She disappeared off at the weekend for a UK staycation with her new man James Green.

And Lisa Armstrong is continuing to enjoy her time away ahead of her ex-husband Ant McPartlin’s wedding this weekend to Anne-Marie Corbett.

The Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist, 44, and her electrician beau posted snaps to Instagram enjoying their time away, shrugging off the looming nuptials of Lisa’s TV star ex.

She captioned a snap of them, ‘#Staycation,’ looking perfectly content.

She has been staying in an unknown location at a Four Seasons hotel with James. 

A source even told OK Magazine recently that Lisa is up for getting remarried herself some day. 

This comes as Ant, along with longtime co-host Declan Donnelly, told their social media followers that they’ll be ‘taking a bit of a break’ for ‘a couple of weeks’.

The 45-year-old presenters shared the news on their joint Instagram account on Sunday, just days after a source revealed to The Mail on Sunday that Ant’s wedding celebrations will take place across August 6 and 7.

Posing in Hawaiian shirts, rolled up trousers and straw hats against a green screen, the presenting duo encouraged their 4.3million followers to tag them in their holiday snaps over the coming weeks.

They wrote in full: ‘Taking a bit of a break for a couple of weeks, but we’ll see you very soon!

‘Hope you manage to get away this summer and if you do, take us along with you?!

‘Add us to your holiday snaps, tag us and use #holidaywithantanddec and we’ll share our favourites!’

Ant and personal assistant Anne-Marie, 43, are expected to tie the knot in August.

A source told Mail on Sunday last month that a grand stately home-turned-hotel in Hampshire will host a star-studded reception for Ant and his fiancée on August 6 and 7.

Ant is paying for 100 friends to stay at £1,000 per night and has told them to send the spa bill to his £5,000 per night honeymoon suite.

Ant’s engagement to Anne-Marie was announced on New Year’s Eve after the presenter popped the question in a romantic Christmas Eve proposal.

It’s believed Ant designed Anne-Marie’s engagement ring himself – paying up to £200,000 for the rock.

In May, Ant enjoyed a booze-free stag do organised by Dec in Berkshire.

The famous pair enjoyed a six-hour round of golf with friends, before heading to an exclusive clubhouse and tucking into a four-course lunch prepared by the head chef.

‘Ant was having the time of his life, he and Dec were laughing and joking all the way around,’ an insider told The Daily Mirror.

‘You could tell there was friendly competition between them, but they were still whooping each other on when one of them played a specially good shot.

‘Ant had a really good time. It was the perfect day for golf.’

Dec reportedly toasted his close friend’s happiness and booze was strictly off the menu after Ant quit alcohol in 2018 following his arrest for drink driving.

Ant was previously married to former wife Lisa for 12 years.

The pair, who were together for 23 years, confirmed their split in 2018, following Ant’s stint in rehab the previous year where he sought treatment for painkiller addiction.

Following rehab, Ant took a year out from TV and he and Lisa parted ways, with their divorce being finalised in April 2020.

Moving on: Ant split from ex wife of 12 years Lisa Armstrong in 2018 and the pair's divorce was finalised two years later in April 2020
