LISA Armstrong was spotted puffing on a cigarette as she enjoyed a girls’ night out last night following her divorce settlement from Ant McPartlin.
The 43-year-old was joined by a group of mates as she hit the pub – looking chic in a long teddy coat.
The Strictly make-up artist wore her hair swept back off her face and her usual heavy eye-liner.
She was seen looking animated as she chatted to her friends at a pub near the house she shared with her ex husband.
Her outing comes after it was revealed she plans to sell the £6million house where she lived with the presenter and wants to start afresh with her multi-million pound settlement.
She intends to buy a flat and live with two of her closest girlfriends.
A source said: “She and Ant lived in the house for years. It holds a lot of bad memories and now the divorce is being finalised she wants to start again somewhere new.
“The last two years have been extremely lonely at times but she’s now looking to the future.
“And instead of sitting in a ginormous house all on her own she’s looking to enjoy the single life with two of her best friends.
“It’ll be like when she first started out all those years ago.
