The TV presenter, 44, was granted a decree absolute this week, which has formally ended his 23 year relationship and 12 year marriage to makeup artist Lisa.
According to The Sun, Ant has handed over £31million to Lisa in their divorce settlement.

A source told the publication: “It's been an extremely difficult road with a lot of heartache and unpleasantness, but it's finally done. It's over.
“Ant's been desperate to start the next chapter of his life and at least now he and Anne-Marie can plan for the future. It won't be long before they are married.”
The divorce now leaves Ant free to propose to current girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett, who he has branded his “rock”.
Ant and Dec
Ant and Lisa had split in January 2018 after his public battle with alcohol and painkillers.
Lisa had previously denied that she would be receiving £31million in the divorce, taking to Twitter to reply to a fan: “Nope a load of nonsense AGAIN…”

“She doesn't care about that – she earns her own. But she has been so hurt by all of this.

“There were at least three years when she was at her wits' end and it was tough. Watching him move on was very, very difficult."
