The divorce fight of Anta McPartlin with his ex-wife Lisa continues – that's what we know so far



TV presenter Ant McPartlin and his ex-wife Lisa Armstrong are fighting for a divorce with money.

McPartlin, best known for his collaboration with Declan Donnelly as Ant and Dec, announced that he had separated himself from his wife earlier this year.

The 42-year-old volunteered for rehabilitation last year after two years of dependence on super-painful painkillers after a knee surgery in 2015.

In April, he was removed from the road for 20 months and fined 86,000 pounds for driving, and more than double the normal limit for drink travel.

After that, McPartlin announced that he was again withdrawing from his television obligations.

This is the latest divorce battle of Anti and Lisa:

Did the couple get divorced?

Divorce has already been finalized.

Judge Alun Jenkins issued a decree nisi at a hearing at the Central Family Court in London in October.

What has happened since then?

Lisa attended the preliminary hearing on the division of property in the High Court Family Department in London on Monday.

But Ant himself did not participate, and the press spokesman said "no disrespect" was intended for the court.

He said: "Ant has been informed by his media lawyer that he does not need to appear in court today.

"There was absolutely no intention to disregard the court."

What did the judge say?

Mr. Justice Mosyn questioned why the presenter was absent, and confirmed that he was "sent back" to his Sunday court.

Mr. Justice Mosyn asked Jonathan Southgate's attorney, QC, who leads Ant's legal team, "Why is not he here?"

He added: "There is no one right for the famous and one for the rest of the community.

"The rules say that he should be here – and this can be reported."

The judge pointed out that he could release McPartlin from his absence, if he contacted him earlier and gave the reason.

How much of the divorce fight can you report?

The trial was held privately, and Judge M. Mostyn created restrictions on what could be reported.

Journalists can exchange people involved, but the judge ruled that detailed information about their confidential financial information will not be allowed.

What's next?

The next hearings are to take place in the near future.
