Ant McPartlin has confirmed that he and his wife are to divorce after 11 years of marriage.

The one-half of Ant and Dec announced the news via his spokesman on Saturday, who said in a statement: "Ant is very sad to announce, that after 11 years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin".

After speculation the couple held 'emotional" crisis talks over their marriage, the couple have chose to split "to do the right thing for his health'.

Ant, 42, who has battled a prescription drugs addiction will split from his wife "to do the right thing for his health".

Both Ant and Lisa have asked for respect and privacy during this harrowing time.

It seems Lisa Armstrong is taking comfort from fans' messages of support on social media after her divorce from Ant McPartlin was announced late last night.

'No further statement will be made'. "It hasn't happened overnight. They've been having problems for ages", following the news of the divorce.

Still, Lisa took to Twitter as recently as November to deny that she and her husband were "estranged".

Ant's divorce to Lisa has "no reflection on her", the source insisted.

McPartlin entered rehab last summer and a source told the newspaper that his marriage had "effectively been struggling for eight months".

They also stated how they came to the decision after meeting up "a number of times", adding: 'He is obviously really upset about it'.

"Ant's big concern in the whole thing is Lisa and making it as easy as possible for her". They're best friends. She's always stood by him and been supportive.

Despite rumours of a rift between the couple, Lisa responded to questions about the status of the couples marriage by tweeting that she hadn't been out to Australia with Ant for 10 years.

"But she is gradually realising that as far as he is concerned, there's no way back".

When Lisa was accused of "throwing [her] marriage away" a year ago by a Twitter troll, Lisa replied: "Educate yourself first, love, and get your facts rights".
