LISA Armstrong looked delighted to be arriving at The Blackpool Tower this afternoon ahead of Saturday night’s live Strictly Come Dancing show at the famous Ballroom.
Ant McPartlin’s ex-wife, 42, who is working as the series’ head of hair and make-up wore a black outfit as she hid behind a pair of dark sunglasses.
Her top had the words “glam squad” emblazoned across it in multi-coloured lettering and she carried a large, bright yellow bag on her arm and a black back on the other.
She had on a pair of brown suede, heeled boots and her bleached blonde hair was scraped back on her head.
Lisa, who has gone through her share of trouble with her television presenting ex Ant as he deals with his personal troubles, beamed from ear-to-ear as she headed into the glamorous venue to prepare for this weekend’s broadcast of the BBC ballroom dance contest.
The previous evening she stepped out in the Lancashire town and appeared giggly as she and her Strictly pals enjoyed a few drinks.

The make-up professional was granted a divorce from Ant last month but sparked speculation amongst her social media followers that she still had feelings for the star after she was seen wearing a glistening ring on her finger in Blackpool.
However she was quick to stamp out any rumours and gave her followers the story behind the jewellery.
She posted: “Just for the record that’s not my wedding ring, it’s my diamond band bought by my money my late grandfather left me.”
Lisa is still embroiled in a legal battle with her ex over the division of the TV presenter’s £62million fortune and custody of their pet Labrador, Hurley, after they were granted their divorce.
She went to the Royal Courts of Justice for a planned hearing last week, but Ant didn’t show up, and pictures later emerged of him walking Hurley on Wimbledon Common with new girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett when he should have been in court.
The Sun first revealed that the couple were divorcing after 11 years of marriage on January.
In a statement released to The Sun, Ant’s spokesman said: “In response to the recent speculation in the media, Ant is very sad to announce that, after 11 years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin.
“Ant asks for privacy at this difficult time, for both himself, Lisa and their immediate families. No further statement will be made.”
It has since been revealed that Ant has found love with his personal assistant, Anne-Marie Corbett.
