Inside Lisa Armstrong’s ‘wonderful’ first birthday without Ant McPartlin

Lisa Armstrong spent a very different birthday to the previous 11 years yesterday – but partied on, regardless.

While this time last year she was still married to Ant McPartlin – and his new lover Anne-Marie Corbett was still just his PA and her friend – 2018’s celebrations were a far more female-focused bash as her pals rallied around her to spoil her for the day.

The make-up artist spent the day with her friend Tara Hickman and Lisa, 42, looked gorgeous in a simple black dress and heels, with her blonde hair slicked back.

Tara posted the sweet pic of the gang and said: “Such a wonderful party for @lisaamkup birthday. Great tunes, mad dancing and lots of laughs. #friendship #love #herestoabetteryear”

And it appears she was supported by her Strictly friends on the night, as one of the show’s dancers, Giovanni Pernice, gave her a shout out on Twitter: “ Happy bday to this beauty !!! @lisaAmakeup have the best day !!! Love ya” to which she replied: “Thanks babe, see you later.”

Meanwhile, after the Lisa and Ant were granted a decree nisi last week, on the same day her divorce from the TV star went through, a defiant Lisa appeared on Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two.

Showing no sign of what was going on in her personal life, Lisa delivered a make-up masterclass on the show.

Body language expert judi James told the Mirror Online of her appearance: "Lisa does look resilient and almost oblivious to all the recent on-going dramas here, presenting direct to camera with a wide smile before applying the make up with a steady hand that suggests no sign of nerves."

Since her divorce from TV star Ant was finalised last week, Lisa’s friends have been rallying around her and sharing messages of support on social media site Twitter .

After Lisa initially took a step back from the micro-blogging platform, she returned days later to approve a message that suggested she had ‘been through hell’.

A friend of Lisa tagged her in on a poem that was a strong message about women coming through a break-up.
