Lisa Armstrong is reportedly making a BIG move in the hopes of a fresh start

Good for her.

It looks like the lovely Lisa Armstrong is set to make a big move, and we’re delighted for her.

The ex-wife of Ant McPartlin and makeup artist to the stars is currently working on Strictly Come Dancing.

However, when that ends in December it been reported that she might consider a fresh start.

Why not?

Closer Magazine has reported that Lisa will be taking a 6 month break in Los Angeles after Strictly.

And we’re pretty jealous of her.

A source told the magazine: “Lisa’s trying to move on with her life and start afresh, but things are still very raw for her.”

“Hearing the news about Ant moving into a dream family home with Anne-Marie and playing stepdad to her kids and living the life they always envisaged for themselves has brought a lot of raw feelings to the surface.”

As you may recall, Lisa went to LA in 2018 after her marriage to Ant broke down.

And in fairness, she has pals and contacts (like Simon Cowell) out there, so she probably wouldn’t struggle to find work.

Lisa Armstrong and Ant McPartlin called it quits in 2018, after 12 years of marriage and 23 years together.

Six months later, Ant had started a relationship with Anne-Marie Corbett, the PA that the couple had shared.

So yeah, it has been a rough few years for Lisa, so she well deserves a bit of a California sabbatical.
