Lisa Armstrong may be loved up with her new man James Green – but she has not “forgiven or forgotten how she was treated” by ex Ant McPartlin, an insider has told.
The make-up artist was married to Ant for 12 years before they ended their romance in 2018.
Following the breakdown of the marriage, Lisa found love with beau James and telly star Ant has remarried his former PA Anne -Marie Corbett.
Despite appearing smitten with James, in recent weeks Lisa has sparked speculation that she is not over Ant after hitting out at his PR team on social media.
But a pal of Lisa has told that her friend’s outburst was not due to her being “bitter” but because she “feels she’s still owed an apology” from her former spouse.
An insider told New! magazine: “Lisa loves James and she doesn’t feel she’s the bitter woman.”
They added: “People think she lashes out because she’s still not over Ant but the truth is she’s not forgotten or forgiven how she was treated. She just feels she’s still owed an apology.”
Earlier this month, Lisa grabbed headlines when she hit out at Ant and co-host Dec’s team following their most recent National Television Award win.
She proved she was seething after the pair picked up the Best Presenter award, for the twentieth year in a row, by posting a sassy remark below a tribute post to the TV stars.

In celebration of the win, Ant and Dec’s PR guru Simon Jones paid tribute to the stars – which led to Lisa taking to the comments section of the post to leave a scathing remark.
Simon uploaded a snap of Ant and Dec and wrote: “20 years! So so proud of my amazing friends Ant and Dec for winning Best TV Presenter at the NTA’s for the 20th year in a row! And proud to say I have been with them at the awards every year of those 20 wins. We’ve been on a brilliant journey so far and long may it continue.”
Taking a savage swipe at her ex-husband and his PR team, Lisa penned below: “And you don’t care who you screw over in the process. Well done.”
PR professional Simon was having none of what Lisa had to say and he furiously hit back at her, telling her to ‘move on’ with her life and stop blaming other people for her mistakes.
Simon clapped back: “Lisa, please don’t come on to my Instagram with your negativity and false accusations.
“It really is about time you moved on and got on with your life, and stopped unfairly blaming other people for your mistakes.”
Following the breakdown of her marriage, Lisa has found love again with boyfriend James Green.
