Ant McPartlin becomes & # 39; deeply sad & # 39; named after his ex-wife Lisa Armstrong allegedly refused to show him her father before he died of cancer.
The host of Britain's Got Talent is said to have made an attempt at the last minute to see his former father-in-law, Derek Armstrong, as the 71-year-old returned home die after fighting for a year with cancer.
The Sun reports that Ant, 43, was advised by his own family to stay away, but decided to visit Mr. Armstrong.
He was then & # 39; destroyed & # 39; left behind when his ex-wife Lisa refused him access to the house in Oxford, where Derek lived.
A source revealed that Ant & # 39; was desperate to see Derek & # 39; especially because he considered him a & # 39; father figure & # 39; after he had been alienated from his own father for more than 30 years.
Ant was said to be "extremely upset to learn." [Derek] was terminally ill, "and hoped to see him," despite all that happened with the breakdown of his marriage. "
According to the source, Ant & # 39; was not welcome in the family home & # 39; and Lisa was horrified to look out the window and saw Ant coming out of nowhere.
The couple had no contact for twelve months and, despite Ant's pleas, he is said to have been rejected.
Ant's relationship with Derek went downhill after he got divorced from Lisa in January 2018 and then found love with his former personal assistant Anne-Marie Corbett.
It is claimed that Derek said to Ant at some point: & # 39; never talk to his daughter again & # 39 ;.
Lisa was reportedly upset when Ant & # 39; s relationship with Anne-Marie was made public and her parents gathered as they were, "very concerned about the effect that marriage had on her."
Lisa and Ant are still in a stalemate with its £ 62 million capital and legal costs have reached £ 1.5 million while the lawyers are trying to find a way forward.
