Lisa Armstrong bounces back with new TV project

She spoke about first dates and hot flushes

We were all shocked when makeup artist extraordinaire Lisa Armstrong was sacked from her longterm job on Britain’s Got Talent.

But now the estranged wife of Ant McPartlin has revealed a brand new – and very exciting – job. And it’s in front of the camera!

The star, who is usually behind-the-scenes on huge shows such as Strictly Come Dancing, shared a clip from the  as-yet unnamed makeover show, made by Jet TV.

Jet tweeted: “Another taster for our new show! @lisaAmakeup shows how to use eyelash curlers…and what not to talk about on a first date #hairynipples. More info on where you’ll be able to watch coming soon.”

The programme seems to give willing contestants makeovers before sending them out on blind dates.

In the preview, Lisa, 42, is doing a woman’s makeup and asks if she has ever used eyelash curlers. She says no and Lisa tells her: “I’m coming at you with a contraception and you’re going to be like, ‘Get away from me!’

“Do you trust me? Because I don’t trust myself, I am having a hot flush.”

The pair are then joined by a group, and they all chat about first dates, with Lisa – who split acrimoniously from Ant after 23 years together in January 2018 – scolds the woman for once telling a man she has hairy nipples.

Lisa tells her: “I don’t think that’s a good look, love.”

One more gushed: “Oh I love love love the look of this! Cannot wait to watch! Looks amazing x.”

It followed another video of the presenting team from Jet TV.

In December, they tweeted a clip of Lisa, and her co-hosts walking, along with the caption: “Feeling lonely, bored of Brexit and in need of a confidence boost and bit of sparkle in your life? Meet your new best friends – coming to give you a helping hand in 2019.”

They tagged in the makeup artist along with celebrity hairdresser, Richard Ward, stylist Erica Matthews, life coach, Kolarele Sonaike, photographer Abby Cohen, and performer Matt Charlton.

Jet TV included the hashtag #Update suggesting that could be the makeover show’s name.
