Lisa Armstrong 'axed from Britain's Got Talent' as working with ex Ant McPartlin had become 'untenable'

December 10, 2018

The Mirror reports that the make-up artist will no longer be working on the hit reality show since splitting with the award winning presenter.

Lisa, 42, has spent more than ten years working on the programme but will not return to ensure Ant's comeback “goes smoothly with no unnecessary distractions”.

A show insider told the paper: "Although everyone is very fond of Lisa, it was clearly untenable to carry on working together.

“Ant and Dec are two of the most senior people on the show, sometimes these tough decisions have to be made.”

It comes after The Sun exclusively revealed that Ant has been cleared to return to work next month.



Ant and Dec’s comeback as a double act comes after McPartlin took eight months off work after crashing his car in a drink drive incident.

Lisa works full time as a make-up artist on Strictly Come Dancing and heads up the Bafta winning team.

She has also worked on Britain’s Got Talent and for Stephen Mulhern on his new series, In For A Penny.

Lisa is said to have expected the chop and can look forward to her new role on a new makeover TV show.


She will work alongside Kate Middleton’s hairdresser, Richard Ward, and stylist Erica Matthews, whose work has appeared in a number of high fashion publications, including British Vogue.

Insiders told The Sun Online Lisa was the perfect choice for the show, which is still in the development stage.

The Sun Online has contacted Lisa's representatives for comment.
