Who is Anne-Marie Corbett? The woman in the eye of Hurricane Ant McPartlin
It appears as though Corbett, who is 42, had been under Ant's nose this whole time. She works at a London management company that Declan Donelly's wife works at.
'Ant & Dec's Anthony McPartlin has found love again with his former personal assistant Anne-Marie Corbett. The British television presenter grew close to her in the last couple of months after he split with his former wife Lisa Armstrong.
Ant and Lisa divorced in early 2018 and had been together for more than a decade. They married in 2006 but split after 11 years of togetherness. He first met Lisa in 1994, who is a makeup artist and has also dabbled with a pop career which fizzled out before she could make it big. She has worked on 'Britain's Got Talent' and 'X-Factor'.
It appears as though Corbett, who is 42-years-old had been under Ant's nose this whole time. She works at a London management company that Anthony's bff Dec Donnelly's wife Ali Astall works at. She's been working there for 10 years now, so obviously, the two have always known each other. Strangely this is also around the time that Lisa and Ant tied the knot. The couple was first photographed together when they were spotted walking Ant's dog this April. Clearly, her supportive nature and presence have helped blossom this professional relationship into a full-fledged romance.
It is all said to have started after his arrest earlier this year. He was reportedly found to have had one too many drinks - he had had twice the legal limit at the time of his arrest, said the police reports. He was involved in a car crash at the time, where he allegedly hit two other cars as well, injuring a four-year-old minor girl with his Mini in Richmond, south west London in March.
The chargesheet reportedly said, "Drove a motor vehicle, namely a Black Mini…after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in your breath, namely 75 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 milliliters of breath, exceeded the prescribed limit." The Wimbledon Crown Court handled the case and Ant was slapped with a £86,000 fine and 20-month driving ban. He later apologized for the incident to the police, reportedly saying, "I'm very sorry I did this. I'm ashamed and mortified that this happened."
Ant went to rehab post the incident and that's when their romance started to blossom. A source told the Sun, "Lisa has suspected something as going on for quite some time and feels let down by Anne-Marie." Another friend told the same publication, "He's had a tough time of it, but Anne-Marie has put a smile back on his face again. She has been his rock." Anne had appeared with him during his court hearing in April as well as during his arrest in March. She was also spotted with him on the way to the rehab center.
Ant's ex-wife recently took to Twitter to express her discontentment. She tweeted multiple posts, speaking about how betrayed she felt. She tweeted in reply to friend Nicola McLean, "Yeah My Friend and OUR Pa who I let into OUR home. 💔" Nicola McLean wrote, "Sending my love Lisa!! Really feel for you worst pain ever." Clare Buckfield, Dec's ex also came out in support. She retweeted a support message saying, "Love you doll - you'll be OK promise. Me and Clare Buckfield will make sure of that."
Anne-Marie has two kids with her former husband Scott, who she split with in October last year. Mirror's sources state that "Ant was not linked to her marriage break up in any way".
