While Ant has found love with the estranged spouses’ former PA Anne-Marie Corbett, Lisa had been taking some time for herself.
But it has now been reported Lisa has moved on with handsome chef James Howarth, 44.
The duo were pictured heading to a pub quiz and enjoying a few drinks recently before heading back to her home in Chiswick, West London.
Talking to The Sun about their rumoured budding romance, a source claimed: “They were extremely tactile with one another and Lisa was clearly enjoying the attention. He was just making her laugh all the time.
“They took part in the quiz but didn’t really pay much attention to it.
They seemed to only have eyes for each other. It was like no one else was in the room – it was lovely to see.”
Lisa – who was married to Ant for 11 years – was reportedly introduced to James after one of his sisters started working for her in recent weeks.
James – who is head chef at the Havelock Tavern, Chiswick – undoubtedly bonded with Lisa, 42, over their love of dogs.
Lisa shares beloved chocolate labrador Hurley with ex Ant, while James has an adorable Daschund named Harley – who he brought along on his date with Lisa.
With James Howarth regularly sharing snaps of Harley on social media and Lisa doing the same with Hurley – who she affectionately calls her “baby boy” – it’s imperative the two pooches get on.
Claire Hamilton, Managing Director at animal experts Hamilton Specialist Referrals shared her thoughts with Daily Star Online on how Lisa can ensure an easy transition for the two canines.
Claire explained: “James and Lisa must ensure they consider the difference in temperaments between Hurley and Harley. Labradors are notoriously friendly and easy to train, whereas Dachshunds can be more stubborn and jealous in nature so these personalities need to be approached with care and understanding.
“In the same way a parent would with their child, they need to make introductions slowly before they decide it is right. I would recommend involving an expert to help with the transition if they see any signs that it isn’t working.”
Claire then said that Lisa and James’ dog training techniques must align.
She divulged: “They will need to reflect on their styles of training and the rules they want to establish. Is jumping on the furniture allowed or what is their feeding routine, they must be equal in the household to ensure stability. The blending of families isn’t just about the dogs; James and Lisa are in a new relationship, so communication will be key for this to work.”
