Lisa Armstrong has paid a heartbreaking tribute to her late father as she marked the ten-month anniversary of his death. Sharing a throwback snap with her parents, the ex-wife of Ant McPartlin wrote: "Still feels so unreal... #10months #loveyousomuch xxx." The post comes almost a year after Lisa lost her dad to cancer. Derek, who was 71, was believed to have been diagnosed in 2018, but Lisa has never publicly spoken about her father's illness.

In November, Lisa shared a photo of Derek in honour of the six-month anniversary of his death. The photo showed Lisa as a child, beaming with happiness as her dad enveloped her in a warm hug and smiled at the camera. The Strictly makeup artist captioned the sweet snap with an emotional message, writing: "Six months today..... time flies but it doesn’t get any easier."
