Piers Morgan congratulates Lisa Armstrong on award win after Twitter spat with her ex-husband Ant McPartlin
PIERS Morgan congratulated Lisa Armstrong on winning a make-up award after his public Twitter spat with her ex-husband Ant McPartlin.
The 54-year-old Good Morning Britain presenter has thrown his support behind the 41-year-old star following her bitter split with the Geordie presenter last year.
Lisa proudly took to her social media page to announce that she had won the best Make Up Design – Entertainment & Non Drama gong at the Royal Television Society Craft Awards.
Piers retweeted the official RTS message and pointedly added: "Congrats to my lovely friend & long-time Life Stories make-up artist @lisaAmakeup for this well-deserved award. Proud of you!"
Just over a week ago, Piers was left unimpressed when Ant and his co-star Declan Donnelly made a jibe about him during I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.
His GMB co-host Kate Garraway was about to take on a BushTucker Trial when Dec said she had a "huge challenge" ahead.
Ant quipped: "But before she goes back to work with Piers Morgan, she’s got three weeks in the jungle!"
When Piers shared how unhappy he was by the remark online, Ant simply replied: "Snowflake".
Piers jibed back: "At least I have my own Twitter account & don't have to share one with my mate."
But the Geordie host refused to back down, replying: "Oh yeah? Well our dads bigger than your dad. Grow up you big wally!"
Piers laid into the pair during the following day's ITV breakfast show, moaning: "Ant and Dec between them, because they are the only non separated, non Siamese twins… I am twice as popular as each of them. Why are they national treasures and I am not?"
Referencing Ant's short height, he added: "That titch."
Yesterday, Lisa hinted that she had been "treated shabbily" by Ant during their divorce when she liked a tweet from a fan that read: "You have been treated shabbily Lisa, am on your side, never give up."
The pair's sensational break-up has been rumbling on, with The Sun Online previously revealing that Ant has demanded his ex-wife signs an NDA – and will not agree to a financial settlement until she does.
