She liked a tweet by Piers Morgan that read: ‘Good decision. Best of luck to Dec. Won’t be easy but he’s doing the right thing, as I’m sure Ant would agree.’
Finally, Lisa liked a post from Sky Sports’ Simon Thomas – who recently lost his wife to cancer – that read: ‘I’d never known loneliness . . . . . until now. Now I know why for far too many in this country it’s a horrible, unwanted daily reality.’
MailOnline has contacted Lisa for comment.

Meanwhile, Ant checked into rehab this week following his drink-driving charge.
The 42-year-old TV star checked into a private London clinic after being bailed to appear before magistrates early next month.
Discussions about the future of his TV career are reportedly being held without his involvement because he has ‘checked out’ as he enters rehab to recover from the shock crash. He is thought to only be in contact with Dec and his mother.
In a statement, Ant’s publicist said: ‘Ant has decided to go back into treatment and step down from his current TV commitments. He has spoken with Dec and ITV and asked for time off for the foreseeable future.’
Dec is said to be ‘gutted and devastated’ for his friend of 29 years and worried for the future of their 20-year TV partnership.
