Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist Lisa Armstrong has revealed some rather upsetting career news.

The star, who was married to Ant McPartlin, has had a bit of a tough year following his wedding to new wife Anne-Marie.

And now she’d told fans of yet another blow, sharing the sad news with her Twitter followers.

Strictly news: What did Lisa Armstrong say?

Lisa told her social media followers that her make-up range for Avon has been discontinued.

Replying to a fan who was wondering if the range would be available in shops, Lisa tweeted: “No hun once it’s gone it’s gone unfortunately.”

Another fan asked: “Why am I being told that Avon are stopping stocking your range?” to which Lisa answered: “Because they are hun.”

When did Lisa launch her make-up range?

Her loyal followers rallied round to offer support, with some even suggesting she could move the collection to a different seller.

Lisa, 45, launched the range last September and paid tribute to her friends by naming her lipsticks after them.

Announcing the collection on Instagram, she wrote: “Zo, Fran, Em, Clarey, Bex, Jo, Bry, Cam, Joy, Catherine and Gem, enjoy.”

Former pop star Lisa has had a rocky few years following her high-profile divorce from Ant.

Back in September, she was told to “move on” by celeb agent Simon Jones, who represents Ant & Dec.

Simon had shared photos of the I’m A Celebrity hosts enjoying themselves at the National Television Awards.

He wrote: “20 years! So so proud of my amazing friends @antanddec for winning Best TV Presenter at the #NTAs @officialntas for the 20th year in a row!

“And proud to say I have been with them at the awards every year of those 20 wins.

“We’ve been on a brilliant journey so far and long may it continue.”

But while most people shared positive words, Lisa posted: “And you don’t care who you screw over in the process….well done.”

It’s not clear if her swipe was aimed at Simon Jones or her ex-husband, but she got a very swift response.

Simon hit back: “Lisa, please don’t come on to my Instagram with your negativity and false accusations.

“It really is about time you moved on and got on with your life, and stopped unfairly blaming other people for your mistakes.”

When did Ant and Lisa split?

Lisa and Ant were married in 2006 before announcing their separation in early 2018.

Ant is now married to their former PA Anne-Marie Corbett while Lisa is happily loved up with boyfriend James Green.
