Ant McPartlin seen for the first time with girlfriend Anne-Marie since agreeing to give ex Lisa £31M in divorce

ANT McPartlin looked happy today as he's seen for the first time since agreeing to give ex Lisa £31m in their divorce settlement.

Yesterday The Sun reported that the ITV star, 44, settled his bitter legal battle with the Strictly make-up artist, 43, at a face-to-face meeting in ­London on Tuesday.

It is one of the biggest celebrity divorce settlements in British history and will see Ant give his ex-wife over half of his £50million fortune.

But Ant looked surprisingly chipper as he took his dogs for a walk this morning.

He walked the Maltipoo dogs he shares with his girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett alongside his chocolate Labrador Hurley.

Earlier today we reported that Ant will share custody of his dog Hurley with his ex Lisa.

The former couple came to the decision about their beloved chocolate Labrador as both felt they didn’t want to give him up.

A source said: “Neither of them could live without Hurley so they agreed to share custody.

“His welfare will now be their primary concern.”

Following their split in January 2018 the estranged couple had been fighting over custody of Hurley - with Lisa posting a selfie with him on Monday.

Ant has previously spoken of his bond with the mutt, telling The Sun: “There’s a loyalty and a love and a companionship with Hurley that you can’t describe.”

He insisted: “Hurley’s welfare comes first and we both love him very much. That’s the way it is really.”

On Tuesday the ITV star settled his bitter legal battle with the Strictly make-up artist.

A source close to both sides said: “They both decided they wanted it resolved.”

Ant is said to be “delighted” after agreeing to give Lisa over half of his £50million fortune.

She will also keep the couple’s £5million former marital home in West London.

Lisa is not expected to be entitled to the ITV favourite’s future earnings as part of the deal.

Neither side is believed to have signed a confidentiality agreement.
