Lisa Armstrong’s friend slams Ant McPartlin in online rant

He's not shy of sharing his opinions...

No-one likes to see a friend heartbroken, and Lisa Armstrong’s good friend Craig Robert Young is no exception.

The singer/actor took to Twitter on Monday evening to attack Lisa’s estranged husband Ant McPartlin, calling his actions “appalling”.

Linking to an article headline: “Ant McPartlin’s not a victim”, Craig wrote: “I couldn’t agree more. ⁦⁩He may have issues, but ultimately he is responsible for his appalling behaviour.

“I do believe drugs and alcohol addiction is an illness but it’s not an excuse for such utter disregard for good humans. (Cont’d).”

The star, who was in the band Deuce with Lisa back in the nineties, added: “Go back to rehab, lose the enablers, the cheaters and [bleep]lickers. Take responsibility for your actions. Once you have done the work…. (cont’d)

“In a few years you might come to realize the pain you have caused and the irreparable wounds that can’t heal, and you will no doubt be full of remorse. But something tells me it might be too late. #sorrynotsorry”.

Lisa’s fans supported the rant, replying: “Well said. A sign of true friendship. Xxx”.

Another added: “👏🏻 i totally adore your loyalty to Lisa and love your friendship 😘”.

The furious rant comes after months of tense headlines between Ant and Lisa, 41, who were married for 11 years and together 23, before splitting in January.

Ant, 42, has since started dating Lisa’s friend Anne-Marie Corbett.

The Strictly makeup artist reacted on Twitter with a series of heartbroken emojis when the news broke.

But in the last few weeks, Lisa has apparently made an effort to move on, spending time in LA and getting a glamorous makeover.

She also visited a tattoo parlour last week to get an inking on her left wrist.
