Dec Donnelly’s ‘message of support’ to Lisa Armstrong

Dec Donnelly has reportedly reached out to Lisa Armstrong after having zero contact with the make-up artist since her split from his best friend Ant McPartlin.

It’s been claimed that Ant’s TV sidekick contacted the Strictly make-up artist after it was revealed Ant had moved on with personal assistant Anne-Marie Corbett.

Dec is said to have told her in a text, "You know where I am if you need to talk. Be strong.”

According to sources, it’s the first time Dec has reached out to Lisa since Ant announced they were splitting.

They claimed Dec, who is expecting his first child with wife Ali Astall, has been "torn" between the pair as their divorce battle becomes increasingly hostile.

“He is best friends with Ant. Theirs is like a marriage. But he also feels for Lisa and what she’s going through," the source said.

They added to The Sun : "He doesn’t want any ill-feeling. He’s in such a difficult position, especially with things getting more ugly.”

It had been claimed Lisa was upset with Dec for taking sides, but now she feels "content".

Lisa jetted out of the UK shortly after Ant’s new relationship with Anne-Marie was revealed.

Anne-Marie, 42, is said to have been a ‘rock’ for Ant after he checked into rehab for a second time following a drink drive smash earlier this year.

The mum-of-two was their PA for six years and was said to have organised their 10th anniversary celebrations in 2016.

Lisa claimed that she only found out about their blossoming relationship through the media.

Accusing mother-of-two Anne-Marie, 42, of breaking the ‘girl code’, Lisa publicly vented her fury, tweeting, "And to think she was MY friend!"
