ANT McPartlin has been spotted heading to the shops for groceries on a break from I’m A Celebrity.
The presenter, 44, has made a comeback on the jungle show after the public gave him a second chance following his drink drive arrest last year.
Having quit booze and prescription drugs, Ant looked fresh-faced and trim as he walked along the street wearing his Gucci sliders.
Though his girlfriend and ‘sober coach’ Anne-Marie Corbett travelled to Australia to keep him company, she was nowhere to be seen on his trip to the shops.
Ant bared his legs in shorts and wore a patterned shirt, that revealed a glimpse of his wrist tattoo.
Though Ant looked relaxed, no doubt his looming divorce woes weighed heavy on his mind.
Last week The Sun revealed talks had broken down between Ant and his ex-wife Lisa Armstrong over a gag order.
It is now increasingly likely their dispute could end up in a public mud-slinging showdown at the High Court in London — something Ant is desperate to avoid.
Lisa is refusing to sign the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) — and Ant will not agree to a financial settlement until she does.
Sources close to Lisa’s camp say Ant’s side are sending regular legal letters, running up a massive bill thought to have already passed the £1.5million mark.
Ant’s legal team wants to avoid going to court, which could mean excruciating details of the couple’s 12-year marriage being made public.
After his drink-drive crash in March last year, time in rehab for addiction to painkillers and relationship with his former PA Anne-Marie — who Lisa considered a friend — Ant has rebuilt his image and been given a second chance by the public.
In order to protect his reputation from further damage, he is asking Lisa, 43, to sign a NDA — and will not agree to a financial settlement until she does.
But Lisa is refusing to sign the so-called gagging order.
A source close to the couple told The Sun: “Lisa is an honest, loyal and decent human being. She isn’t interested in how much money she gets.
“She told her dad Derek on his death bed earlier this year that she would stand strong and she’s not about to go back on her word.
“She won’t sign an NDA. As far as she’s concerned, he is welcome to his money.
“It’s not about that for her. She’s appalled at the way she has been treated ever since they split up, by people she loved, trusted and called friends.
“He is sending her regular lawyers’ letters. The legal bill for this divorce is easily past the £1.5million mark.
“But Ant is underestimating her. She’s not scared any more. She is more determined than ever not to fold and to get what’s hers. She only ever wanted it to be fair.”
