New reports claim Ant and Lisa are still odds as to how to split the Saturday Night Takeaway host's £60 million fortune.

Ant McPartlin's divorce from Lisa Armstrong appears to be getting more complicated by the day, with their legal battle over the I'm a Celeb... host's £60 million fortune reaching boiling point.

The Sun claim Ant, who filed for divorce from Lisa back in January 2018, is at a deadlock in his settlement as Lisa refuses to sign a non-disclosure agreemen.

Friends also claim he wants to propose to girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett in the near future.

It's claimed the 43-year-old presenter has insisted he will share his multimillion pound fortune with Lisa, but insiders close to the makeup artist claim she is yet to receive a formal offer from her ex-husband.

Lisa was granted a decree nisi in October, however, talks have apparently come to a stand still after the ending their 12-year marriage.

A source said: "It's hit rock bottom. It's like Brexit. There's no deal, no way forward and lots of bickering. It could eventually be decided by the courts.

"All Lisa wants is for a deal to be done so that she can move on with her life. But she feels she's been left in limbo.

"She says no one from Ant's side has made a formal financial offer."

The news comes after friends claim they are expecting Ant to propose to his new girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett, who he has been dating since February last year.

A source told The Sun: "She has moved in with him very recently.

“It is obviously a big step for them. But they just want to be together and their home is really a love-nest.

"Their friends half-expect further news, like an engagement."
