The TV presenter is 'furious' with his ex-wife for her delay in signing their divorce papers

Troubled Ant McPartlin is apparently angry at his estranged wife Lisa Armstrong because she hasn't yet signed their divorce papers.

He has recently entered into a romantic relationship with ex-PA Anne-Marie Corbett, and he's clearly ready to cut ties with his ex-wife.

However, Lisa is apparently not quite so ready - and is wanting to hold out for as long as possible to get the best divorce deal she possibly can, and has even hired herself a top lawyer.

But, according to reports, Ant has 'begged' her to sign the papers, and has apparently offered their £6million house if she signs ASAP.

As Lisa is holding out, though, Ant has been advised that the divorce could take up to five years to complete. He has apparently been complaining to friends, stating that she is "dragging her heels."

A source close to the couple told The Sun: "Ant called her last week and they spoke for the first time since the news about his relationship with Anne Marie came out. He begged her to hurry up with the divorce because he just wants to move on with his life. He is happy to give her what she wants, including the house, and to be very generous with a settlement. But Lisa is being very canny, and biding her time."

Lisa is currently spending time away from the situation in LA with her parents.

She has been spotted shopping, going on hikes and relaxing on the beach during some much-needed me-time.

However, back home, Ant has been very public with his new romance - as he was spotted on a double date with co-host Declan Donnelly and his wife at Wimbledon last weekend.
