Ant McPartlin's new girlfriend 'is his protector' but ex Lisa Armstrong was his 'sidekick' says body language expert

In contrast, Judi went on to suggest that Ant's ex-wife, Lisa Armstrong, was his "sidekick" – similar to Ant's on-screen co-star, Declan Donnelly.

The comments have come just days after Ant and Lisa officially divorced after 12 years of marriage.

Speaking to the Mirror Online, body language pro Judi explained: "To judge from the body language signals between Ant and his ex Lisa and with his current partner Anne-Marie, it appears he really has opted for a very different type of relationship with a rather different woman.

"Intriguingly Lisa's poses almost put her in a 'Dec'-style role with Ant, completing the look of a comedy duo and posing up with him either fooling around or in more upright poses with her back against his torso in much the same way that Dec would pose up with his professional partner Ant.

"This complimentary posing suggests a couple who spark off one another to create the fun and the laughs and their status rituals do suggest a pretty even match, just like a TV double act.

"Anne-Marie usually adopts a much more back seat role though, either walking behind Ant or keeping a lower profile for the cameras."

She added that Ant and Anne-Marie's romance seems "more adult-looking", with the star's former PA his "supporter and possible protector".

The Sun on Sunday revealed in June that Ant had started dating mum-of-two Anne-Marie, his and Lisa's former personal assistant.

That month Lisa tweeted a broken heart emoji and said of Anne-Marie: "Yeah My Friend and OUR PA who I let into OUR home."

Last week, Ant ordered Lisa to stop attacking Anne-Marie on social media.

The Sun exclusively revealed how the make up artist was issued with a legal warning after Ant’s new love became distressed after Lisa liked other people's tweets that branded her a “gold digger”, “backstabber” and “second best”.

An insider said: "It’s getting increasingly bitter. After everything Lisa has been through she feels so angry and hurt."

Ant and Lisa split in January, with the pair getting married in 2006 after 11 years together.

It is thought that their relationship hit the rocks over their apparent struggle to start a family together, and Ant's stints in rehab for painkiller and booze addictions.
