They were all together in Wimbledon, South London on Friday night.

But she has hired a top London law firm — and they have told her the split is “playing in her favour” due to Ant’s relationship with his former PA Anne-Marie, 42.
A source said: “Ant lost it with Lisa as they talked about divorce — they are at complete loggerheads.
“He told her to ‘f****** get on with it’ and said she was dragging everything out unnecessarily.
“Ant wants her to sign papers so they can all move on.
“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.
“Obviously, their separation has been played out in public — and Lisa’s lawyers have told her it all bodes well for her because she looks like the wronged party now Ant is with Anne-Marie.”
We told last week how Lisa had flown her parents to Los Angeles for support.
She has posted Instagram snaps showing off her new blonde look.
Lisa lashed out accused former pal Anne-Marie of breaking the “girl code” after The Sun on Sunday revealed Ant’s romance with the separated mum of two in June.
She was said to feel “betrayed” by the relationship – although it started months after she and Ant separated.
Ant — worth £62million — is said by pals to be happy to give Lisa a huge settlement that reflects the fact they had been together 23 years and married for 12.
But our source said: “There is no time limit — Lisa won’t walk away with the first offer she receives.”

One issue to be resolved is the future of their beloved dog.
Chocolate Labrador Hurley spends alternate weeks with Ant and Lisa.
One of Lisa’s pals is said to be looking after the dog during her custody stints while she is away.
Our source added: “Ant accepts that Lisa has contributed massively to his success. He is happy for that to be reflected in any settlement.
“From Lisa’s point of view, she wants a fair and just settlement.
“Ant has been warned by his lawyers that if Lisa drags her heels it could go on for up to five years which is what he wants to avoid.
“He has been painted as the bad guy but he will come out fighting if he needs to.
“He thinks Lisa was as much to blame for their marriage break-down as he was — and has told people her partying was an issue, when she was going out with all her Strictly mates.”
We told in June last year how troubled Ant checked himself into rehab after suffering booze and prescription drugs problems.
Anne-Marie was by his side after his drink-drive arrest in March and for the court case that saw him fined and hit with a 20-month road ban.
