Ant and Anne-Marie's outing comes shortly after Ant played golf with Anne-Marie's daughter, just days after asking her mother to marry him.

Ant has been linked to Anne-Marie since March 2018 and an "enthusiastic" Declan Donnelly is expected to appear "as best man" at her wedding – just like at Ant's first wedding in 2006.

When Declan spoke about the engagement, he said he was "happy" for his co-host, but joked that he wasn't being asked to be the best man just yet.

“He's a traditionalist, so he got on one knee after first asking Anne Marie's family that he had their blessing. It was super romantic and obviously Anne-Marie immediately said "yes". & # 39;

"Obviously, getting engaged in the middle of a pandemic is not ideal when it comes to planning a wedding. At the moment, a summer ceremony is extremely unlikely, so it could well be a 2022 matter."

They added that Ant should ask his co-host, Dec, to be his best man, and that the host thoughtfully designed Anne-Marie's ring himself.

During one of the trials, 30-year-old radio host Jordan North, who finished second on the show, was buried in a metal cage while 50 snakes slipped over him.

To make the 10 minutes faster, Jordan talked to the hosts and asked them random questions and signed autographs.

The DJ asked the duo to name their "happy place" and told Ant, "You go first."

He was quick to say, "At home with my girlfriend and the kids," which led to an "Oh, that's nice" from Jordan as he tried his best to stay calm with the lines.

Ant and Anne-Marie share two dogs, Milo and Brumble, and they are believed to have moved to their £ 6million seven-bedroom home in south-west London in 2020 after purchasing them the previous year.

Ant and Anne-Marie were first married in March 2018, two months after Ant posted a statement to confirm that he split from the wife of 12-year-old Lisa Armstrong.

However, when the news broke, the former singer took to Twitter to decline the reports and wrote, "No, another lot of nonsense …"

She went to "Like" tweets that said "No amount of money could ever make up for what this poor girl endured" and "Get what you can!"

& # 39; You deserve it! Terrible treatment of you since you found out when we did! And with a so-called friend! It's heartbreaking behavior, "said another.

In 2019, friends of the former couple told The Mail Am Sonntag that, despite Ant's efforts to hold back their separation, Lisa still wanted her day in court.

Lisa is said to have had the feeling that Ant got away with a lot after their breakup. She was also believed to be upset and deeply hurt that he moved on so quickly when he began a new relationship with Anne-Marie.

A source close to the couple said, “Ant has been very generous with financial handling, but Lisa is the opposite of someone motivated by money.

“She doesn't care – she deserves her own. But she's been so hurt from all of this.

“What the general public and his fans don't realize is that Ant's decision to end the marriage was made after years of Lisa trying to save him from herself.

It was very, very difficult to watch him move on. Lisa is very aware that a judge may not forgive her as much as Ant offers, but she doesn't care.

"She's suffered tremendously from all of this and she wants her day in court."

Their union legally ended during a 30-second hearing in October 2018 that was finalized over a decade of marriage.

During the hearing, Ant technically had to admit adultery with Anne-Marie when their relationship officially began while he and Lisa were still married.

A year before their split, Ant entered rehab after struggling with a two-year dependence on high-strength pain medication after knee surgery in 2015.

In April 2018, he was banned from the street for 20 months and fined £ 86,000 for being more than double what the law required.

The relationship between Ant McPartlin and Lisa Armstrong

Ant and Lisa first met in 1994. It was at this time that Ant and lifelong television partner Declan Donnelly were reaching new heights in television and music as PJ & Duncan after their stint at Byker Grove. Lisa was in a band called Deuce at the time.

The couple met on the Smash Hits Tour in Newcastle in 1994, where Lisa's Deuce performed alongside Ant and Dec's musical alter ego.

They started dating and dated for over ten years before Ant decided to take it to the next level and suggested Lisa while on vacation in Dubai in 2005.

Fights: In 2013, Ant and Lisa spoke of their difficulties conceiving and told the Radio Times, “Lisa and I would love to have children. We try it. It's harder than you think & # 39;

They were married on July 26th 2006 in a country house hotel in Buckinghamshire. Dec was Ant's best man.

It was during this time that Deuce split and Lisa trained as a makeup artist, eventually working her way up to become the makeup and hair director for BBC's Strictly Come Dancing.

In 2013, Ant and Lisa spoke about their difficulties conceiving and told Radio Times, “Lisa and I would love to have children. We try it. It's harder than you think as you get older. "

The TV star also announced that he wasn't holding back having children until Dec, who was single at the time, was dating someone.

"There is a rumor that we'll do it all together and I'm holding back kids until Dec finds Mrs. Right. I love this idea, but I'm afraid it's not true."

He also told Fabulous Magazine, “I think I'm lucky. Lisa works in the industry and understands it. She works all the time – sometimes more than me!

“We would like to have a family that keeps our fingers crossed. When we are blessed with children, we are overjoyed! "

The couple made public appearances while attending Dec's wedding to Ali Astall, where Ant returned the favor and served as Dec's best man.

Lisa has been a supporter of Ant and his lucrative television career, most recently at the 2017 National Television Awards – just 12 months before the couple announced their split.

In June 2017, Ant went into rehab for alcohol and drug addiction.

In a statement made to The Sun at the time, Ant said, “The first step is to admit to yourself that you need help. I've let people down. I'm really sorry. I feel like I've let a lot of people down and I'm really sorry about that. I want to thank my wife, family and closest friends during this really difficult time. "

Lisa took to Twitter to thank her husband for her support: “Completely overwhelmed by all of your love and support, it means so much. I am relieved that he is getting the help he needs. We just need him better. "

Ant then told the Sun about the effects his addiction had on Lisa: I led Lisa through hell with mood swings and depression, and how she affects you. I am very sorry about the impact this has on the partners. That kind of stuff puts a strain on every marriage. At the moment, all I can say is that it was great – fantastic throughout. "

In the fall of 2017, rumors of a breakup surfaced after Lisa failed to accompany Ant to Australia because I'm a celebrity. She quickly denied this, pointing out that she has a job and has not been to Australia in years.

On January 14, 2018, the couple announced that their 11-year marriage had ended.

The couple announced their split in January when a representative said: “In response to recent media speculation, Ant is very sad to announce that he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin after eleven years.

In March 2018, Anne-Marie Corbett, the couple's personal assistant, was seen giving Ant a packed lunch outside his house. She accompanied him to his trial in April.

The pair will continue to be seen for the next several months. After Lisa announced in June 2018 that she didn't know Ant and Corbett were dating, she accused Ant's new girlfriend of breaking the girl's code by dating the TV star.

In October 2018, just days before the divorce petition was approved, Ant was holding his phone, which has him and Corbett as a screensaver.

Their union legally ended during a 30-second hearing.
