Putting the past year well and truly behind her, Lisa Armstrong made sure her 42nd birthday went without a hitch! The celebrity makeup artist, who recently divorced TV presenter Ant McPartlin, hosted a fun party, which was attended by her friends from Strictly Come Dancing who were tended to by some naked butlers. "Fun night celebrating with this one!!! @lisaamkup Happy Birthday to ya," wrote hairstylist Lisa Davey. Makeup artist Lydia Barnes added another snap with the words: "Celebrating the beautiful Lisa Armstrong's birthday. Love her."

The Strictly makeup artist was surrounded by her loved ones

The birthday celebrations come just a week after Lisa and Ant officially ended their marriage. The former couple were granted a decree nisi at a Central Family Court hearing in London which lasted just 30 seconds on Tuesday 16 October. They confirmed their split in January after months of speculation; they had been together for 23 years and married in 2006. The TV presenter has since found love with his new girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett, who was the former couple's PA.

After her split from the TV star, Ant was arrested for drink-driving in March. The following month, he pleaded guilty and was ordered to pay £85,000 along with being sentenced to a 20-month driving ban.
