Lisa Armstrong ‘won’t be silenced’ as Ant McPartlin divorce nears court showdown

Lisa Armstrong is determined not to cave into demands by Ant McPartlin' s legal team and sign an non-disclosure agreement.

The Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist is understood to have made a promise to her late father to stand strong during the split from the I'm A Celeb host.

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."

They claimed that Ant's team are sending 'regular legal letters' but that the I'm A Celeb… host is "underestimating her".

The source added to the publication: "This is not just some pantomime or comedy show people can just laugh at and comment on. This is her life."

Meanwhile, a second source close to Ant went on to claim that he isn't wanting to pressure Lisa to sign a NDA and he is open to signing one himself.

"All correspondence goes through their lawyers, which is what Lisa requested," the source said.

"But he doesn't want it going to court. Why would he?

"He’s made her an incredibly generous offer and is hoping that they can move on."

They add: "It’s not about revenge for her.

"She just won’t be silenced, simple as that.

"She will have her say, at a time of her choosing."

It is thought that Ant had hoped for the divorce to have been signed off before he flew to Australia to film I'm A Celeb… 2019.

After a year off, Ant will join Declan Donnelly to co-host the ITV show once more.

I'm A Celeb returns on Sunday at 9pm.
