Lisa Armstrong has rubbished claims that Ant McPartlin will hand over £31m as part of their divorce settlement.

Reports claimed that the Britain's Got Talent star will have to hand over more than half of his £50m fortune.

The pair married in 2006 and split in early 2018. It's claimed they thrashed out the deal in a "face-to-face meeting" on Tuesday (January 14).

As part of the reported deal, Lisa isn't expected to be able to make a claim on any of Ant's future earnings.

Neither side are understood to have signed a confidentiality agreement barring them from talking about the specifics of the deal.

The source said: "Ant and Lisa agreed to settle and sign their divorce agreement during a productive and civil meeting on Tuesday."

She also responded to a newspaper headline stating that she had denied reports she is due to be paid £31m from Ant.

"I deny it because it's not true," she said.
