In an emotional outburst, the Strictly make-up artist responded to a follower who told her she is "throwing her marriage away" and does not "understand" the painkiller addiction that Ant has been going through. The 41-year-old replied: "Educate yourself first love and get your facts rights. You don't know!! Sorry for your pain x."

Ant's wife was immediately inundated with messages of support, with one writing: "It's only yours & Ants business why you have both decided this is your only option. Stay strong girl." Another said: "Only you and Ant know what’s going on with your marriage. I really hope it works out for you both." A third post read: "Do not explain yourself to anybody! You do not have to justify your decisions! Be happy beautiful lady." One fan remarked: "Lisa please look after yourself. Ignore these people. No one knows what goes on behind closed doors. Keep strong. Sending love."

The tweet comes a month after Lisa hit back at reports suggesting her marriage to Ant is "on the rocks" following his stint in rehab. The make-up artist, who has been with Ant for 23 years, took to Twitter to quash the rumours, claiming she was not "estranged" from her TV star husband. In a string of hashtags, Lisa wrote: "#writewhatyouwant #haventbeentoOzfor10years #ihaveajob #allaloadofmadeups*** #imnotestrangedthank-you #asyouwere." Her partner checked himself into rehab back in June after becoming addicted to painkillers following surgery on his knee.
