.

In an interview published over the weekend, Ant - who entered rehab last year after pleading guilty to a drink-driving conviction following a car crash - claimed Anne-Marie had been his "rock" throughout his recovery process.

He said: "Anne-Marie honestly is the fundamental reason for the great change in my life. She’s been my rock. She’s a beautiful soul. We’re very happy. I’m in the best place I’ve been in my life, to be honest with you. It’s great."

Ant also said he no longer speaks to Lisa, but noted they still share their dog Hurley "quite evenly", despite Lisa reportedly giving up custody of the pooch in order to move on from Ant.

He added: "I’ve not been on social media or put any of my personal views out there. It’s not my style. She can live her life how she wants to live her life and say what she wants but I prefer to keep that private."
