Ant McPartlin looks happy as he giggles while eating gelato with Anne-Marie Corbett on getaway 

Ant McPartlin was seen putting on a loved-up display during an ice-cream date with his new girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett during their romantic trip to Italy on Tuesday.

The 42-year-old TV star looked happy and healthy as he emerged with his partner just hours before news surfaced that his good friend Holly Willoughby would be taking over his hosting duties on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here alongside his partner Declan Donnelly, after he bowed out to focus on his recovery.

His romance with his former PA has been going from strength to strength, much to the chagrin of his ex-wife Lisa Armstrong, who voiced her dismay at the couple’s PDA so soon after their split, which was announced in January.

Ant and Anne-Marie have been spotted on a number of romantic trips during their holiday and latest has been their trip to the ice cream parlour.  The blonde beauty looked stunning for the trip as she sported a pretty white summer dress with a light black jacket layered over the top. 

She wore her hair in loose lengths falling from a side parting while her make-up was dewy and natural. While Ant is focusing on his relapse in his addiction recovery and enjoying the relaxed trip with his new partner, his estranged wife Lisa has taken to social media to ‘like’ tweets about him being ‘pathetic’ and ‘despicable’.

Lisa was left feeling heartbroken after photos of her estranged husband Ant emerged with his new girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett in Florence over the weekend.

Ant was snapped looking cosy with his and Lisa’s former PA during a holiday to Italy, in which a passersby told The Sun: ‘Ant kept cuddling Anne-Marie, he looked amazing and happier than ever.’

After the big reveal, a fan sent Lisa a message about how heartbreaking the situation must be, Lisa responded with a simple crying face Emoji.

She went on to favourite several tweets, which called Ant ‘insensitive’ and ‘disrespectful’ – continuing to do so on Sunday as more replies branded him ‘despicable’ and ‘shameful’.

One tweeter penned: ‘Seeing those pictures can only make you stronger hold your head high the nation can now see for their own eyes how certain humans are beyond despicable & you were right all along #shameonthem.’ 

Another wrote: ‘Hardest pill I had to swallow was learning that no matter how good you could be to someone, no matter how much you care & love them, that they can & WILL turn their back on you & there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it but say f**k it and keep moving forward!’

Lisa also replied to a photo from her best friend and former Deuce star, Craig Robert Young, who shared a quote which said ‘those people who tried to bury you didn’t know you were a seed,’ to which she replied with three red hearts. 

The Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist re-tweeted a message from a fan, which read: ‘It’s tough I’ve been there to and sooo disrespectful after so many years.

‘It might not seem it but the best thing is to hold ur head up high and be as successful as you can not just career wise – men are weak and always need someone !! Women don’t xxx.’

Lisa and Ant announced their split in January before details of his new romance came out earlier this year – much to Lisa’s open heartache.

Following the images, a fan messaged the star saying: ‘Seeing those pictures of Ant hugging his girlfriend and looking smitten must be so painful for Lisa… Really feel for her,it’s not nice to see your ex with someone else, but to see it all over social media… must be twice as hard.’ 

She then responded to the message with the crying face which appeared to reflect her heartache on the scenario and her agreement over the message.

Of the romantic holiday snaps of Ant and Anne-Marie, the source told The Sun: ‘They seemed even more in love and were just being classic tourists, shopping in the market and taking pictures of the buildings. 

‘Ant kept his arm around Anne-Marie constantly. He seemed really protective of her. It’s great to see him looking so well again.’
