Ant McPartlin's ex Lisa Armstrong beams on night out with Holly Willoughby in Happy Birthday throwback

LISA Armstrong has wished Holly Willoughby a "happy birthday" in a throwback snap from a night out together.

Ex-wife of TV presenter Ant McPartlin, Lisa, 44, took to Instagram to post the picture from 2012 which shows them smiling together with friends.

One of many celeb pals who sent This Morning host Holly best wishes for her 40th birthday, Lisa told the star she hoped she'd had "an amazing day".

Lisa, who split with Ant in 2017 following 11 years together, wrote: "Happy Birthday @hollywilloughby. Hope you've had an amazing day."

She went on to joke about where "the time had gone" as she revealed the photo of the "girls" was taken almost a decade ago.

It comes not long after Lisa took to Instagram with a video promoting her make-up line on the same day her ex-husband got engaged to his girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett.

Ignoring the news, the professional make-up artist instead posted about the moisturiser she launched with beauty giant Avon.

Holly celebrated live on ITV yesterday, thanking her co-host Phillip Schofield and the backstage team for "spoiling her".

Contemplating turning 40, Holly told This Morning viewers how she felt she had become the "best version of herself".

She celebrated on air by drinking champagne, tucking in to her cakes and breaking down in tears during a special message from her teenage crush Paul Young.

Holly started off the day in floods of tears as she was welcomed backstage by a tunnel of balloons.

Co-star Phillip showed off the incredible celebrations including hundreds of balloons and a giant 40th light-up sign.

Holly was speechless as she spotted the This Morning crew lined up along the corridor as they sang Stevie Wonder's Happy Birthday.

The blonde beauty was overwhelmed by the sweet gesture and began to well up and cry.

She could be heard joking to the ITV studio team: "I'm going to spend all day in tears."

Later, to mark the occasion, Holly wore the exact same dress her mum did on her 40th birthday to celebrate the milestone.

She was also surprised by her life-long friends on videolink as she celebrated the milestone birthday, sharing in some of Holly's most embarrassing moments.
