Lisa Armstrong ‘wants to prove she’s not Ant’s bitter ex’ as she finds love

Ant McPartlin's ex-wife Lisa Armstrong has proved she has moved on after she went public with her new man James Green with some loved-up snaps on Valentine's Day.

Lisa, 44, looked happier than ever as she posed with James in a bar as she shared a sweet tribute on her Instagram page.

Friends close to the make-up artist have said that Lisa is feeling "confident and secure" in her relationship and wants everyone to see how happy she is.

A source told OK! Online: "Lisa feels so comfortable. She wants to show everyone she’s not the bitter ex of Ant. She’s proving that she has her own identity and her own life.

"She feels like she’s still always connected to Ant, so she wanted to show the world her new love."

They added: "She’s feeling more confident and more secure. She wants the world to know she’s loved and she’s happy to show it. She was in two minds whether to put it out there, but her friends are really pleased she did.

"She wanted to do it her way and on her own terms. They’re so happy. He’s really nice and normal and there’s no hidden agenda or issues. It’s an easy relationship and she feels really secure."

In one of the snaps, Lisa and James look completely loved-up as they cuddled up to each other and beamed at the camera with a bar in the background.

The second showed James planting a kiss of Lisa's cheek as she smiled contently while they stood in a kitchen for a cosy night in.

Lisa was first spotted with James at a park cafe last year, and the pair looked very happy as they laughed and joked with each other while walking with Hurley, the dog she shares with her ex Ant.

It has been reported that Lisa first met James before lockdown started last year, and their romance seems to be going from strength to strength.

Lisa and Ant have both moved on since ending their 12-year marriage in January 2018, with Ant announcing the news following a stint in rehab.

Ant is now engaged to personal assistant Anne-Marie Corbett after popping the question on Christmas Eve in a cosy proposal.

This came after Ant admitted on I'm A Celebrity to Jordan North that his "happy place" was being Anne-Marie and her children.
