Ant McPartlin set to divorce wife Lisa, amid claims she is “struggling to accept it is the end”

It’s reported that TV host Ant McPartlin wants to divorce his wife Lisa, as he admits that their marriage is over.

Ant, 42, and Lisa, 41 had been on the rocks with their marriage as Ant went to rehab for a painkiller addiction after a botched knee operation seen him in excruciating pain.

With Ant making his TV return back in November hosting I’m A Celebrity, sources close to the pair believed they could get through this bad patch.

However, The Sun now claims that Ant has admitted that his marriage is over and wants a divorce – but Lisa won’t accept that things are over.

A source close to McPartlin said: “Ant and Lisa are definitely over. He sees no way back for their marriage.

“Lisa has been struggling to accept it is the end. It is all very sad, especially with all she has gone through this year. She was clinging to the hope they could work things out.

Ant and Lisa were married in 2006

“Ant wants to announce it in an official statement in the new year and both try to move on. But Lisa has not agreed to this yet.

“No one else is involved and they are still on friendly terms. But they are both devastated.”

Meanwhile, a separate source told the newspaper that Lisa “is not in a good place” and has told several friends that her marriage is indeed over.
