Unknown person’s perspective: I watched as she was buried into the ground. The news of her death had left me devastated. I still couldn’t recover from the fact that she was no more. My heart crumpled looking at her pale face. I hadn’t imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be the one eulogizing […]

ANT McPartlin’s ex-wife Lisa Armstrong enjoyed a pub date with a hunky chef who went back to hers. Make-up artist Lisa, 42, was seen giggling with James Howarth, 44, last week in Chiswick, West London. Ant McPartlin’s ex-wife Lisa Armstrong enjoyed a pub date with chef James Howarth, 44, last week and invited him back to hers Pals say the couple are “right” for each other especially as James has a sausage dog named Harley which may be a good omen — as Lisa has a pooch called Hurley. James is said to have helped Lisa “get her sparkle back” after her divorce last year from TV star Ant. She told friends she is “looking for love again” and was seen laughing and giggling with James on a date last week. The pair had dinner in a pub and took part in a quiz before walking back after chucking-out time to her home nearby in Chiswick, West London. James brought his pooch Harley on the date with dog-lover Lisa Lisa has told friends she is ‘looking for love again’ following her split from Ant They all went inside but it is unclear if Harley met Hurley, as Lisa shares custody of her chocolate labrador with Ant. One drinker at the City Barge boozer said of the couple: “They were extremely tactile with one another and Lisa was clearly enjoying the attention. “He was just making her laugh all the time. They took part in the quiz but didn’t really pay much attention to it. “They seemed only to have eyes for each other. It was like no one else was in the room — it was lovely to see. Lisa shares custody of chocolate labrador Hurley with ex Ant James’ dog Harley has his own Instagram account documenting his life and travels “They were just so engrossed in each other, laughing and joking. No one would begrudge her a little happiness.” It is the first time Lisa has been seen out with another man since she and Ant split in January 2018. Lisa and public-school educated James were in the pub last Wednesday from around 8pm to 11pm. They drank beer and wine and ate fries, while he also had steak. Malta-born James went to £10,000-a-term Warminster School near Bath, and is head chef at another pub in Chiswick, the Havelock Tavern. James is head chef at the Havelock Tavern in Chiswick He was born in Malta and attended £10,000-a-term Warminster School near Bath He lives in a smart flat in East London, with an Instagram feed full of pictures of Harley and a variety of food dishes. One of his two sisters, Camilla, has recently started working for Lisa as her PA. A source said: “It’s in the very early stages, nothing too serious, but Lisa really likes James and finds him very good company. “They went out on Wednesday but did not get together on Valentine’s, the following day, because she went to a Neneh Cherry gig and he was working.” Following his split from Lisa Ant quickly found love with ex-PA Anne-Marie Corbett Lisa was left devastated last year when Britain’s Got Talent host Ant, 43, embarked on a relationship with their ex-PA Anne-Marie Corbett. The source added: “Lisa has been through an extremely difficult time because of everything that happened with Ant. “She was left broken-hearted and picking up the pieces. “Ant found love very quickly and that was hard to take for Lisa. It was all very public. She spent several months grieving for the relationship. Friends say Lisa has finally ‘got her sparkle back’ after her devastating split from Ant “But she’s started to smile again and wants to find love. She’s got her sparkle back. “She’s under no illusions — she’s not going to fall head over heels for the first man she meets. “But she’s been keen to start dating again. James seems just right for her. “It’s all new for her as she and Ant got together when they were teenagers and stayed together until last year. Ant and Lisa met as teenagers and were married for 11 years Lisa was granted a decree nisi in October last year after Ant admitted adultery “She’s nervous but excited at the same time. The time is right for Lisa. “This is a massive step for her but she’s ready to move on from Ant.” Ant and Lisa split a year ago after his troubles with booze and drug addiction. In June, the Sun on Sunday revealed he found love with Anne-Marie, 42, sparking a bitter public feud. Friends say Lisa is ready to move on from Ant [boxout headline=”3 chums bring joy at last” intro=”By Clemmie Moodie”]BY anyone’s reckoning, Lisa Armstrong has had a dog-rough past 12 months.

So it’s about time Lisa found something, or indeed someone, to smile about. So far she’s struggled to move on with her life. We all hope she is now finally getting back to being more like her old self. It’s early days with sausage dog-owner James but he makes her laugh which is the surest way to anyone’s heart.
