The message came soon after Armstrong liked a supportive message about her ex

Lisa Armstrong took to her social media to share a defiant message following her ex-husband Ant McPartlin’s emotional appearance on the Saturday Night Takeaway final.

It came just hours after the makeup artist displayed a rare show of support towards McPartlin, whom she was married to from 2006 to 2018.

Armstrong, 47, shared with her Instagram followers a cryptic message after McPartlin and co-star Dec Donnelly, both 48, marked the end of an era as their show of 22 years came to an end.

Taking to the social media app’s story section, she shared a message which read: “And she gave zero f**ks,” as reported by the Daily Record.

The former couple had been together for decades and married for 11 years before announcing their split six years ago.

Sadly, the break up was far from amicable, with plenty of bad blood between the two laid bare in the years since.

Armstrong discovered soon after the split that McPartlin had begun dating their former personal assistant, Anne-Marie Corbett, whom he went on to marry in 2021, The Mirror reports.

Taking to X after finding out the two had started a relationship, Armstrong replied to a fan’s comment to state: “Yeah My friend and OUR PA who I let into OUR home”.

However, Armstrong seemed to show some sympathy towards her ex on Saturday by liking a post applauding Ant and Dec on their final show.

The post read: "After 20 years this amazing show is coming to a end it's been a real joy & pleasure to have been there from the beginning, & in my 30 year career in showbiz I've worked with some brilliant people but these two are simply the best! Great friendships & memories made.”

The final episode of ITV’s Saturday Night Takeaway saw both men holding back tears as they presented the send-off.

McPartlin told viewers: “It's been an honour and a privilege to have made the show and been part of your Saturday nights for 22 years.”

Donnelly continued: “When we started this back in 2002 we both thought we'd be lucky if we got to do this for maybe a couple of years.

“So what's happened has honestly been beyond our wildest dreams, We have truly adored every second of making this show.”

The milestone episode featured several big names, including Simon Cowell and Holly Willoughby.

Some fans were surprised not to see Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden on the show after the 53-year-old made headlines this week for her feud with Sharon Osbourne.

Holden, 53, found herself at the centre of a bitter row over the weekend after she defended Simon Cowell, 64, against Osbourne and Louis Walsh, both 71.

However, a spokesperson ITV responded by telling The Mirror: "Amanda was listed in credits along with every other celebrity involved in the Revenge GOOME (in studio or not). Amanda wasn't meant to be here tonight, nor was Holly, Gino, Richard and Olly - all had prior engagements.”
